Good food, good value, expect to wait

Had wanted to try this place, and the line was usually too long on weekends. Food was good, server very pleasant, good value. Don't expect fancy atmosphere, but count on good food. Delicious cranberry pancakes!

Not gourmet but better than most places and we seek breakfast spots everywhere we go. Delicious at times, pretty good at other times. Never had a bad breakfast. Husband always orders the hungry man special and shares; I order two eggs on a large plate. Overall, a great start to the weekend.

We eat here every time we come to Waltham. There always seems to be a long line, but it moves fast! Food is great, people are friendly and price is reasonable.

Stopped in while visiting daughter. Nothing special. Typical diner type menu. Kitchen seemed disorganized as everything came out at different times. Pancakes were disappointingly doughy and heavy. Limited and difficult parking. Bottom line: not worth the effort.

This is our breakfast go-to spot and it's amazing. The Berkshire Breakfast is apple crisp French Toast and it's incredible. I have to get it every time. My husband loves the corned beef hash, huge omelettes, and pancakes. It gets crowded on weekends so you may have to wait a few minutes for a table but it's worth it. We... More

We had an emergency dental appointment in Waltham, and were looking for a place for breakfast. This was close by. Our waitress was efficient if not terribly friendly. (Hey, I'm not a morning person either). The place is small...we could easily hear the conversation of the couple at the next table. However, we were here for the food and the... More

Great breakfast. Worth the price. Good service too. Had plenty of food for two in one breakfast so we split it to keep the calories down.

Small and very crowded. Great food; I was there for breakfast. I believe they serve lunch and then close. Obviously a very popular place.

even on a busy Sunday morning the wait was not too long for this small restaurant, because of how efficient both the kitchen and the servers were. I had cranberry pancakes, which I highly recommend and the eggs were good as well. great local causal restaurant.
