This is a great diner-like restaurant in the center of Needham. I often meet clients and friends here for breakfast before starting my day. Most mornings you can see James Hugh Powers there along with other movers and shakers of Needham. The typical diner fare is served quickly with a smile on a budget. There is even outdoor seating if... More

My husband and I tried Fresco last weekend for the first time. We were there around 11:30 a.m. and this place was hopping! We were able to get a table within 10 minutes and every person on the waitstaff that we encountered was incredibly friendly, upbeat, and energetic. The decor is welcoming (not your typical diner decor) and clean. There... More

Fresco is a comfy, reliable spot with a diner-like feel and menu...quick and easy and very kid-friendly too.

Very kid- and family-friendly, warm service, and good breakfast and lunch options. Solid, not excellent, but very much our favorite diner in the neighborhood.

After arriving on an early morning flight into Logan, we went to Fresco for breakfast. Their prices are reasonable and we loved that they had outdoor seating, as the weather was perfect.

My favorite dish is the Tuna Melt on dark rye bread. But there is lots to choose from in this neighborhood style deli/cafe. Nice wait staff and reasonable prices. Try an "Arnold Palmer" which is a mixture of iced tea and lemonade and is very refreshing on a hot day. If you are over age 65, you need to ask... More

Nice atmosphere for a diner type restaurant. Food is somewhat above your average diner food. Good place to bring the kids. I would recommend their breakfast menu.

Ummm, yummy. Superb home fries, ample omlette neither fluffy nor fried with perfectly grilled English. And, the October morning was perfectly balmy, out-of-doors, with a most pleasant wait staff. This is a keeper.

Very good food, and prompt service. Good Greek dishes. Unimpressive decor, but very clean, and nice outside tables. Good quantities of food for a very reasonable price.

I go to Fresco's once a month for a breakfast meeting. It's a nice down home place with good food. But The coffee is horrible. Weak and expensive. It's beyond me why it's bad but is consistantly so. I bring my own.
