“Old fashioned local hangout”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

A throw-back to decades gone by, the Maugus is a breakfast hangout for locals in Wellesley. The food is okay, the prices are fair, but beware they don't accept credit cards. The best part of the Maugus is the nostalgic atmosphere.

“Very slow, inattentive service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

The food is pretty good, prices a bit high, but large portions. Ts often crowded and the service is awful. It took 30 minutes for our breakfast to arrive. The toast wasn't hot enough to melt the butter.

The place to go in Wellesley for breakfast. Friendly and usually quick service. Good omelets and pancakes!

It was right in little downtown Wellesley Hills, the service was great, the place was phenomenally clean, the food was all fresh and good quality.

“I wanted it to be good, but it's not what I remembered...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Unfortunately my experience here was not as pleasant as I had remembered as a child. The waitress we had seemed like she could have cared less about our order and our empty coffee cups. Once our food arrived it was nothing special. Don't have plans to go here again.
