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,
