This is a real old-timey New England restaurant with no frills but great food. I've only eaten breakfast here but it was delicious.

My wife and I took a fall ride through many rural rides in Connecticut with Charlene's Diner our destination. The server was excellent and we enjoyed our meals and the diner atmosphere. Definitely a place to return to.
