Great Boston Breakfast 3/19/2009

Mike's has a great breakfast and the best prices I have seen. Very authentic when you think of a Diner! Wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. Small place but they are very good at getting people in and out. An awesome place to go if you're looking for ""Boston"" type places. Great location! Pros: Great Food, Great Price, Authentic Cons: Waiting time more

Bad customer service, Hair in Food 5/4/2008

Waiting for a table wasn't too bad. We were seated within 20 minutes. Service was horrible. We had a waitor who rushed our orders. He didn't even ask for our drink choices. Feeling pressured to order i chose a grilled chicken wrap. Food came pretty quickly but not that great. My grilled chicken sandwich was supposed to include coleslaw and a pickle, but for some unkown reason came with only the wrap. What was worse was that I found a hair in my chicken wrap. At that moment I was disgusted and knew that I wouldn't return. Our original waitor hadn't come back after delivering our food, so we consulted another waitor. He was younger and much more polite and calm. He actually was nice enough to not include the price of the chicken wrap. Overall experience.... horrible! Pros: Good soda Cons: Service, Food more

great breakfast selection 7/15/2007

Just went to breakfast with my family. We were pleased to see actual omelette pans on the stove as we walked in, so all three of us ordered omelettes: one Mexican omelette with chili and cheddar cheese; one omelette with lox, onion and tomato; and one omelet with mushroom and swiss cheese. The omelettes were good, but in all cases the eggs were cooked too dry. Those of us with the chili or the cheese were O.K. but the tomato was almost missing in the second omelette so some swiss cheese was shared to help provide moisture. The potatoes were absolutely fabulous, and the grits were perfect. And true the the menu, the coffee was truly bottomless. A very good meal that could have been perfect with a few more tomatoes and a bit less time on the stove. Next time, will ask for the eggs to be moist and see whether it works! more

Unsanitary 3/10/2007

While wating for a table at Mike's I noticed multiple waitresses eating while working (one licked her fingers), coughing and sneezing into their hands, and not washing their hands. I work in a restaurant and eat out frequently. These unsanitary activities were so overt and numerous in a 5 minute period that we walked out before even sitting down to eat. Disgusting. Cons: Unsanitary more

Best breakfast in boston 11/23/2006

If you can get there early, or deal with the waits, mike's is the best diner in the city! also quite cheap! Pros: Food, service Cons: location, crowds more

A real breakfast dinner around the corner 9/6/2006

Breakfast is an important meal and my wife and I love to have it outside. Today was our first visit to Mike's diner. We really enjoyed it. Pros: Diner, Hearty breakfast Cons: Very large portions more

Mike's Diner = A way of life... 3/28/2006

With items such as the Emergency Room, with pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, and toast all combined into one glorious amalgam, it is no wonder that the line at Mike's continually spills out the door and onto the street. This is the place to be if you want to rub shoulders with local students, doctors, policemen, and factory workers, each enjoying this oh-so-healthy cuisine of grease--made exactly how your grandmother used to make it for you. more

Average food 12/10/2005

The food is fine, if you like store-bought bread and jelly from packets. Actually, the food is good, the portions are huge and the service is excellent for a small, crowded, very busy diner. If they had homemade breads and preserves, it would truly be something to rave about. After breakfast at Mike's, walk about two blocks down to Flour Bakery/Cafe for out-of-this-world baked goods and another cup of coffee. For either one, get there early!! Pros: Huge portions, Inexpensive, Tasty food Cons: Long wait, Very crowded more

Yummy-YUM,YUM!! 2/7/2003

I've been going to Mike's for some time now. I usually go every Sunday. This place is the best breakfast place in town! The food is terrific; fills you up just right. The service is good too. I must say Kudos to the waitresses. They are very friendly and courteous and the best. If your served by Lucy, you are very fortunate. Pros: quick service, cheap prices, great service more

No question of safety 11/4/2002

We had early brunch at Mike's on a recent Sunday, and lucky we came early. This is apparently THE hang out for the Boston police, so definitely safe. Two of us had waffles- excellent. Our friend had a plate that was overflowing with Corned beef hash, fried potatoes, English muffin and eggs. If size of portion matters- this is the place. The three of us ate well for $25, including tip. No fruit slection other than juice. The strawberries on the waffles are the canned variety. Pros: Hearty food, price, location Cons: Cramped seating, Long lines at times, No fruit more

10 8/9/2002

I've been a faithful diner at Mike's for a few years now. They make absolutely the best omelets and pancakes in Boston. The omelets are huge and fluffy and stuffed with whatever you have ordered (the Manny's omelet, with turkey, swiss and bacon is my favorite). The pancakes are huge and delicious. The apple/walnut pancakes are stuffed with lots of chopped apples and walnuts. Beware of the Citysearch listings, though. Mike's was open for dinner briefly, but they only do breakfast and lunch is only M-F. On weekends, it's breakfast food only, through closing. But, it's packed anyhow. Pros: Huge portions, Delicious Food, Great oldies music Cons: Long lines on Weekend more
