We were recommended Donna's Restaurant by someone on a bus who overheard us wondering where to go for breakfast. A great diner with an excellent menu, and fast and friendly service. But I was particularly delighted to find that they were able to offer gluten free toast AND pancakes!

After ten days in New England our last meal was breakfast at Donna's. If you want a good old neighborhood diner this is it! Don't have places like this out west and miss them.

Had the special of the day - Peanut butter pancakes. Great pancakes!! The texture and flavor were perfect. Waitress was friendly and food was served pretty fast. Looks like an average place from the street but the food is above average. Also kids will love the Disney & dinosaur wall murals.

Donna's was on our route from the hotel to the subway. This is a great example of a family cafe. Very traditional American fare at reasonable prices. If you are in the Orient Heights neighborhood try Donna's.

I have been coming here since 1997! I started out here as a singleton on Saturday/Sunday mornings to breakfast it up with my friends after a night out and now, I'm a mom who comes here with my kids. Everything here is delicious. I usually get some combiniation of pancakes, eggs, and sausage. Donna's has never, not even once failed... More

Stopped in for a quick breakfast. Food was good and arrived quickly. Donna clearly runs a "tight ship" and the service is very good.

I was looking for a place for breakfast near Logan to meet a friend and decided to try Donna's Restaurant....it was great! The Greek omelet and the corned beef hash were delicious. It seems to be a local restaurant...everyone seems to know one another and by the end of our meal, Donna, made us feel like we've been coming there... More

Food was delicious, arrived quickly. The environment was welcoming and "comfortable" with Disney murals on the walls. Service was excellent and friendly. Many of the patrons appeared to be locals, familiar with the staff. If you are not careful you may go right by and not notice the restaurant as it blends in with all the other store fronts.

Great food, friendly staff. It's a throwback style breakfast and lunch spot. Large servings and great prices. You can order just about any type of American style diner breakfast.
