Took a taxi ride to visit here and worth it. Made very welcome and large portions. Very friendly waitresses and good place to spend Sunday breakfast. Lots of locals too.

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.

Typical Diner place, the brunch is OK, not exceptional. The eggs, scrambled eggs are better than the pancakes.

This is the place to go if you are looking for classical diner fare. Nothing chi-chi about the place or the menu. Portions are just what you'd expect. I love the poached eggs on corned beef hash! And you can get raisin toast with it! They even know how to properly brew a pot of tea. Closes at 3 pm... More

Another fabulous breakfast joint (hadn't had an opportunity to try it for lunch or dinner). Fast service, great food, reasonably priced, but get there early to avoid a long wait.
