Wonderful breakfast

A wonderful breakfast joint with very friendly waiters. Takes only cash. And if your lost, it's just past the whole foods market past the liberty shopping area. The waffle is especially awesome.

Earned reputation as a perennial favorite for Dedham and surrounding communities. Weekdays and off-hours are recommended if you cannot wait in line. BUT breakfast is served along with other fine food and good cheer, throughout the day - you will not be disappointed!

Been going there since they first opened. Food is always good and reasonably priced. Most times there is a line so get there early

I love to come to this place for breakfast! it is just a comforting place with old style tables, friendly wait staff and big portion breakfast items. The food reminds me of holiday at home with eggs, pancakes, french toasts, omellet and other comforting breakfast items. It is always crowded and depending on the time, you may have to wait... More

Having never visited Dedham prior I would go back just for the old school yummy diner food. The staff was friendly and speedy all the while continuing to be pleasant even though they were quite busy. Everything was homemade and delicious and I would recommend it to anyone visiting.

I have only eaten lunch at the 50's Diner, so keep that in mind. It is a typical "breakfast all day" kind of place with comfort foods and some specials. The food is good and the service is very good if you like wait staff who leave you alone (I do). Quirks: If I recall correctly it is a cash-only... More

We stopped at this diner early afternoon on a Saturday. I just wanted a chicken sandwich and fries. They made it with melted cheese like a panini for me as I requested. It was excellent. We were getting ready to leave and my stepson couldn't finish the waffle he ordered. So I took a bite and could not stop eating... More
