If you are looking for the quintessential diner, this is it. It has a wonderfully huge menu, with everything you would ever want. The food was delicious and the service was friendly. The place is huge, so you never feel crowded. The desserts looked great, however we were there for breakfast, which was perfect. The waiter was right, I should... More

Years ago this place was special. Now ownership is cold, food mediocre and overpriced. Bakery good no special.

This fairly typical diner was crowded for a Tuesday at 11 AM, probably because this is a holiday week. The waiter was polite enough, I guess, if your thing is "turn the tables Olympics". "Would you like something to drink?" Seconds later the coffee and tea clatters down with a resolute thud and immediately: "Have you decided what you would... More

Needed a place to get something other than late night bar food Minellas was the place for us. A diner with a full bar, and everything from breakfast to dessert. Our waiter was friendly and new everything on the menu. My Peppermint stick chocolate martini was excellent. My husband rates diners based on the Ruben sandwich and this one tops... More

If you are in the mood for diner food, eat here! My husband and I ate here on a Sunday morning while our son was playing lacrosse nearby. We sat right down, no wait for a table. The menu offers lots of choices. Service fast, food is good at a fair price.

Whatever you do, don't order an appetizer. Not that they're not good (they are), but the dishes are so enormous, plus soup or salad, plus two big sides (coleslaw, fries, mashed potatoes, etc) that you're not going to need to an appetizer. Come starving. From the name, you can tell there's an Italian flair. The pasta and chicken dishes are... More

We come to this diner every time we come up for the Dressage at Devon horse show. But NOT ANY MORE. We ordered the prime rib. We were told 15 minutes after we ordered that they did not have any baked potatoes. So we cancelled the order. The waitress brought the food to us anyways and told us we could... More

I really love this diner. The line always looks really long, but somehow the wait isn't too bad. Great Greek food, soups, and bloody Mary's!
