Kristen's have the best pancakes on the South Shore. Kristen Son is the Queen of Pancakes. They have great breakfast served all day. A warning is that they take cash only but have an ATM.

While I have always enjoyed Kristen's and anyone can make a mistake, I found the service last Sunday (April 14) to be inexcusable. My daughter and I arrived at about 12:15 and waited for 15-20 minutes to be seated and another 5 to be waited on. We had no problem with that. What I had a problem with was that... More

Kristin's is a small town cute diner. Friendly staff. Immaculately clean. We had breakfast and it was delicious. Good home cooking in a restaurant. When in MA, we'll return!

Stick to the basic simple stuff, and you may be OK. The waitresses push the specialty items, and we should have resisted even though these sound yummy. Cornmeal pancakes, are so dense, it's like eating cardboard.Stay away from these!Maple syrup is extra charge-otherwise they give you that awful cornsyrup flavoured with chemicals. Eggs are left too runny,even when ordered "over".The... More

Kristens always has such a long wait, but it is well worth it. Their food is great, especially the omlettes, and their pancakes, whic have many unique flavors.
