        Is that the 50's dinner off rte 1 on the road, great lunch place as well, nothing fancy just good

        50's Diner
        900 Providence Hwy, Dedham, MA 02026

          The 50's diner is a good idea. Located as you enter legacy place on the right before whole foods.

        2. 50's diner' is very good but cash only and long lines on weekends.

          If Westwood is an option Vellos on route 109 can't be beat.

            I'm sorry, but neither 50's diner nor Vello's is anything special. They both serve the same Sysco crap that every other breakfast joint out here in the burbs serves. Sorry to be a naysayer, but after moving to Holliston 2 years ago, I've driven all over the place looking for anything that comes even close to Soundbites in Somerville, Deluxe Town Diner in Watertown, or The Friendly Toast in Kendall. It doesn't exist out here.

            I'd love to steer you toward something fresh, tasty and homemade, but the closest I can get you is Gourmet Decisions in Natick or Deluxe Station Diner in Newton. Zaftigs is hit and miss and overpriced, but still better than either the 50s Diner or Vellos. True, none of the three are particularly close to Dedham, Norwood, or Walpole. But, honestly, you'd be better served rolling the dice and trying someplace else altogether than settling for these places.
