Looking for a good Breakfast spot near Medford!

I am looking for a nice Sunday morning breakfast place (nicer than a diner) somewhere along the 93 corridor between Medford and Burlington. I am trying to avoid anywhere with a long wait. Any suggestions??? Thanks for your help!

  1. Christophers in Reading is excellent......peak times you may wait however.

      1. Ball Square Cafe. Better than Sound Bites with much better service.

        1. Most places will have a wait on a Sunday...not many places nicer than a diner unless you want brunch, but you might consider:
          - Bickford's in Burlington
          - Lighthouse Cafe in Medford
          - Johnny D's in Meford
          - Renee's Cafe in Somerville

            I've had breakfast at that Bickford's: sat in the bar area, watched folks knocking back beers before noon on a weekday. Good plate of eggs and very pleasant service, though!


          2. Hugh O'Neill's in Malden serves a very respectable breakfast on weekends. They also have outdoor seating.

              I just checked the brunh menu at Hugh's - outstanding and very very reasonable. And, a diverse selection. Not many places serve homemade corned beef hash. Thanks.

                If you want to stay close to 93, than Hugh O'Neil's in Malden Square might be a bit out of the way. The Lighthouse Cafe in Medford Square would be a quick detour off the highway. I have heard the breakfast is pretty good there. Years ago it was a Pewter Pot, so that gives you a rough idea of what it's like if you remember Pewter Pots.

                  I would put Lighthouse in the "greasy spoon" category - which is fine if that's what you're in the mood for.

                  On the weekend when traffic is light the detour from 93 to Hugh O'Neill's is really not a big deal, in my experience.
