I've stopped at this place many times. Small place and doesn't seat very many. Food is always good. The best pork tenderloin sandwhich I've ever eaten was at the Ideal diner. Service is quick and food is great. Many truckers stop here for breakfast because they know the portions are lagre and the food good.

The Ideal Diner is an awesome place to go for breakfast, lunch or brunch. It's an old-school family run diner with the greatest food. Part of the fun is watching the cook make everything up right in front of your eyes and it's an amazing site to see! It can be busy, but usually spots at the counter are pretty quick to turn around! Cash only, but prices are great!

As one of the past regulars at this place I always felt it was like Cheers without the beer. They have the best and most experienced hash slingers in town so don't question them, they know what they're doing and they'll let you know it too. They'll put a glass of cold water in front of you almost before you can sit down, Their soups are homemade and the clam chowder on Fridays always runs out cuz it's so good (best in town I say). So, if you want good diner food served up hot with plenty of old fashion diner attitude, this is the place.

Counter-only seating provides first-class front-row entertainment for the floor show - namely watching the fast-order cook prepare your order. A fabulous breakfast from a fabuolous era!

Pros: Fabulous breakfast + memories incl.

Cons: None

If it's a small (really small, only 8 stools I think) friendly place you're looking for, look no further than the Ideal Diner. Popeye and Olive Oil will love to take your order! Traditional breakfasts involving toast, eggs, bacon, pancakes - you get the drift.

Little places like this are going to be gone soon, visit while you can.

A great place for breakfast! It's very small and tucked away, but this adds to the experience. Sit down at the counter and watch the cook prepare your food right in front of you. Listen to the conversations with the regulars. Not fancy like the more popular restaurants now, but the food is good and the ambiance still can't be beat.

What a joy to eat here. 14 stools. People slid down so we could sit together. Watching the cook make our food, slide it from the grill to a plate, turn around and set it right in front of us. Listening to all the regulars banter back and forth. The food was great, everyone was friendly. We had a great time.
