I’ve driven by the Barrington Diner dozens of times. I used to live down that way and would go to the gym down the road. I never stopped though. Anyway, my friend and famous writer Jen Miller asked if I wanted to go and the timing worked out. (Side note, Jen wrote: Running: A Love Story if you need a good running and life book).
We went for lunch, and it wasn’t too crowded. It’s located on the main street on Barrington and attached to a cute antique shop. The inside is small but has metallic gold seats. There are plenty of booths, tables, and even a full-length bar.
The menu for the Barrington Diner isn’t anywhere online. They do have plenty of breakfast options as well as lunch options like sandwiches. They had one salad option too. It’s a small menu, and the Barrington Diner is only open for breakfast and lunch.
I decided to order the spinach and feta omelet with toast and tomatoes. Everything was good, and I have no complaints. It’s a “no frills diner,” but everything was fine. There was plenty of butter on the toast too.
The waitress was kind and friendly and came to our table frequently. Our food was also out fast. The waitress was nice and it was clear the staff was all friends.
For my omelet and coffee, it was $8. Do keep in mind, it’s cash only. (I didn’t realize that and had to break a $100 for an $8 meal…)
Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back?
I liked the Barrington Diner and would go back. It’s funny how long it took me to get there after living close for several years. It’s a quiet, but cute, small-town diner.
