We heard about this place from a number of different sources, including Diners Drive-in and Dives and once we'd visited, we could see why. Mike's is a cool old school diner which serves delicious food at a really decent price. We visited for breakfast, which I'd highly recommend. Friendly service, good food, good price - you've got to stop here... More

Excellent breakfast in a casual fun atmosphere. Staff is extremely fun and on point. My omelette was cooked to perfection and toast was crisp, not drenched in butter - just the way I enjoy it. My husband had pancakes and they were moist and delicious.

A little out of the way for visitors but definitely worth the trip. Recommended by a friend and glad we went. Absolutely great breakfast, fun atmosphere, good service and a good value.

We had two really god breakfasts at Mikes! It was really busy (always a good sign), great service and the food was delicious. Day 1 I had the breakfast burrito, it was so huge and very tasty would definitely recommend that. The next day I had pancakes, and they were so tasty! I loved the vibe at this place too?... More

We bumped into this place on our walk back to our hotel from Boston Medical. It was around 2 in the afternoon on a Sunday, and we sat at the counter. We were told that they only served breakfast all day on the weekends, but we didn't care, as we were tired and hungry. I ordered a simple breakfast --... More

When you see how crowded they get you realize your breakfast is going to be excellent. I had the hash and it was the best ever.
