Becky's Diner on Hobson's Wharf (390 Commercial Street) should be right up your alley. It's a place where everyone goes, from lobstermen to politicians. It's open for breakfast at 4am, so if you're an early riser, you'll be all set.

Marcy's on Fore St...very good basic brkfst/lunch...motorcyclers, artists, and tourists all mixed together for fun crowd.

The Porthole...on the wharf...has outside deck...again, basic brkft plus specials

Mim's...more upscale/brunch offerings on Commercial st.

What about Becky's make it so good? We've eaten at the Porthole because we love their home fries. We tried Becky's our first time in town but the line was crazy. Is it worth the wait and if so why?

THX!
