Kimberly Diner, where a patron will always get a warm greeting, fast delicious food, and often a hug with their meal from one of their friendly waitstaff.

Before I officially moved to Milford I was shopping locally for a complete set of kitchen appliences. The weather was horrid (an ice storm) and all restaurants closed early (around 9PM) and here it was 9:50 PM. And only Kimberly Diner was still open. We arrived at 10 minutes before closing time and were served two complete meals, while being the only patrons present. The staff was so nice and never once looked at the clock. We never made it home but slept in a motel in Stratford due to the terrible driving conditions. This is why I vote and place Rena and the Kimberly Diner at the top of my list. Bridgeport Diner is #2.

Kimberly diner!!! I just wish they didn't shorten their hours

The shiny diner, as someone referred to it here, was just found guilty of treating their staff very poorly. If they can't treat their help with respect, there's no need to patronize them.
