My husband and I have been coming to Kristen's for breakfast over the past five years. It has typically been very good, until most recently. The service is pleasant, for the most part. The food in the past has usually been good, but our past few visits haven't been as good as usual. It seems like they are trying to... More

My husband and I love to go out for a great breakfast and try to stay away from franchises when we travel. Kristin's was a wonderful find! We didn't have to wait very long and the service once we were seated was fabulous, even though it was a busy Sunday morning. I got the eggs benedict and my husband ordered... More

This wonderful small breakfast,lunch spot is alway hopping. They have great food, fast friendly service and is a locals spot. Never had a bad meal, good prices and homemade everything. The only negatives would be waiting for a seat on a Sunday,but the line does move and it's worth it and the lack of parking. Neither of these negatives have... More

best thing is the option to mix and match your pancake selections. you can choose up to three different types in one order. egg sandwich is good too and you can request bacon to be extra crispy

My sister and I spent the night in Braintree and wanted to have breakfast before continuing on our trip. I picked Kristen's off the GPS and since it wasn't far from our motel we decided to try it. We walked in to find it very crowded and said we would sit at the counter rather than wait for a table.... More

Sometimes you might have to wait to be seated but it is well worth the wait. Usually go for breakfast but on Sunday's go early or you might have to wait over 30 minutes. Excellent eggs Benedict and pancakes galore.

This is the best breakfast place in Braintree but I usually go for lunch. I know that Kristen's is known for pancakes but I prefer the lunch menu. The owner, Kristen (naturally) constantly adds new items to the menu while keeping the old standbys. She has a varied menu ranging form turkey sandwiches to pasta and Thai stirfry chicken. She...

This restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is real good and they are known for their pancakes. This was my first time there and decided to have breakfast based upon other Yelp reviews FOOD: Good price for the food you get. Surprisingly, they had quite a few dishes that were homemade. (I had corned beef hash) Good quality/quantity... More
