Zip's Diner on Rte 101 in Dayville CT, just a few hundred yards east of Rte 395, just past the intersection of Rte 101 and Rte 12, half hidden behind a doughnut shop.
We used to stop here when I was a kid on the way to the White Mountains, some forty years ago, and I swear the place hasn't changed . The place definitely lacks any claim to pretentiousness; its charm lies elsewhere. A definite step back in time. The food and service are great. I have only had breakfast here but I hear that the dinners are great too.
