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

Early Sat. Morning and waitstaff were pleasant. Good portions, French toast, Greek omelet, homes fries and bacon were all satisfying. Only drawback was our table wasn't clean but sticky. Prices were fine and the outdoor dining is a draw.

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

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.
