They serve hot breakfast items hot.

Food was delicious, omelettes were hot and fluffy and generously filled with whatever you would like. Coffee was hot as it should be. Short wait for food to be delivered. Around us we noticed that every table had at least 1 order of choc chip pancakes. We'll try those next time. Mostly young crowd... read more

Good solid breakfast fare. Service pretty good but not with a smile! Omelet, scrambled eggs, and fried egg all good. Varying requests for toast orders fulfilled.

Great for brunch or breakfast. Fast and friendly service. A great place to meet friends or family. You will always run into someone you know! chocolate chip pancakes are fantastic, as are the omelets.

Went here thanks to Trip Advisor and had a great, filling breakfast. Had the chicken cordon bleu omelette and it was out of this world good. Did not need lunch until 2pm because the breakfast was so filling lol.

Wife and myself stopped for lunch. I had the Horiatiki (traditional) Salad with grilled chicken and wife had turkey club. We each had iced teas. She stated the turkey was not deli meat and was good. I thought it looked a little skimpy. Salad was excellent. Consisted of sliced red onions, chunks of cucumbers and tomatoes, sliced green peppers and... More

Open for breakfast and lunch. Wide selection of breakfast foods, which are served anytime. Today my daughter had a chicken cordon bleu omelet, while I opted for a veggie one. Both served with large chunks of home fries and buttered toast. The choice of breakfast items is extensive, from omelets to pancakes & waffles, to choose-you- own combos of eggs,... More

Grandsons look forward to lunch of pancakes, hot dog and lemon soup after their swimming lesson. Family friendly staff that pay special attention to our grandsons! The children are very comfortable and we never feel rushed.

If you like breakfast and are looking for it in Needham this is your place. Best potatoes/home fries you can find, and everything is made to order. Try the scrambled eggs - light and fluffy. What most people don't realize is how good their homemade muffins are - yum! The service is usually very friendly and courteous, and the same... More

If you crave an excellent omelet then dine at Fresco. Cooked to perfection and served with toast and home fries. Only wish would be to swap the home fries for a veggie (a slice of tomato and a lettuce leaf) at no charge (I think it was .50 more to swap). Other than that minor issue this is THE place... More
