    They don't take reservations, and there was a long line for Saturday brunch. Worth the wait--lots of omelet and other breakfast options. Generous portions and very reasonably priced.

    Good food at a very reasonable price. This place gets rather crowded on the weekends for brunch, so to avoid a wait, arrive before 11:00am or after 1:30pm.

    Best breakfast in the area. Always crowded on weekends. If you take the T to work it's a great place to stop in for a quick breakfast.

    Mark Wahlberg named this his "Best Neighborhood Restaurant" in a 2000 issue of Boston Magazine (Best of Boston). Also, the corned beef with chopped onions might be the best thing I've ever had.

    SmaLL, neighborhood Cafe. Friendly & worth trying. My #1 the "Power Wrap":fluffy egg whites, smoked turkey, spinach, Swiss cheese & mushroom. Yum! & a 'Bananna Coffee' ... The best & sOo affordable!

    Best breakfast diner in Boston. If you love corned beef hash, go with the McKenna's Special.

    The food is great. The customer service is terrible. They have no incentive to be better to their customers because they are always packed. Because the food and coffee is so good.

    The corn beef hash is delicious. And the omelet I had was delectable. Definitely coming back here again.

    If you like corn beef hash, this is the place to get it: fried crispy on the grill. Yum!
