    Thumbs up Looking for small mom and pop/locals only type of restaurant recommendations

    Something along the lines of B55 but smaller and more locals type.

    Thank you in advance!

    Lindas Pancake/Pizza on Palm Beach Rd.
    The restaurant is owned by Linda's son and managed by him.

    It really was a mom and pop place, Linda died about 11 mos ago and her husband had died 18 mos earlier. It really is a good place and has a wonderful menu.

    Great breakfasts, crepe like pancakes, delicious pizzas, great lunches and dinners, full bar.
    Closed Sundays.

    maybe next time we are in massachusetts we will try it!!

    also too, HOT TAKE AWAY, next to Amadeus is a great take out for lunch.

    it is owned and managed by the same folks as Amadeus and is delicious.

    Boston,

    Check out my blog posts regarding local joints. There is a section for driving directions to them as well. Hollywood is temporarily closed or I would put that at the top of my list. However,

    Casa Vieja:

    and Sultan:

    are among my favorites. Some more on the blog, just surf through the local flavor posts.

    Bon dia.

    Dan knows all the great spots, Cafe Capri and Bavaria are also good.080 is also a very small local place that serves Dutch snacks ie sausauge ,fries etc, it's a cool little spot across the street from Gizelles department store.
