4. Boulevard Diner, Worcester, MA

Housed in an old diner car, Boulevard Diner is open around the clock. Their home fries are a customer favorite. Be sure to check out their Italian Breakfast with a hot cup of coffee. It’s said to be the best way to start your day.

5. The Little Depot Diner, Peabody, MA

Housed inside an old (1929) lunch car that has just 15 stools, the Little Depot Diner features Belgian waffles that are crisp on the outside and light and fluffy inside. In addition, they have just about any breakfast combination you can imagine—and they serve them from open to close every day but Wednesday. Bring cash, because they don’t accept debit or credit cards.

6. The Galley Diner, South Boston, MA

Food Network star Anthony Bourdain hailed the corned beef hash and eggs at the Galley Diner as “a perfect example” of what the meal should be. In addition to breakfast they serve sandwiches, chili, meatloaf, liver and onions, franks and beans and more. You won’t go hungry when you eat here.

8. Artcliff Diner, Vineyard Haven, MA

Bright and kitschy in design, Artcliff Diner adheres to a “farm to table” concept with all the meals they serve. They’ve won awards for their breakfast and brunch. Expect a wait in the warm weather months.

9. Miss Worcester Diner, Worcester, MA

Housed in a lunch car built back in 1948, the Miss Worcester Diner features nostalgia and good food. Open every day but Thursday, they serve breakfast all day at their five booths and 14 stools at the counter. The hash and eggs are a specialty.
