Happened across Josephs Two while passing thru Waltham. Its nothing more than a diner, packed with senior's trying to get a good deal on lunch. My wife had the garden salad and it was decent. I had the turkey club; it was fine. My son had the chicken parm sandwich. He like it-he was hungry. Coffee and service were great.... More

My boyfriend and I live right down the street and go here all the time. Hands down they have the best breakfast in Waltham. The staff is friendly and the prices are fair. They have all sorts of combos and specials. My favorite? The lumberjack breakfast with blueberry pancakes. YUM!!! p.s. Don't let the long line out the door turn... More

The eggs Benedict was very good along with the omelette my girlfriend had, it is classic homemade establishment with nothing fancy but good homemade food.

This small restaurant is quite crowded on the weekends, for good reason. They serve very tasty breakfasts at a very reasonable price. The pancakes and fresh-squeezed OJ are particularly good.

The food wasn't bad, per se. It was just very bland. Once we added salt, pepper and hot sauce to the eggs and home fries and butter and syrup to the pancakes, it was much better. Obviously, you shouldn't have to add seasoning. The fresh squeezed OJ was really good, My girlfriend also enjoyed her coffee. That might not sound... More

We had breakfast at this restaurant the two mornings we stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn. We were on a road trip so we were up early every morning to see things around Boston and they had an early bird breakfast for $4.99 which included a big glass of orange juice. Service was friendly and quick and helpful. It was... More

My family and I had breakfast there last month. It is a very unpretentious place serving great pancakes, waffles, omelets, etc. The banana walnut pancakes and apple crisp French toast were amazing. Highly recommended.

Popped in for breakfast on a busy Memorial Day Monday whilst visiting from Scotland. Poached eggs were excellent with the French toast complimented by fresh strawberries and cream. Service was excellent with staff always on hand and only too happy to help. One of the rare occasions I was happy to queue for a table!

This was our first trip to Joseph's, but it won't be our last. My daughter and I had driven past at lunchtime and saw that the parking lot was full--always a good sign. We went back around 2 pm, when it wasn't crowded and ordered from the all-day breakfast menu. My daughter's cranberry pancakes were huge, fluffy, and delicious. My... More
