This place never changes and after over 40 years of visits I can attest to that. Large portions homemade food and a big crowd are normal. Try it you’ll come back.

This is a genuinely terrific, old time diner located about one mile from downtown Northampton. There is ample parking. The food is excellent and plentiful, the coffee good and strong, and service is fast and friendly.

We had a great breakfast here! The portion size is more than ample the food is always fresh and the restaurant hasn’t changed in years. Given the size of the crowd at the door, people like it that way.

Description
Award Winning Diner, Family Restaurant and Banquet Facility Jim Greco is the second-generation Owner, Banquet Manager and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. He leads his culinary team in serving freshly prepared meals to all of his valued customers. The Bluebonnet Diner is a local favorite that's famous for freshly prepared home-style cooking, a full-service cocktail bar, serving breakfast all day long, daily specials and everyone loves the G Scale electric train that runs in one of our dining rooms. Insider Seating Tip: Open seats at our full service bar (from 10:30AM to close) or our front counter (all day) are first come first serve seating with no need to check in at the front hostess station. So if you're in a hurry or just want to skip the line head straight to our full service bar or counter for dining and bypass checking in at our hostess station.
