This is your average diner, nothing more and nothing less. If you're looking for a variety of meal choices that are not the greatest quality but good price, this is the place. However, if you go on a weekend morning expect the service to be poor.

This is our go-to spot for breakfast on the weekends. The service is always friendly and accomodating. The food is basic, no-frills diner fare (omelettes, pancakes, etc.), but it's very good and consistent.

I lived in Somerville from 1971 through 1995. During that time, the Phoenix was never there. My Fiancee & I have visited a few times since, and found the Phoenix. It's nothing fancy to look at inside or out by any means, but their food is always nicely prepared, very tasty, and their servers are some of the best.

We've only gone there twice now, for breakfast. If and when we visit this area again, our breakfast will take place here.

The Phoenix cafe is like a small town diner. Even to the old fashion stools at the counter if you choose them over the booths. The breakfast menu is great with all the traditional omelets, waffles, eggs etc. They also have breakfast burrito wraps that are very good.
