      I LOVE KEITH's!!!!

      They have the absolutely best breakfast in town. This is one I am hesitant to crow about because it is one of the best kept food secrets in Boston. Excellent fish hash, delicious biscuits, pancakes. Very creative menu with all of the expected and delicious standards that can, oddly enough, be hard to find or unsatisfying when found in Boston,

      Never been for lunch or dinner though.

        Omigawd, it sounds like the brunch place of my dreams...The big question is, how late do they serve on Sundays? Have you noticed that all the good brunch places around think we should actually eat before 2 on Sunday?

              The fish hash sounds good to me, too. I've seen something like that elsewhere -- Johnny's Luncheonette in Newton Center and Cambridge used to serve up a smoked salmon hash, I think, although it's not listed on the on-line menu that I found.

                Damn, because that sounds great...also sounds like another place I should add to my late-brunch repetoire!

                  Yep, I'd recommend Johnny's. The first location is next to the Walgreen's in Newton Center, and they opened another one about three years ago on the outskirts of Harvard Square (toward Central Square on Mass. Ave. -- it's at the basement level of a squat, ugly cement building).

                  Overall, it's a semi-upscale twist on "retro 50's diner-meets-Jewish deli." They have some innovative menu items, including some attempts at healthy fare, and I generally have a hard time deciding what to eat there. The turkey-apple sausages are a bit dry, but they're tasty anyway.

                  They're open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and I think they're open relatively late), but breakfast is definitely the popular choice.

                  Food quality is pretty good, and I think it's non-smoking, which is unusual for a diner.

                  I've linked the only on-line menu that I could find. I don't know how up-to-date it is or isn't.
