“Good food”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Again I wish TA had a good category instead of average. I would not say this is very good food. Our waitress was wonderful. We just wanted omelets and they were good and plentiful and very reasonably priced. We were not offered refills. She did come over and ask if everything was ok. The only problem with the diner was that there were an abundance of flies which were distracting.

“Glad we did not pass this one up!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This place was a real find! I only wish we had been able to eat here more than one breakfast. We had stopped in Bedford overnight on the way home from a 10 day vacation. The hotel we stayed in was not offering their customary complimentary breakfast due to remodeling. So, we (3 middle aged couples) started out to find someplace to eat. We saw the Bedford Diner and pulled into the parking lot. We were a little hesitant...it is certainly not glamorous looking. We quickly checked Tripadvisor reviews...and it sounded as if it were the perfect place for us. And it certainly was. The menu was varied, and the breakfast was great. Eggs, bacons, pancakes, waffles, etc. The eggs and bacon were cooked exactly as ordered (two of us like crispy, two of us like barely cooked)... All of us were more than happy with our breakfasts. And...the prices were terrific! The 2-2-2 (two eggs, two pieces of bacon, two pieces of toast) would have cost much more most places. This was definitely the cheapest breakfast we ate on our trip..and was excellent. The service was outstanding also. The place was packed and we overhead that they were “one short”, but you would not have known. The server was friendly, efficient, and never made us felt rushed or as if we were a bother. She was also very honest; when we ordered a “small” juice, she pointed out that it was about the size of a salt shaker...and she was correct (that was fine with me, but most of our group wanted a large). I only wish this place was closer to my home, so we could try the lunch and dinner offerings.

“Nice, friendly service”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

What you would Expect of a diner as far as food, good but not memorable. But The service was exceptional. Very honest as to what is fresh and what is not. Substitutions? No problem. Homemade desserts. Skip the mashed potatoes for now, but they are working on getting them fresh made.

“Pretty good food at fair prices”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Kids menu had cute names and was very cheap. Adult food was good with decent portions. French fries weren't the best but everything else was very good.

Very good home cooked meals at a great price! Fresh ingredients, especially vegetables. Omlets and pancakes were perfect. . . . . And service was good too.
