This Is a small neighborhood diner - but the food is very good and the portions are generous. We had breakfast there - waffles and pancakes.. Very good and the price is right.

I went back to my home town for my 50th reunion. I decided to contact my best neighborhood friends for breakfast. At least, I wanted to try to get together. Anyway, my best buddy came down from New Hampshire and my next door neighbor girls came up from Cape Cod. My sister also came. We all were more like brothers... More

Service was fast, food was excellent, the staff was friendly and down to earth. The iced coffee was good and the hash is homemade. Will be returning.

My family and I ate breakfast here after an overnight in Braintree. We read the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. Delicious breakfast & quick attentive service. Would definitely go here again if we were back in town. Parking could be difficult. Yet I did notice that locals parked in the Riteaid lot across the street.

Had a great time here for breakfast. You seat yourself here and the wait staff is very friendly. The orange juice was fresh and Canadian bacon was yummy too! I ordered three scrambeled eggs with toast and home fries with a side of Canadian bacon for just $8! The eggs were fluffy and the home fries were seasoned very well... More

I can always count on good, simple, wholesome food at The Olympian. Everything is cooked to order, reasonably priced, and satisfying. Servers are fun and experienced and you won't break the bank. I just wish they were open later in the evening.

The Olympian is a Braintree-favorite for breakfast goers. The food is good and plentiful, the service is good and the prices are very reasonable. The only downfall: not a lot of parking nearby.
