Foursquare Tips

  • Come for the hot Brazilians in yoga pants, stay for the breakfast
  • This classic diner named after John Hughes's 1985 movie serves menu items named after the movie characters. Go ahead: Wear your scrunchies and Chucks while dining to an 80's soundtrack.
  • The new addition to the Club is full of rad movie soundtrack albums and 80s paraphernalia!
  • This adorable retro diner is off the beaten path for BU students but it's definitely worth the hike--try the Princess or the Basket Case in honor of the classic John Hughes movie.
  • Has everything you need to wake up after drinking til 4am: coffee, eggs, bacon, 80s movie posters on the wall and beastie boys on the stereo
  • Butt!
  • Don't be scared by the line - it's totally worth the wait.
  • Grilled cheese!
  • Super fast service. Got the check before the meal.
  • Great place. Go in groups of 4 or less. Friendly staff. Try one of the benedicts or try to finish "the basketcase". Lunch ain't bad either.
  • The place to go when you need that 1980's flair. When you go, you absolutely MUST try 'The Princess', a Belgian waffle topped with FRESH fruit, and real whipped cream. When you cover it in maple syrup
  • Super clean bathroom!
  • Don't go in big groups as you'll never get a table. Order one of the specials - big helpings at a small price!
  • Just go. Period - order the basket case to go all the way
  • Pretty good traditional Eggs Benedict and Buttermilk Pancakes. Great place to eat at in the Allston/Brighton area, come over when you get the munchies!
  • Pancakes are the bomb! Unique esthetic. Love it here!
  • If you are only two people sit at the counter. Fast coffee fillups and easy seating.
  • The retro-80's music/decor is fresh throwback to the movie this place is named after. Get a smoothie with your special (best value).
  • Bring back the Crunchy French Toast and the Banana Nutella Pancakes PLEASE!
  • They cook the toppings of the pancakes into the batter which makes the fruit go soggy
