Best Apple Pie

Apple pie was the best that I have ever had. The hash was very good too. Though, the portions were small as compared to what I would normally expect from a diner.

The only problem with writing a review of this place is that it attracts more people to it. It's a "hoppin', place, as those in the 50s would say. It can be a wait to get on, though as we haven't usually been there in peak times, the wait hasn't usually been too bad. And, it's worth it. The wait... More

This is a wonderful breakfast place - I'm kind of torn between this place and Sunrise Breakfast (Norwood) as to which is my favorite. I will have to come back here again. Only here once for work, and it was absolutely wonderful. Truly a great meal. Friendly staff as well. A bit crowded and busy, and they only take cash.

Love the 50's Diner. My favorite place to go for breakfast at any time of the day. All their food is delicious, fresh and is served very quickly by an excellent wait staff. My only complaint is it isn't open for dinner.

This is a busy little diner located on the fringe of an upscale shopping area in Dedham. As out-of-town visitors, we found the place on the Internet when searching for a place for breakfast close to our hotel. The line was out the door when we arrived around 9am, but my husband had the idea to skip the line and... More

One of my most favorite spots in MA, and always make a stop here now that I have moved away. Don't let the line out the door stop you, it will move quickly and the meal will be delicious! I often have a hard time choosing between breakfast and lunch items- I want them all! The wait staff is always... More

One of the best brunch I have had in recent times. We were visiting the city from chicago and found this place on Google. We saw a line at 10.30 and clearly showed the there was something about the food here. We chose to sit in the bar kind of setup and the lady was very nice. I had the... More
