Wonderful brunch

This is a firm favorite for brunch. Get there well before you eat to put your name down on the list outside, and they’ll get you in as soon as possible.

Came here with the family for breakfast. We waited a few minutes to be seated and then got our menus. Service was fair, not great. There was a lot of food, some of it was better than others. All in all a good value as you got a lot of food for your money. They have some Portuguese items on... More

Family visit to Boston, so had to try the cream of wheat, seven of us enjoyed it. Nice friendly family atmosphere, Big hearty American breakfast. Only problem is they have not mastered a good cup of tea!

Stopped in here for breakfast - unprepossessing looking place. Was very pleasantly surprised to find really good breakfast place. The food was really good and plentiful - the waitress was funny and sassy and quick. Great place.

Good food. Large portions. Friendly service. A down home place for a decent, low cost breakfast. Their baked apples are a treat. Their coffee has room for improvement, but I doubt anyone is going to this place primarily for the coffee.

Stellar food, reasonable prices, wonderful dining atmosphere. If there's a wait, they usually provide snacks (fresh muffins or pastries) to those in line.

Tea and Coffee were served promptly on arrival, along with a glass of orange juice. Then we all ordered the cream of wheat which was fantastic. I wasn't feeling overly hungry and I was starting to realise how large the portion sizes in America were! I ordered just one blueberry pancake with some fresh fruit and it was lovely. The... More

Glad we got there early as there was a queue when we left - always a good sign. Great breakfast, being from the UK, creamed wheat to start was an experience, good though. Pancakes, omelettes, waffles everything was served quickly and nice and fresh. Only thing i wouldn't advise you to order is the tea, mor elie dish water ;-)... More
