Small old-fashioned diner for breakfast and lunch. Lots of specials (written on the upper part of the walls around the diner), Reasonable priced. Food and service were good. Minimal parking.

My husband and I went for breakfast after church on a Sunday morning. We only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table- it is a very small diner. They have a pretty decent menu, along with specials written on white boards hanging up in a few places. They are known for their homemade hash and hash browns.I had... More

Good food and plenty of it. Reminds us of the old trolley dining of years past. Friendly staff and fun to watch your meal cooked. Go early as the place fills up fast.

I love Diners and the Laurel Diner did not disappoint. Fresh made hash was delicious and the eggs were cooked perfectly. Having a choice of hash browns or home fries was nice. Small place and we had to wait about 10 minutes for a seat on a Sunday morning, service was good. Coffee was nice and hot but just a... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. Laurel diner is a small, hole in the wall place, with the best breakfast. I've never had anything bad. Pancakes are the fluffiest I've ever had. Far better than Leo's, Chips, or iHop. Cinnabun french toast is delicious. (Very sweet). Kiki is probably the best item on the menu. I've had various omelets... More

I enjoyed this restaurant and loved the food. It was very basic and quite traditional. Nothing fancy about the Laurel Diner....and I like that!

The food and staff make this a great little local place to have breakfast or lunch. I love the old time feeling sitting at the counter watching the chef make your food.
