Breakfast!

Have been to the parkway many times - a favorite in Worcester. First Saturday morning that was really busy. Staff seemed a little stressed. The food was delicious and portions as always are large. The parkway special - scrambled eggs, bacon, dark rye toast and home fries. Home fries are real... read more

The Diner part is closed, or was at 6pm on a Friday night, so we were directed into the "restaurant" part which is really a bar. The food was good, but didn't come with a side, just a sandwich on a plate unless you added fries for an extra charge. The wait was not super long, but there was no... More

After waiting too long at 2 other restaurants we thought of this as a late breakfast venue on a recent Sunday morning. If you want a great Italian -American breakfast cheap, with no frills this is the place for you!!! Get the "Shrewsbury street" and it's enough for two or get a regular breakfast for less than $6 with coffee.... More

Stopped in here for lunch on a tip. They serve just really good food with no frills and great prices. I had a grilled sausage sandwich and it was very tasty! I will definitely be back if in the area again.

Great breakfast and friendly, fast service. Located in a nice area on Shrewsbury st. Fairly priced. They also have a bar area for night time fun and dinner.

At first we thought this was a typical Shrewsbury Street diner, only to find that the attached restaurant and bar area was clean, with very friendly staff, and great food. Would recommend to anyone who likes Italian food reasonably priced. Great for a sandwich, or a full dinner. The antipasto was great.

Went here with a few friends for breakfast. The food was nothing special. It is open 24 hours and its great 2am grub, but not good while you are sober. The waitresses acted like she was doing us a favor by taking our orders. When our drinks and food came up, we had to go over to the counter to... More

It has been years since Ive been over tot he Parkway. It looks like they have done some recent remodeling and it came out nice. The service was quick and friendly. I got the Celtic Breakfast and was disappointed in the quality of the corned beef hash, but my eggs, toast, pancake, and homefries were very good. I couldnt tell... More

The desk at our hotel recommended Parkway to us and told us it was a good place for breakfast. They were right. Parking is not so great but breakfast was wonderful. The wait staff was attentive and service was quick. Would definetely go back here anytime we are in the Worcester area.,

Sunday morning the place is packed for breakfast. Food is consistently delicious. My fav is the meatball omelette. A giant Italian meatball is broken up with some extra 'gravy' (tomato sauce), covered with cheese (any kind you want) and folded into an omelette. Awesomeness!
