We enjoyed our breakfast here. The waitress was sweet and at the same time efficient. The coffees came immediately. I had their French toast with cranberries and orange - very good. The rest of the family had omelets with hash browns and enjoyed it.

While vacationing in Laconia my family and I tried the Union diner. The diner was just around the corner from the condo we were renting and figured we would give it a try. I think we arrived at the right time because the restaurant really started filling up while we were waiting for our food (around 8:30). The eggs and... More

The gentleman shooting a snot rocket on the floor as we entered should have been the clue to leave. Then my husband was given syrup with ants in it and on it...when we brought it to the waitress' attention she said oops, and took it. There were ants in the table! She brought back another one and said she got... More

We went in for lunch. There was two other tables of people and the rest of the diner was empty. There were at least two waitresses there. The food was good but it was almost as if they forgot about us as we were in the room you step down into. We waited a while for the check and we... More

The Union Diner is a definitely a place you should visit at least once. There's a real feeling of nostalgia having a bite to eat in a 1950's dining car. If you go in the morning during the week, there are early bird specials. Two eggs (any way you prefer), two slices of toast, and either beans or breakfast potatoes... More

Family of five stopped here on our way traveling through the area. Menu is huge so there is something for everyone. There are also various gluten free options. All of the food was very good. Servers are extremely friendly, and this seems to be one of those local places where everyone knows everyone else, but still welcomes "strangers" like us.... More

Took a long time to get a seat. Seems like they have no manager or someone to guide the younger group of servers they have. Once seated, the server was quick to come over and take our order. The food however took forever. We had to wait at least 45 min for our eggs to come. For a breakfast place... More

We called ahead and still had a bit of a wait, no big deal for a rainy Sunday morning. The food was fine. My husband and I both had omelets. They were average and similar to what we would've made in our own kitchen. Home fries were below average. Chocolate chip pancakes were great. We will be looking into other... More
