Return to Comets Diner in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts

Occasionally we venture a little bit outside of New Hampshire for breakfast but often we are too hungry to even think about driving over 40 minutes before we find sustenance. As we were passing through Nashua on a recent weekend, my wife suggested Comets Diner in Tyngsboro, a restaurant we have been to before but not for a long time.

We visited on a Sunday and it was extremely busy. The parking lot is small and it took me a few minutes to find a spot. Upon entering, there was a huge crowd of people waiting to be seated, which you do yourself. My preference is for the restaurant to handle the seating to avoid confusion, however, I will say that everyone was nice and knew where they were in line so it wasn't a problem on this day.

The decor is a throwback to the 50's with lots of pink neon signs sprinkled throughout and records on the walls. They have tables in the middle of the room along with booths on the sides as well as a counter top.

We ordered up caffeine and studied the menu. They have a variety of options including the typical items: omelets, Benedict's, burritos, pancakes, waffles and French toast.

My wife went with her usual, an omelet filled with well-done corned beef hash along with their hash browns and a grilled plain bagel:

She enjoyed her meal very much.

I went with the two eggs over medium, bacon, the same grilled bagel and hash browns. Although it took a little longer than we would have liked for the food to arrive it was hot and that is always appreciated. This seems to be a problem at many breakfast places because the food sits for too long and gets cold but not here.

Our waitress provided excellent service which can be tough given how crowded the restaurant was.

So there you have it. Although it has been a long time, our return to Comets Diner was a pleasant one.
