Joseph's II is a great little breakfast nook in the middle of Waltham. Like all great restaurants, this place is constantly busy so you may need to use a little patience when waiting for a table. I have been here a few times and this time we had the cape codder (cranberry pancakes) and also the hungry man breakfast (pancakes,... More

We went to Joseph's II for a Sunday breakfast with some friends who frequented the establishment in college. The place was busy, but we didn't wait more than five minutes before we were seated. The decor has the vibes of "hole in the wall" diner, but the staff is incredibly warm and welcoming. The food did not disappoint. They have... More

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.
