Best of Boston
1999 Best Diner
The Rosebud Diner
While the rest of Davis Square submits to a yuppified takeover (Coming Soon! Starbucks!), the Rosebud is one of the last holdouts of old-time Somerville. Okay, the bloody brawls are a thing of the past (that’s a good thing). But the food is still hearty, the atmosphere classic, and the waitresses downright motherly.
381 Summer St., Davis Square, Somerville, 617-666-6015,
