  • Thurston's diner is an unpretentious gem. A comfortable familial place where you want to go again. Warm, homemade food, diner standards done right. Great French fries and home fries. There's always a fresh pot of coffee, its really an extension of your family living room and that's exactly what it should be.

  • Order: Western and fries

  • This is the best breakfast in Peterborough. Not cheap, but very high quality stuff. None of those hash browns that leave behind... this stuff is awesome.

    It's a a great family business that makes great food. I'm happy to give them my business.

  • Does everyone try to do as little as possible there? What's a person to do for a refill of coffee? Takes forever for anyone to come out and ask "is everything ok." One miserly little napkin for a meal??? Dirty table and slow service. Would not go again.

  • Order: Omelette with toast and coffee
