Boston cream pancakes

Very good breakfast especially the boston cream pancakes. Nice affordable diner. Only reason it is not a 5 is the place In General could have been a little bit cleaner. Everything was good otherwise and we enjoyed our breakfast and the service was good. Good place to start the day

I was born and raised in Boston.The last time I ate at a true diner was over 60 years ago. Brought back great memories. I had ham and eggs and my wife an omelet. Both were delicious. Our waitress,Tracey, a true Bostonian was so friendly and attentive. You can be sure the next time we visit Boston, we will have... More

When you're craving some simple pancakes or scrambled eggs, stop on over to the South Street Diner. This place is open 24/7 which is great if you're wanting a late night meal. This place is also great if you have kids and want to show them a true diner experience. Read more about what to do and see in Boston... More

We chose the South Street Diner because it was within walking distance of our hotel. We were looking for a good breakfast on a Sunday morning, not a big brunch buffet. The Diner did not disappoint. Everything we had was well prepared, well seasoned, and represented good value for the price. The portions were hearty and filled you up with... More

My son wanted pancakes for breakfast, so we went to the diner. What a great experience. We arrived at the perfect time because within minutes there were multiple groups behind us. We opted for a table inside the diner. The only negative thing was that the booths were not very wide. My chest joined us for breakfast !! LOL. Food... More

We went there a couple of times for breakfast and another day for diner. It offers a great choice of breakfast from omelets to breakfast special with steak and eggs to French toast and blueberry pancakes. The variety is great, the portion enormous so be prepared, we never finish any of the meals.. Despite the fact that it was tasty,... More

We love Diners, but coming from England, they are very rare and we always make sure to visit whenever we come to the USA. We found South Street on TripAdvisor, and the excellent reviews do not mislead. This is up there with the very best, the menu is good, the prices very fair and most important of all the staff...

Service was fast, corned beef hash was very good, breakfast wasn't greasy like we expect diner breakfast to be. They had tons of eggs benedict to order from, though we didn't try them out. Good food for sure!

We stumbled upon this little gem late one night after a Red Sox game. We did a search for the nearest 24 hour diner and there were no regrets. I had an order of banana walnut pancakes and my husband had the chili. Food was great. Atmosphere was amazing. Coffee was delicious. Service was fantastic. Will definitely go back!

Awesome cheeseburger with a side of "cheese and gravy fries" I like to call them "Disco Fries" but not everyone knows them by that name. One of my all time favorite places to go, eat, and chill on an off night. Weekends are busy so get in, eat, get out, go home full and happy. Nice people, cool ambiance, great... More
