We visited Babico's for lunch and were pleasantly surprised with this spot we had noticed before but never went in. It offers a nice clean diner ambience and breakfast all day if you want that. There are plenty of nice choices on the menu and the service is fast and friendly too. You feel like you just belong there and... More

My son and I usually go for breakfast, which is hot and fast. My son loves the pancakes, and I go for the two egg combo. Lunch food is good to. The service is phenomenal. Staff is always happy & friendly. It's a pleasure to eat there. Bring cash...No credit cards

Babico's is your basic neighborhood good eating place; lots of standard, well-prepared favorites all day. Great French toast and egg dishes along with wonderful sandwiches and burgers.

If you crave the nostalgia of a 50's diner, this is the place. RIght down to the pink and turquoise motif and the period like neon signs. WIth a dozen or so stools at the counter and booths along the wall you might expect the Fonz to stroll in at any time. About the only thing missing are the individual... More

I wish they accepted credit cards, but otherwise I've been to Babico's with friends many times and never been disappointed. Coffee is good, sandwiches are good, and no one ever gives you trouble about staying long after your meal is over.

This diner serves a Sunday brunch without the crowds so service was great. Omelettes were very good although we would prefer a more natural bread on the side without the butter already on it. We did not order pancakes or waffles since the "maple syrup" is really flavored Aunt Jemima's sugary syrup.

Went to Maynard on a Sunday morning looking for a spot to have breakfast. A sign pointed us to Babico's, which is down a path off the street near the public parking lot. We walked in and we knew it was the right place for what we wanted - diner feel, busy, cheesy interior. Menu had all the classic diner... More

Babico's is not haute cuisine. It's hearty diner fare served with a smile. Lots of well-prepared egg dishes including wonderful omelets. Great sandwiches and burgers. Can be crowded on Sundays, but tables empty fairly quickly.
