The Country Diner, located only a few minutes down Hazard Avenue from the consumer sprawl in Enfield, offers hearty food in an environment that strikes a balance between vibrant and cozy.
The wooden furnishings are welcoming as you enter the door. The police memorabilia, including patches worn by police offiers from the area and beyond framed on the walls, is immediately visible as the diner has been operated by former Enfield police officer Joe Ravelese since 1996.
The breakfast menu, served all day, is especially noteworthy. The eggs benedict are made with quality ingredients, a common theme with the restaurants offerings. Other breakfast menu choices include a bevy of omelettes, breakfast wraps, pancakes, waffles and the lumberjack sandwich, a french toast peanut butter sandwich.
Fresh soups and salads are always available and the lunch an dinner menu ranges from sandwiches, melts and wraps to chicken, fish, beef entrees and barbeque. The burgers are hot and juicy and the french fries are crisp and golden.
