This nice little cafe sits in Needham Center amid a number of eateries. We went on a recommendation and are glad we did. It is open until 3 and serves breakfast all day. The menu includes lunch as well. The service was top notch. Everyone friendly and taking time to be sure everything was fine. The prices are decent and... More

I love going to Fresco for brunch. Their omelets are really good, but their homefries are the best. They also have good salads and wraps.

Diner where the locals like to hang out at the counter at the back of the store. Typical diner menu made to order from short order kitchen. Recipes are Greek flavored. Food is decent, but you need to shout to get service. Had the Spanish Omelette with hash browns. Good enough that I'd like to come back for more. Decor... More

Nothing special but it works fine for a quick lunch- sandwiches are what you would expect- service is fine.

Good solid breakfast fare. Service pretty good but not with a smile! Omelet, scrambled eggs, and fried egg all good. Varying requests for toast orders fulfilled.

Great for brunch or breakfast. Fast and friendly service. A great place to meet friends or family. You will always run into someone you know! chocolate chip pancakes are fantastic, as are the omelets.

Food was delicious, omelettes were hot and fluffy and generously filled with whatever you would like. Coffee was hot as it should be. Short wait for food to be delivered. Around us we noticed that every table had at least 1 order of choc chip pancakes. We'll try those next time. Mostly young crowd on a Sat morning. Wait staff... More

Went here thanks to Trip Advisor and had a great, filling breakfast. Had the chicken cordon bleu omelette and it was out of this world good. Did not need lunch until 2pm because the breakfast was so filling lol.

Wife and myself stopped for lunch. I had the Horiatiki (traditional) Salad with grilled chicken and wife had turkey club. We each had iced teas. She stated the turkey was not deli meat and was good. I thought it looked a little skimpy. Salad was excellent. Consisted of sliced red onions, chunks of cucumbers and tomatoes, sliced green peppers and... More

Open for breakfast and lunch. Wide selection of breakfast foods, which are served anytime. Today my daughter had a chicken cordon bleu omelet, while I opted for a veggie one. Both served with large chunks of home fries and buttered toast. The choice of breakfast items is extensive, from omelets to pancakes & waffles, to choose-you- own combos of eggs,... More
