This family owned restaurant in Watertown Square is my go to spot when my car is next door at Sullivan Tires. The food is excellent and the staff is incredibly friendly and efficient. Doesn't matter who's serving you, all the servers are willing to get you anything you want. I love that they interact so nicely with all customers--especially the... More

Worth the wait in line for 30 minutes. Allowed us to have coffee in real mugs while in line. Nice hospitality there! Breakfast was delicious and served quickly despite being packed. Well done by the staff. And priced reasonably.

I love the diner at 11 North Beacon. I've had a few lunches at the diner but mostly breakfast. It's a coat, busy diner with delicious options. The omelettes and pancakes will always make you come back. The delightful outdoor dining area is a serene oasis in busy Watertown Square.

Good fun, good food and something for everyone in our group of six. Food was plentiful but not too much, bottomless coffee and friendly service. Very popular but didn't have to wait long for a table. Recommend it absolutely.

There wasnt a table available when we got there, but the lady that took care of us offered us coffee while we waited. She had me at coffee! lol. I had The Diner. 2 eggs, 3 pieces of meat (I chose 2 bacon 2 sausage) fried potatoes and 2 pancakes. Pancakes weren't the best but everything else was very good.... More

Love the breakfasts here. The quiet outdoor dining area is a perfect setting in the middle of busy Watretown Square. Super enjoy the pumpkin pancakes

My family and I dine here weekly. It is always operated efficiently and serves excellent food. The staff is very friendly. Only downside is that they are often on a wait and there really is no place to wait. I've never had a bad meal here, but I'm mostly a breakfast person. The diner special is a good value. I... More

We had a party of 10 for breakfast on Mother's day Sunday, and the hostess was spectacular! She was sweet, funny and really cared about getting everybody seated in an orderly fashion, and as quickly as possible. The food was fantastic! Everybody loved everything they got, from omelettes to pancakes. And the servers were so good-nice, and quick, and on... More

We ate at the diner this morning and really enjoyed it. It was family friendly and the servers actually seemed happy to have our baby in the restaurant. The locals were known by name. Food was good with a few healthy options; we really liked the French toast and bacon. Decor was cute and time period-esque.

I just ate today's breakfast special: Apple and Bacon Omelet with Caramelized Onions and Cheddar Cheese. I ordered mine with egg whites and no potatoes or bread. That being said, D@NB makes THE best hash browns. Their Scali bread is a staple of many a diet. Because I skipped the carbs, I felt I could go for a muffin. Lisa's... More
