Went for breakfast with a friend. They have an extensive menu, with specials, etc. It was okay. Not great. Thick French toast was good, not special. The maple syrup helped it. The fried eggs over easy were done properly, potatoes were good, but the corned beef hash, even though it was grilled to crisp on one side, was mushy. Didn't... More

Loved Joseph's Two in Waltham! Visiting my son and he said: we gotta go to Joseph's Two for breakfast. He was right! Short wait, but we'll worth it. The food was excellent and fairly quick considering how busy they are. The wait staff is happy and courteous. I'll go here every time I visit!

This has been a go-to place for breakfasts for as long as I can remember and I have lived in Waltham since 1970. Good food. Generous quantities. Try it. You will be back.

Very popular spot on the weekend but I decided to try it during the work week. Maybe I picked the wrong day, but they were understaffed for a busy breakfast crowd. You can't blame the waitress who scrambled to get to everyone but not a great experience. The food is always good quality but you may want to avoid if... More

After seeing the relatively run down appearance we decided to give it a try. The chicken parm was amazing. My son loved the pancakes and french toast. We will visit whenever in the area.

Great American breakfast! Large portions, good variety, cooked to order. Always a treat when in the area. It's small so can get crowded on weekends/busy hours but it's worth the wait.

Had wanted to try this place, and the line was usually too long on weekends. Food was good, server very pleasant, good value. Don't expect fancy atmosphere, but count on good food. Delicious cranberry pancakes!

Not gourmet but better than most places and we seek breakfast spots everywhere we go. Delicious at times, pretty good at other times. Never had a bad breakfast. Husband always orders the hungry man special and shares; I order two eggs on a large plate. Overall, a great start to the weekend.

We eat here every time we come to Waltham. There always seems to be a long line, but it moves fast! Food is great, people are friendly and price is reasonable.
