While traveling up to Vermont we needed a place to stop for breakfast. After checking Google maps and our GPS we located Johnny B's Diner not too far off the highway. On the outside it looked like your typical stainless steel diner. The crowd waiting outside to get in was also a good sign. On the inside it was like taking a trip back to the 50's. Lots of cool posters, old 45rpm records and memorabilia from another time lines the walls and gives you something to look at while waiting for your food.

Because there was a wait for a table for two we opted for a couple of stools at the counter. The food was just what you'd expect from a diner. A couple of sunny side up eggs, sausage patties and rye toast. The coffee was very good and comes in a bottomless cup. The eggs were cooked just as I like em, runny and able to be soaked up with the toast. Our waitress was polite and courteous and made sure my coffee cup was always full.

Places like Johnny B's Diner are getting hard to find so when you find a place like this go and give them your business. Where else can you take a trip back in time.

Large portions of good food are served to you by the friendly wait staff. We had breakfast there and were well satisfied.
Interesting décor. No problem getting a seat and fast service.

The diner food was fine. Johnny B's Glenmont Diner is metal on the outside with booths & counter seating inside. I loved the kitschy 50s atmosphere in this old fashioned diner. There were 45 records on the ceiling & walls. They play 50s Oldies music (maybe some 60s as well) during the week & 70s music on the weekend. Heads up that, due to limited space, single diners are allowed ONLY to sit at half size booths or the counter. FYI, this authentic 50s diner serves breakfast & lunch only. It's currently open Tues. to Sat. from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm & Sun. from 7:00 am to 1:45 pm (closed on Mon.). Lastly, they have their own parking lot, & their menu is available on their Facebook page.

Walking into Johnny B's is like walking on to the past!! Memorabilia all over the walls and ceiling! A galaxy menu will make it challenging to choose! Food is delicious and generous! Staff incredible and the very personal owner will share the history of this diner that actually was called the Glenmont diner in the 60's!! How do I know? I used to go there. At that time they had a Juke box with he selector on each table! It is truly an experience! don't forget your $10.00 Johnny B Good T-shirt on the way out!! Do it !!!
