Old school since 1937

I love going to historic restaurants, this is the perfect place to have breakfast. There was no waiting when we arrived, we were seated immediately. They had the usual goodies on the breakfast menu and we were satisfied on the four different items we ordered.

This is a middle class 5 Star Rated Restaurant that serves top shelf food without all the Bling Bling higher priced Restaurants that charge you through the nose for the same meal but offer a high end atmosphere!

This is a nice, comfortable quiet ungreasy "greasy spoon" place. Go and enjoy the simple, clean and tasty ambience!

This restaurant reminded of an old town restaurant. The food was typical breakfast food - eggs, bacon, home fries and dark bread. Would definitely recommend visiting if in the area.

We come here ALL THE TIME with our kids and love it. The club sandwiches are my favorite (especially egg salad) the omelettes spot on. The gyros and Greek salad are authentic as the owners are Greek! The breakfast foods are favorites with the kids including waffles, French toast and pancakes. It's a family owned diner with real character. Love... More

Maugus restaurant is located in Wellesley, MA, serving a menu that features breakfast all day with an American, Greek flare. It is a family owned and run restaurant. The place looks like a diner. The atmosphere is old-fashioned. The booth tables and seats are very low and stale so is the carpet. The flatware needs to be desperately replaced. The... More

The Maugus is Wellesley's place to meet friends or business associates for breakfast. I typically have an omlette and my husband has scrambled eggs. They have always been good and the service fine. However, if you don't like eggs, there is an extensive breakfast menu with something for everyone. If you want to experience a quintessential, old fashioned New England... More
