Went her with my wife for lunch. The line was out the door when we first passed and for good reason. Fresh fruit juices and good smoothies, and food that filled us up. The price is the only reason this did not get 5 stars!

George A, Owner at The Breakfast Club, responded to this review

I'm happy our food impressed you, Daryl, especially the fresh juice and smoothies. However, it's disappointing to hear that our prices may be turning you away. We do our best to set prices that fairly reflect our quality while covering operations costs and still giving our guests the best deal possible. So, while we can't change our price, we will... More

The Breakfast Club is very popular with the locals and often has a line out the door. Meals are classic diner breakfasts with a huge list of eggs Benedict options.

The Breakfast Club is an old style diner and quite small, overall it was pretty good. It's a busy place with lines out the door! If you happen to be in the area stop by you won’t be disappointed, they have a great menu selection and friendly staff … that said it’s not worth a special trip from downtown Boston.

Went for breakfast here this morning....no wait as we were there around 8am....get here early as it's an old school diner. Sleek black, sliver & grey color scheme with an 80's vibe. The menu looks like a piece of notebook paper....but oversized & obviously not really notebook paper! Very friendly staff, quick service & delicious food. I had the nutella... More
