Reviewed 22 March 2011

Having recently moved to the neighborhood, I'm glad we have a place like the Knotty Pine. It's a place where pretension is non-existent, and you can just feel comfortable and order some comfort food. You'll find all the breakfast favorites you'd expect, for very reasonable prices. The quality is not gourmet, but it is better than you would find in other similar establishments.

I was staying at the Indigo across 95 in Newton and asked them for a good breakfast place. They didn't even need to think before they said "go to the Knotty Pine". It's a nondescript entrance so you need to make sure you find the restaurant name so you know where to go. Luckily it's at the end of the block. It was the perfect place on a 12 degree morning - warm, friendly and smelling like breakfast and fresh coffee.

There are about 9-10 booths or tables along a narrow floor, and about 10-12 seats at the counter. I sat at the counter and had a "good morning, coffee?" and copy of the Boston Herald within 30 seconds. The menu has all the requisite breakfast dished you's want, eggs, homefries, hotcakes, oatmeal, French Toast, etc. I had an onion/pepper omelet cooked the way I like it - no runny eggs, potatoes and toast. The food was excellent and when they learned I was from Pittsburgh and had grown up in NY, I was given the appropriate razzing and poured more coffee.

I enjoyed it so much, and didn't need to eat again until that night, that I regretted they aren't open Sundays. If "Cheers" had been in a diner instead of a bar, it would have been here.
