Great neighborhood place. I really like having brunch here! They get the food out fast and it's a good meal for the price. It's a little crowded on Sundays and check their hours to make sure you get in the door on time

We live down the street and have been here many times. Their pancakes are delicious and fluffy. I love the juice and prices are very reasonable. Great places to come in Medford for breakfast. Take out too and portions are great.

No sleeping in on weekends, or you might encounter a wait line at times stretching out the door. Good sized portions of traditional breakfast dishes in a diner like atmosphere. service is quite quick and friendly.

We visited Dempsey's on the strength of the fabulous reviews here. We were nonplused by the cafe. The food and service were below average and the prices were above average. The coffee was below average for a decent breakfast place and they doled it out as if it was liquid gold. I had to ask three times for a refill... More

This was a very nice and unassuming place to bring together people coming south from Maine and north from Cambridge, because there was easy parking and room to sit for awhile. The staff was very friendly in this little restaurant, and the pancakes were really good. The omelet was okay. They seated us while we were still waiting for some... More

Dempsey's has the best breakfast around. Very generous omelets -- with anything you want stuffed in them. A side order of two eggs scrambled looks more like three or more. Great variety of food, too -- breakfast or lunch, you cannot go wrong. PLUS -- very friendly waitresses. TIP -- check the Sunday Mass schedule at I.C. Malden, and plan... More

I found Dempsey's via Yelp (Thanks YELP!), when I was looking to find a breakfast spot during my weekend trip to Boston. Having stayed at the Hyatt Place in Medford Dempsey's was a short drive away. I am OH SO happy I listened to my fellow Yelpers. Dempsey's RULES. The atmosphere is casual, laid back, Mom and Pop. Yes the... More

We ordered the stir fry veggies plate. It was delicious. Also. we ordered a two egg omelet. I asked the price. The waitress never came back with the price and we were billed for a three egg omelet. We never got the free coffee. Was a fiasco dealing with the owner about the correct price since no one in the... More
