Eddie's Breakfast & Lunch: Newton, MA

So, this place isn't a diner, it's a dinette. But Dharia insists that since we laid out our definitions, we can review dinettes now.

Anyway, we've been to Eddie's Breakfast & Lunch once before and wanted to get a quick breakfast today, so we headed over to give it another shot even though we weren't blown away the last time.

The dinette has been in the neighborhood for many years. There's weird office-style stools at the counter, and some pretty hideous wallpaper. Of course, there's also a cool banner on the kitchen hood that says, "My name's Eddie, your breakfast is ready!" Which is pretty neat.

The food, on the other hand, was not really that neat. We got water to drink, and it was served in red solo cups. Dharia ordered Eddie's Highway Special. At $3.75, it's a good deal for an egg and cheese on a bagel/muffin/toast with your choice of meat and a heap of home fries. The eggs were pretty fluffy and the sandwich was decent. My order wasn't so good. At first I asked for a Monte Cristo--but then the waitress asked me what kind of bread I wanted. Uh, isn't a Monte Cristo always served on French toast? The only options were white, wheat, rye, and English muffin. Odd. I immediately switched my order to The Ivan, which is roast beef, Swiss cheese, and fried onions. Got it on rye, and it was okay. Just okay. I felt kind of cheated for $6.

The people are pretty friendly at Eddie's, but I don't think I'll be going back.

Thank you for sharing. The egg sandwich looks delicious and you cannot beat that price! Sorry to hear you didn't like your meal. You should try Justine’s Table, what I like to consider the best restaurant in Newton, MA.
