Good little breakfast place. Small little diner, very very busy. Servers are so sweet and the food is good and cheap. Downside, cash only!

Your standard, no nonsense breakfast place. Food was hearty and delicious. Cooked on a giant griddle. Staff worked like a well oiled machine and were beyond friendly. Highly recommend!

Had a big hearty breakfast here. Food was good with a lot of locals and that hometown feel. Waitress was a hoot.

Home town diner with great selection of breakfast and lunch items. Nothing fancy in this small dining area but you walk away full and satisfied. True Americana diner feel. Street parking.

I love this small hometown favorite. The breakfasts are plentiful. The wait staff is local so everyone knows them.

My husband and I were in Boston and looking for a local breakfast spot. High Tide was just that spot. Reminded me of a Waffle House but definitely not Waffle House food (nothing against Waffle House) The Stuffed French Toast was outstanding. The Home potatoes were also great. Yes, I had both.
