best thing is the option to mix and match your pancake selections. you can choose up to three different types in one order. egg sandwich is good too and you can request bacon to be extra crispy

My sister and I spent the night in Braintree and wanted to have breakfast before continuing on our trip. I picked Kristen's off the GPS and since it wasn't far from our motel we decided to try it. We walked in to find it very crowded and said we would sit at the counter rather than wait for a table.... More

Sometimes you might have to wait to be seated but it is well worth the wait. Usually go for breakfast but on Sunday's go early or you might have to wait over 30 minutes. Excellent eggs Benedict and pancakes galore.

This is the best breakfast place in Braintree but I usually go for lunch. I know that Kristen's is known for pancakes but I prefer the lunch menu. The owner, Kristen (naturally) constantly adds new items to the menu while keeping the old standbys. She has a varied menu ranging form turkey sandwiches to pasta and Thai stirfry chicken. She...

This restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is real good and they are known for their pancakes. This was my first time there and decided to have breakfast based upon other Yelp reviews FOOD: Good price for the food you get. Surprisingly, they had quite a few dishes that were homemade. (I had corned beef hash) Good quality/quantity... More

My husband and I recently went to Kristen's for pancakes since that is what they are known for. I ordered a blueberry pancake, and my husband ordered an apple cinnamon pancake. We could not believe the size of the pancakes; they were just about falling off the plates. My pancake had very few blueberries - considering its size. My husband's... More

Can't be beat for breakfast and lunch, good food, good variety and good prices. The location can be difficult for parking, but it's worth the effort.

Kristen's have the best pancakes on the South Shore. Kristen Son is the Queen of Pancakes. They have great breakfast served all day. A warning is that they take cash only but have an ATM.
