On the advice of a local Bostonian, visited Billy's for a mid-week breakfast and it was good enough for a return trip later that week!

Cozy little establishment where you view the menu behind the counter and when you're ready you place it with friendly staff who take care of you very well. I had a breakfast sandwich - egg, cheese and bacon on a bagel, and it was very good. Bagel toasted, plenty of crispy bacon, egg cooked perfectly and the right amount of cheese. When I was at the counter, I spied an appealing looking Blueberry Muffin and when I ordered it, I was asked if I wanted it grilled. As a Mid-Westerner, never heard of that so went with it and wow, great choice. It was cut in half, warmed and had a little butter melted on it when they brought it to the table. Added a coffee and the total bill was very palatable, which was an added bonus.

Both the sandwich and the bagel were so good, I ordered the exact some thing on the return trip later in the week and both choices were very good again. :-)

Good, inexpensive breakfast and lunch place. Nice Greek family behind the counter. Lots of friendly banter with the regulars. Eat with confidence.

It was wonderful experience to have breakfast here several times.
The Omelette with bacon was the best one that I've ever eaten.
Various kinds of people had breakfast. The host was super kind and nice.
Yes, food was excellent. But I miss that atmosphere more.

Billy's is a wonderful place to pick up a quick, solid sub at lunch. Nothing fancy or over the top here but the food is consistent and the service is fast.

The food was perfect for a hangover. It came quickly and was satisfying. The portions were a good size but the pricing was a little expensive. The atmosphere is one of a local hole in the wall spot.
