Breakfast at Night...

Hey does anybody know where I can get super delicious breakfast food at dinner time in Boston? It can be anything from a greasy spoon to high end...it doesn't matter!

    We like Trident Booksellers cafe for breakfast at night or anytime.

    I've done a couple of features on them- One was for Breakfast all day and the other was as a great place to meet someone.( as is set up a meeting convenient and comfortable for both of you.)

      Zaftig's in Coolidge Corner serves great breakfast all day long!

        I haven't been in quite a while, but Soundbites in Somerville was advertising all-day breakfast several months back.

        The Friendly Toast is a great suggestion.

            How late is Mike's open? I didn't think they served dinner. The Victoria Diner on Mass Ave. does, also Zoe's close to Harvard Sq. 50's Diner in Dedham and the Deluxe Town Diner in Watertown. Also, the place on Comm Ave at Packard's Corner whose name i can never remember, across from the Shaw's.

              That's Cookin' Cafe, I believe. And you're right about Mike's - they close at 3, so not really much use at "dinner time."

                Oops, you are correct. Mike's serves breakfast all day......but their "day" ends at 3PM.

                  Yes, the place at Packard's Corner is Cookin' Cafe. I do not recommend it.

                    I don't think it's that bad for omelettes and club sandwiches w/ fries. Haven't been in a while tho.

                      It's not terrible if you're already in the neighborhood, though I find the atmosphere oddly sterile and depressing. But I wouldn't want anybody to go out of their way to go there just because they serve breakfast all day.

                  I third the Friendly Toast, but the Victoria Diner is AWFUL in my experience! One of the most depressing meals I have had in Boston. Was I just unlucky?

                  The Trident Cafe on Newbury St. also has decent breakfast food at all hours.

                    I've only been a couple times but it was good and I know MC has had good luck there. It's been a while for me tho.

                Friendly Toast - and you can get a delicious cold beer to accompany your home fries and what not..

                  Second. The Friendly Toast is a divisive place -- it's the sort of restaurant where you're on its wavelength or you're not -- but it's by far the best option around for dinner breakfast.
