Breakfast on 93

bgavin Jul 10, 2008 04:21 AM

I need to meet two business buddies next week at 8:00 am.
I am looking for an interesting place to have breakfast that is not a hotel, please.
It needs to be within, say, half of mile of I-93 between Malden and Andover.

I think I have done due diligence search here and even (gasp!) on Yelp, but can't dig out a breakfast solution.

Thanks in advance!

    Shawsheen Luncheonette in Andover.
    Take the route 133 exit and follow until you reach the intersection of route 28. The luncheonette is on the left with parking around the corner. It is a little more than half a mile but worth it.

      What a brilliant idea. I can't believe I didn't think of them. Thank you!

      It sounds like you have your answer already. However, if you decide you want something more in between the two locations I was going to recommend Aroma Cafe in Reading, MA or the Omelette Headquarters in Wakefield...

        Across the street form Aroma Cafe in Reading is my other fave breakfast joint Christopher's. Awesome breakfast choices with tons of daily specials. Aroma is a little overpriced for my breakfast tastes.

          Is Omelette HQ the little place in an old train station or near the train tracks? How is it? I've driven by it dozens of times and every time I say to myself I need to try it. Is there anything that sticks out as really good?
