I came here with a couple of family members for breakfast after hearing how good it was, and we were not disappointed. The line to get in was very long at about 10:00 in the morning, so there will almost certainly always be some sort of wait. I ordered basic scrambled eggs, sausage, home fries, and toast. My grandmother ordered... More

After not having been to Johnny's for about 10 years, I met a colleague there for breakfast this past Friday morning. The service was excellent the food was perfect – just what I expect from a good deli. Prices are what you'd expect for Newton Center. I want to especially recognize the manager who handled a food allergy request perfectly,... More

Went here on a Sunday morning for breakfast and waited about 2 min! Restaurant decor is attractive, coffee was refilled often (a must), food came out quickly. We (4) each had something different and agreed it was tasty. Would return.

Despite it's 12 dollar price tag, the Larry David sandwich (light pastrami and swiss on Rye) is the best sandwich I've had in a long time... And worth every penny. Can't comment much on the service, other than I took it to go and it came out quickly. If you're in Newton Center, try it. You won't be disappointed.

I had the chicken parm sandwich. It was dry and flavorless. My husband said his chicken salad sandwich was not as good as the one he'd had earlier in the week at The Chatham Squire. The women's room was out of order. Too kitschy for me.

I have only visited for breakfast foods, but never leave disappointed. Prices are very good and all guests I bring leave happy and full. I highly recommend the Waban Frittata. It is an open-faced omelette with mashed potatoes/bacon and cheddar cheese. Yummm!

We went to Jakes for the Chicken Matzo Soup and we LOVED it! It was delicious, full flavored and totally exceeded our expectations! Our waitress was friendly, efficient and gave us recommendations on other places to eat I the area.

Johnny's in a Newton is a sure thing for a tasty breakfast with the family. The casual food diner has lots of options and will satisfy all ages! On a recent visit, I had a terrific bowl of their home-made hot cereal and my kids enjoyed pancakes and french toast.
