Orem's Diner

167 Danbury Rd., Wilton, CT - (203) 762-7370
Breakfast at Orem's is served diner-fast and is diner-good: crusty hash browns to accompany eggs, big hot muffins, bowls of warm oatmeal, and plenty of refills for your coffee cup. For lunch and dinner, there are excellent soups; and like so many modern diners, the menu is vast and far-reaching, from a whole page of Italian specialties to Greek gyros and chicken souvlaki on pita bread with a killer garlic cream condiment to corned beef with cabbage, classic blue-plate meat loaf, and sandwiches of all kinds.

" It’s hard to imagine traveling up the commercial bonanza that is Route 7 through Fairfield County today that it used to be a farmland road. When Orem's Diner opened in 1921, a drive in the country was a rare treat for city dwellers, who came this way past dairy ..."   [Read More]

Soups are especially good at Orems. Different ones are available every day. This is split pea, with croutons, on the first full day Orems opened in its new facility, June 10, 2003.

Orems has a huge, multi-page menu, with dishes from around the nation and the world. The one and only thing Jane ever eats is a hot turkey sandwich. The meat is moist and flavorful, the mashed potatoes are for real.

Crusty grilled chicken, chopped tomatoes and onions are heaped on a chewy pita bread and accompanied by a chunk of feta cheese (right) and a cup of powerful garlic cream.

When Orem's opened in 1921, it was surrounded by open land and Route 7 was a country two-lane.  Much of the road remains two lanes ... packed with traffic during rush hour!

Orems moved down the road in June, 2003, to this new building that is big and bright and very well air-conditioned!
