There was a lot of information about the healthy-ness of their ingredients, but the place could use a good scrubbing. The staff was very friendly, the food was tasty, the exterior quirky, the interior a little cramped. It was clearly a locals hangout, we have them near our town, across the country, and you can just tell, "who belongs". I appreciated the attention to their farm-fresh everything, but it should be extended to a good washing up at the end of the day.

The Chelsea Royal diner is the perfect place to meet or to grab a bite while you are on the road to somewhere else (or on the road to nowhere.)
You will be among locals and regulars, and even though this may be your first time at the CRD, or in Vermont for that matter, the service will be excellent, the food well prepared and tasty.

Diner food and it was excellent. Be prepared to wait especially if you go on a Sunday morning. It is "chaotic" BUT they ARE organized and will take your name and call you when your table is ready. All of the waitstaff seem to be NON-STOP - I hope they are appreciated for what they do! The are going nonstop, but still cordial and smiling. We went for dinner Saturday and breakfast Sunday - excellent

We stopped in on our way out of town. This diner is a cash only with an atm right in the entryway that charges $2.25. It was Columbus Day and it was busy. Seemed nice enough, though a wee bit unprofessional in our opinion when dealing with the waitresses and paying the bill. The first thing we heard was that each of the waitresses have their own cash boxes and make their own change. The food was ok. They were quick to ask if everything was ok but too busy to really hear the answer. When we were ready to leave the waitress brought back our change in 5’s and 1’s which left us with the dilemma of too little tip or too much. We opted for too much. If you stop by be prepared for the cash only surprise!

Came across this 1939 diner on our drive along Route 9 from Bennington to Brattleboro a week ago. The home cooked platters (Roast Turkey & Stuffing and Grilled Liver & Onions with choice of potato and vegetable @ $10.99 each) were delicious. Service was friendly and quick. Prices are quite reasonable (cash only). Breakfast is served all day. Hours are from 5:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Enjoyed it very much.
