  • The food is super cheap and good, so it gets crowded. When you get seated, try an omelette and/or a side of corn beef hash.
  • This old school Breakfast spot has everything you need to start your day. Try anything
  • Some favorites from our review: thick, toasted, home-style cornbread with melted butter (a favorite), the grilled cheese sandwich with bacon and tomato, onion rings, and the chocolate frappe.
  • Great breakfast & lunch. Super service
  • Excellent service, food, atmosphere, prices. I love the pancakes & bacon. Coffee isn't good but it's a diner!!
  • Cheap and good! Just bring cash ... and no bathroom!
  • Cheap eats, fast service, and classic new york attitude. You'll love it!
  • Awful service. Woman called Donna Rude. Definitely would go again
  • Great food friendly staff. The food is absolutely delicious and priced extremely well. Definitely the real deal for diners in all of New England. If you are ever in the area you MUST stop in !!!!!
  • This is a real deal diner. The burgers are basic, but perfect for what they are. The fries are very good, but need salt. Great people watching too. Cash only and very reasonably priced.
  • Awful service. Greasy spoon. Will come back for sure

  • Bring cash, but not a lot of it.
  • Get the French toast. Absolutely delicious!!
  • The most interestingly non-Brookline but so-Brookline greasy spoon. The service is "special" (I adore it!) and the specials are EVERYWHERE. Go for breakfast with a side of lunch!
  • Homefries are legit. Get them... or else
