Found this place in TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. My very picky wife and I loved our breakfast. The food came in large portions and everything tasted great. I throughly enjoyed the cornbread and the home fries. My waitress was very pleasant but very forgetful as well. I would definitely return next time I'm in the area.

While there's a wait to get seated, it's worth it. Good service. Nice selection of breakfast entrees. Joseph checked in at our table. Reviews are accurate: oj and home fries are very good. Kids meal is generously sized.

This is a small Italian restaurant on Main Street in Waltham, but it features breakfast. The breakfast menu is huge and has many novel and unique combinations of common foods. If you just want eggs, bacon, and toast, be there before 8am and get it for half price. Otherwise, be prepared for a great brunch. Eggs every way plus many... More

My daughter and I arrived at Josephs Two on a blazingly hot August Sunday and had to wait outside with the torrid sun beating down, with the staff griping at waiting customers not to keep the doors open because the AC was on. Once we finally got in and seated, the service was friendly and quick. My daughter enjoyed her... More

Went there this morning and had a nice breakfast. We arrived around 7am and had OK service. Seems like they could use more staff early in the morning. Mom ordered one of the "early morning specials" cheese omelet. She also requested ham. When delivered, it looked pretty sad....and did not have the ham. When we asked, we just got the... More

This restaurant has been around for ever. Unfortunately, it looks that way. The selection of breakfast meals is vast and if you don't find something on the menu, you can ask for a different combination. Service is prompt, friendly, and accommodating. The blueberry pancakes were large and fluffy but could use a few more berries. The eggs over easy and... More

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.
