We picked this up through Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Constant tea and coffee the omelettes were gorgeous, generous and really light. Will return.

No fake eggs here! Best omelette I've ever had due to thin egg and lots of veggies. The two men at the grill are efficient and the wait staff are equally good. We sat at the counter and were in awe. A "real" VT experience.

This is s good little road side diner with a counter and booths. Food is home cooked and very good. Only rated it a 4 because they stop serving breakfast at 11 a.m. I never heard of a diner that didn't serve breakfast all day. People beside me were being served breakfast and we had to order lunch at 11:20... More

This diner has been around forever and has always been a good value. We've had breakfast and lunch there and ever been disappointed.

I have eaten breakfast here twice, and each time it was just perfect. First time I had eggs bacon potatoes toast - super yummy. Next time I daringly tried the eggs benedict florentine. Cant even describe how surprisingly delicious. Not to be missed.

Okay...I'll preface this by saying that I don't eat red meat, and I haven't for decades. It's a health thing. One thing I expect from a menu is an accurate description of what's in a dish. My son and I, travelling through Vermont on the way to visit relatives, found ourselves near the town of Fairlee, Vt. around lunch time.... More

I've been going here for an occasional weekend breakfast for 15 years and it is still the same. Good food with an ample portion, same chef, same waitresses. There are booths and there is a counter. A classic country diner. When I'm at my cabin and feel like treating myself, this is the place. They also serve lunch and diner... More

This is my favorite place for breakfast. You can get great pancakes and get real maple syrup included if you buy particular breakfasts. Also, they have a pulled pork omelet at times that is excellent. Occasionally I will eat there for lunch and have homemade beans and hot dogs. Get there early if you want breakfast on weekends. They are... More

We visited here about 3 years ago on our way to Maine. The Fairlee Diner is still the BEST! Easy going & local we had the special, a hot pork open faced sandwich.
