A Boston morning breakfast fix

I flew to Boston from Chicago on an early morning flight and had not eaten. My cousin, who picked me up had not eaten either; she recently moved to New Hampshire and didn't know of a breakfast spot. So I googled "breakfast spots" and 'Donna's' came up, and so we went. Nice atmosphere, friendly... read more

This place is charming, and in a great location- right near the airport! The staff greets you and checks on you several times during your visit, and really makes sure you're enjoying yourself. They start with immediately pouring you a drink and handing you a menu and waiting until you look ready to order before they come back to ask... More

as you walk in, you are immediately greeted at the door by a staff member and asked if you want some coffee or something else to drink. And the coffee is delicious. Besides the extensive menu, there are always specials too. Now that it is Fall, pumpkin and sweet potato pancakes and waffles are being offered. Good service, reasonable pricing... More

Donna's is fabulous! You are greeted with a smile. The meals are always delicious. I have been going for years with my family. She remembers what we order! I cannot say enough good things about it.

Good menu, great staff, well prepared breakfast served quickly. Clearly a favorite with locals, it was our alternative to yet one more Hampton Inn breakfast.

This is a place that was recommended by the Staff at Winthrop Arms. The restaurant is quite large and can seat about 60 people or more. The place is family owned. The service is fast and accurate, the food is plentiful and very good. The prices were about right. Parking is a little tricky, but were lucky to be able... More
