If you're looking for classy elegance, stay home. If you're looking for your favorite memory of an awesome breakfast/lunch at the local diner with your folks when you were a kid then you'll be in nostalgia heaven! Sometimes the memory isn't as good as reality but in the case of the Laurel Diner you will not be disappointed. There isn't a bad choice on the menu if you're looking for down home, stick to your ribs delicious fare. Warning! If you want bean sprouts and tofu don't even sit down! The only other downside, if you're in a hurry, it's a small place and always packed so be prepared to wait a bit - but well worth it!

It is small, it has a small breakfast and lunch menu an we are there every weekend! If we are not, we miss it so much. The staff is wonderful and if you like corned beef hash, it doesn't get any better than Pete's! Reasonable prices, but cash only! For lunch, the hamburgers are the best and the corned beef Reuben is up there with any New York deli! You will not be disappointed!

We went mid-week. Food is excellent and the portions are huge! My husband could not finish his burger and neither could I and I only ordered the small one while he got the 1 pound one. Lots of french fries and hot. Service was quick and friendly. A typical american diner by the side of the road.

This place is a diamond in the rough! Don't let the exterior fool you, the meals served up here and fresh and prepared with care. The pancakes are simply amazing as well as the French toast! I try to make it a point to come here every time I pass through the Southbury area. A must try!
