It's worth the wait! At first thinking this is small should we wait? Glad we did one of the best breakfast ever:). Breakfast is served all day BTW.

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch during a house-hunting trip to Waltham. The place is like a time warp, very nostalgic. The New England clam chowder and the Nantucket corn chowder were both very good. My lobster roll sandwich was excellent. My wife's garden salad was decent but nothing to write home about. Staff are friendly if... More

We went there for dinner. The interior is very dark and colonial style furniture. It probably has not been renovated since it opened. There is nothing fancy about this place but seems like a local favorite. The lobster salad club sandwich was excellent. Service was really slow but I think they were short handed that evening. It provided a family... More

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
