This was an OK Breakfast as diners go, but we went there at noon wanting lunch only to find none on Sunday's. Also, be prepared with cash or to use the ATM. Maybe it's my Gulf Coast tendencies, but too many CASH ONLY spots around.

We had a fantastic brunch in this fabulous retro diner. The service from our warm, friendly waitress was first class.

We are a European couple (British and German) and visited Kelly's on our New England road trip while in Boston. We had earmarked it following their Triple D appearance. The service was great. With the characters in there - staff and patrons, - and the style of the car it was a really enjoyable breakfast experience and on an affordable... More

Admittedly I was a bit disappointed when told I couldn't order from the lunch menu on Sunday mornings and reluctantly ordered a '#8 Homestyle' on the breakfast menu instead. What a surprise it was to enjoy breakfast food again! Great diner, will definitely hit up next time through even if I can't get a club!!

Planned to go to another place for breakfast and it was packed. Kept going down the street and came upon a bit of nostalgia. A real old-fashioned diner that looked like it was dropped there from another time. The service was outstanding! Two extremely pleasant waitresses covered the whole diner. There is booth seating and counter seating. The food was... More

It doesn't get more authentic than this place. Great food and service in a genuine diner car. We saw it on Triple D and had to try it out as we were passing through. Our kids loved it too.

We had brunch here and enjoyed the ambiance. They offer diner fare, including chicken salad sandwiches, pastrami and traditional breakfasts. I love a good chicken salad and ordered a sandwich which was huge. To generous to finish, I ended up taking it home. The breakfast egg style entrees were just as big. We were quite satisfied. The prices are reasonable.... More

Food and setting is so typically American it could be a museum. Service is efficient and very Boston. We loved it and highly recommend it.

We have family breakfast here whenever we are visiting our Tufts student. It is your classic diner fare. The sausage and pancakes are outstanding. The egg sandwich was little dry last time

Kelly's is one of three great breakfast joints on Broadway in Somerville. All had a wait for a table on a Sunday morning (to be expected). Our family chose Kelly's for its curb appeal. All tables are tightly situated in this dining car, which is a throw-back to the 50's. We sat shoulder-to-shoulder and didn't mind at all. It was... More
