Best of Boston

2009 Best Breakfast, West

Johnny’s Luncheonette

Having eaten our way across the MetroWest in a futile search for a challenger, there’s little left to say except, once again, here’s Johnny’s. This four-time Best Of winner extends its run by virtue of its satisfyingly thick French toast and rib-sticking meals like pastrami skillet scrambles and Santa Fe burritos. Its sparkling-clean setup (surprisingly rare in breakfast joints) and ’50s-style cheeriness further ensure its rulership over the early-bird roost.
