“Best Breakfast”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This by far the best breakfast in the Boston area. During the winter it serves indoors with small tables. But during the warmer months they have an outdoor area with picnic tables under grape vines. You have to try anything with Lingucia! Also bring cash to pay as they do not take any credit cards. Also expect to wait on weekend mornings, but they provide free coffee. This is well worth the wait!!

“breakfast at the Neighborhood”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you like breakfast and a lot of food this is the place for you. It is sort of a hidden treasure. You have to try the cream of wheat there is nothing in the world like it. Plenty of food and plenty to choose from. If you are in the neighborhood be sure to stop in you won't regret it.

“just ok overpriced”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

The quality of food here and quantity is pretty decent. I would say for what is around locally and the atmosphere in the restaurant you can absolutely get the same quality of food for about thRee dollars cheaper a plate and with much updated Ambiance!

“Great experience but not fancy”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

This place makes you feel like home. This was our first visit and there was a wait when we arrived on Sunday morning. I usually don't like waiting but the line moved quickly and they offered everyone free coffee and sweet bread while they stood about. It didn't take long for our party of 3 to be seated and the inside feels like the diner it is. The breakfast menu was extensive and they had lots of specials as well. Most of the items on the menu cost between $8-10 but included juice, coffee or tea and either a baked apple or bowl of cream of wheat. I had three eggs, sweet bread French toast and hash browns. It was all perfectly prepared and delicious. They were also very accommodating to the special requests made by my wife and daughter. I would return in a second.

“nice if you don't mind the wait”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

I have been here a couple times and only once got in without a wait. This is a very popular place. You get a lot of food for a very reasonable price. The tables are very close together inside, and the bathroom is downstairs with a low sloping ceiling. I like breakfast here the best, in the outdoor area. I would have gone last weekend when visiting, but the wait was much too long. Will try another time i am up here.
