We have the best food around and a bustling, fun atmosphere to match. Try us and you'll be convinced! Our recipes are authentic and time-tested. We were selected  the Improper Bostonian as 'Boston's Best Breakfast in 2013' and have been a Watertown Reader's Choice Favorite for many years.

Our menu is packed with your favorite breakfast and lunch dishes and every meal is a winner!  Our soups are all created from scratch such as the New England clam chowder loaded with fresh clams and potatoes. Daily specials incorporate seasonal, local ingredients and many reflect a cultural food influence such as the Rustico Omelet (with proscuitto) or the Margarita Breakfast Sandwich (reflecting an authentic Mexican cuisine). 

Our History

Call in your TO GO order  (​617) 924-9625​



In the restaurant business, dining fads come and go but great food by professionals who treat you like family will never go out of style. Our tradition stems from the family atmosphere in which we were raised - this translates to satisfying portions, quality ingredients, and a ton of joyful noise from a happy crowd (and an eccletic playlist!).
