What an omelette!

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

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
