Second morning in a row! This place is amazing and economical with adequate street parking all around. Four adults eating for an average of $10 each. We’ll return here next time we come to Boston.

Definitely not a lot of frills at this counter service diner but the food is wonderful. Hearty breakfasts and good coffee made us all happy and ready for the day. And the prices are very reasonable.
