“Great Neighborhood Place for Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Kristen's is a family restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch. There was a 15-20 minute wait on Saturday morning. The tables are close together and there is also a counter space which is first come first served. Kristens has a variety of approximatley 30 types of pancakes. One of my party got the pumking pancakes and said they were quite good. Another person got their 2-2-2; two eggs, two bacon, and two pancakes. If you order the specialty pancakes the cost of the meal goes up a little, which the waitress didn't tell us but seemed obvious to me (if not my dining companion). Her meal was good as well. I got an omlette with cheese, tomato, and sausage and it was cooked well and just as I liked it, served with a side of toast and home fries. The wait staff are busy but friendly and although there was a line waiting we never felt rushed. We received beverage refills in a timely fashion. I will definitely return!

“Small town yum!”

Kristin's is a small town cute diner. Friendly staff. Immaculately clean. We had breakfast and it was delicious. Good home cooking in a restaurant. When in MA, we'll return!

“A lot of hype for nothing.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Stick to the basic simple stuff, and you may be OK. The waitresses push the specialty items, and we should have resisted even though these sound yummy.
Cornmeal pancakes, are so dense, it's like eating cardboard.Stay away from these!Maple syrup is extra charge-otherwise they give you that awful cornsyrup flavoured with chemicals. Eggs are left too runny,even when ordered "over".The blasting a/c means that your breakfast is cold about 10 seconds after being placed on your table.Do you want to eat cold,congealing bacon, eggs, pancakes etc? I didnt think so.Coffee is poor- why not upgrade ,even if you have to charge more for it?Warm,brown liquid that has no coffee flavour is never nice.

“Best breakfast place around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

Kristens always has such a long wait, but it is well worth it. Their food is great, especially the omlettes, and their pancakes, whic have many unique flavors.
