    This place is a very popular Somerville right of passage. You must wait in the long lines on weekends for a chance at eating their creative, tasty breakfasts!

    Can't decide between eggs Benedict or corned beef hash? Get both with the corned beef hash eggs Benedict!! So good.

    The line looks scary on weekend mornings, but I promise it moves really quickly!

    "It's a hidden gem and an amazeballs breakfast spot. Get the breakfast burrito and ask them to add some corned beef hash. It costs a little extra but it's so worth it." Chef Joshua Breen Read more

    Get here before 9:30 on the weekend if you don't want to deal with a long line. Then order the crab cake benedict.

    Waiting in line? It will move quick, but there is no reason to wait for coffee! Help yourself to the stocked coffee bar inside.

    Amazing Waffles & Pancakes. The egg Benedict was good, and the variation of coffee flavors on the self-service bar is something unique. 👍

    Fahad Moussa · October 3, 2014
  • Tom W.

    Besides the pancakes, everything I had here was perfection. Also has a shorter wait than ball square.

    Tom Wang · September 8, 2014

    Awesome hash browns and the best pancakes/waffles in Somerville

    Alexandra Roberts · September 6, 2014

    Go next door to ball square for stuffed French toast and better service!

    Jeanie Nguyen · August 21, 2014
  • Stephen B.

    They carry Lavazza coffee and serve a solid espresso/Americano.

    Stephen Barnes · August 10, 2014
  • Daniel W.

    Excellent brunch - not decadent, just perfect. Moroccan style egg dishes with potatoes are perfect. Great vibe also.

    Good food and mimosas I think 4 kinds too. Hash browns were awful like left over mashed potatoes they tried to grill. Getting stuffed french toast next time

    Their fruit bowl is ginormous!!

    Not a bad breakfast spot. Dinner is not great and way overpriced IMO

    Daniel Levy · April 19, 2014

    Phenomenal pancakes and French toast. Great service and wonderful management . As good a breakfast as there is.

    Cornbreef hash omelettes....perfect! All I want for breakfast! I was impressed more than I thought I would be.

  • Rachael A.

    French toast with mascarpone cheese and carmelized strawberries is to die for

    Rachael Ahern · March 1, 2014
  • Bonnie R.

    In the winter bring something to cover your legs - the blast when the door opens distracts from the awesome food!

    Bonnie Rodgers · February 9, 2014
  • Neil H.

    Ask for a muffin instead of toast, and then get it grilled.

    Neil Hirsch · January 20, 2014
  • Stephen H.

    Order the malt waffles

    Stephen Hau · December 24, 2013

    Delicious food, quick efficient service, big portions. Definitely spot to hit for gainz and enjoy every bite. The hash is extremely awesome.

    Try the Banana Walnut Pancakes - Delightful!

    Sabrina M · November 16, 2013
  • Nadina

    Horrible. Poorly executed dishes and the service is sloppy & slow. Location has a lot to do with their popularity. Save your money & go elsewhere.

    Nadina · October 26, 2013
  • David H.

    Delicious, fast, and efficient. This place is perfect case study for how to run a restaurant.

    David Hill · September 3, 2013
  • Andrea S.

    Don't get the lox/smoked salmon. It is gross.

    Andrea S. · July 20, 2013
  • Sara O.

    Try the Eggs Benedict with Tomato and Avocado! Really nice place to get brunch in Somerville area

    Sara Ordoñez Fajardo · May 27, 2013
  • Gerard A.

    Place is way overrated. Only good thing is you can get a coffee in a to-go cup on the way out. Otherwise it's like a Denny's with extra spices.

    Gerard Amaral · May 25, 2013

    Best Breakfast in Somerville ,, home fried the best ...

    Trivia ! Come get some !

    ParanormalHooD · January 4, 2013
  • Alex K.

    Worst service ever. You wait 20 minutes for a soup nazi-like waiter who pushes you out the door as soon as your money leaves your wallet. Yes the food is great but definitely not worth the rudeness

    Alex K · December 31, 2012
  • John G.

    Has to bring In a service dog and the folks at SBs were very accommodating. It was busy too. Great staff.

    Go for the waffle specials, they are often fun combinations!

    Don Nolin · December 9, 2012

    The home fries are like mashed potato cakes!

    cant beat the self-serve coffee bar. they've thought of everything. except for maybe the option of whipped cream.

    Samantha Jo · October 2, 2012

    Food is good but the service is terrible.

    This place is known for its breakfast but the dinner is absolutely amazing. The service was great as well.
