    A little cramped on weekends, but the food was worth the loss of elbow room. Chocolate chip banana pancakes were great.

    The decor is so much fun! The banana Fosters French toast is great, just a little too syrupy.

    Best of Boston 2016: Diner 🍳 :: Don’t miss the “Alexa” omelet with Greek sausage, spinach, and feta; and the pulled chicken and waffles with sriracha gravy.

    All the food is great, less busy during the week but at weekends be prepared to wait in line for a free booth. Would eat here every day if I lived close enough.

    My new favorite breakfast spot in Boston area. Omelette w/avocado, pepper jack cheese & linguica was topped off with sour cream & home made salsa. Pancakes with real maple syrup great!

    This adorable retro diner is off the beaten path for BU students but it's definitely worth the hike--try the Princess or the Basket Case in honor of the classic John Hughes movie.

    Great place. Go in groups of 4 or less. Friendly staff. Try one of the benedicts or try to finish "the basketcase". Lunch ain't bad either.

    The place to go when you need that 1980's flair. When you go, you absolutely MUST try 'The Princess', a Belgian waffle topped with FRESH fruit, and real whipped cream. When you cover it in maple syrup
