Stopped in for breakfast/lunch before visiting the Adam's houses. Great little hole in the wall kind of place. I had the corned beef hash which was truly outstanding. Hubby had the huge one pound burger which he enjoyed. Menu prices are very reasonable. The older woman who was our waitress was absolutely delightful!

Great little place for breakfast or lunch as they are only open until 2:30p. Service was great and food hearty. Burgers are a pound each- really hugh! We had sandwiches which were hearty. Great price value for a quick meal.

After spending several days vacationing in Boston, we took the Red Line to Quincy to visit the Adams Historic Site. We had breakfast at the Early American Restaurant in Quincy and it was great! It's an old-fashioned diner with great food a warm small town feel. Made for a great break from the hustle and bustle of the Boston restaurant... More

The Steak Tips practically make this place a historical site! If you haven't had steak tips for breakfast you are not living your life right. Its also nice to see The Patriotic Decor in the place, you just feel proud of America in this place

With the blizzard(s) of 2015 making getting out and around difficult its nice to have this local breakfast joint within walking distance. Pancakes are fluffy, corned beef hash is very tasty and your coffee cup is bottomless. Lots of decor relating to the history of Quincy and surrounding area. There can be a bit of a wait when crowded but... More

This spot is open for breakfast and lunch. It is a good spot for a hearty home-style breakfast at a good price.

Had breakfast here on several occasions, was here last Wednesday morning, great breakfast as always, good value for money, and it's always busy which is a good sign. Will certainly be here again on my next trip to Quincy.

This place is one of, if not, the best breakfast place that I have ever stopped into. The food is hot, tasty & quick to your table. Prices are good--wait staff knowledgable and quick to refill your cup. What else could you want???

It is almost ten years that we are regulars here. In such a long time, of course we had good meals and not so good meals but that is how we started our weekends looking forward to have a Saturday morning coffee etc. We certainly missed Chriss and her joyful attitude but new staff is becoming more friendlier also, we...
