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.

There was a wait to get in so you would assume people don't mind waiting to eat the food. It was around 11:30 and we could opt to have breakfast or lunch. My husband had breakfast - his bacon was burnt and his home fries weren't cooked through. I had a pastrami on wheat - there was literally no meat... More

After seeing this venue listed as one of the Best in the Dedham area, we took an early Saturday morning 25 mile drive. The food was average in my opinion! Home Fries were very bland (no Onions nor Paprika). I had a Greek Omelette which was full of Spinach, Feta and Kalamata Olives and the filling was very tasteful, The... More

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
