Every weekend, groups of people can be seen lining the streets surrounding Johnny’s Luncheonette in Newton Center. Serving breakfast all day, and some lunch and dinner offerings, Johnny’s is a regular stop for brunch. They have service down to a science and work hard to feed as many hungry customers as possible. My group of five only had to wait for around thirty minutes on a Sunday around eleven because they have good turnover.
I ordered an omelette with cheddar and spinach and a side of sweet potato fries. It was the epitome of comfort food and perfect for a lazy fall day. The omelette was cooked well, edges crispy from being browned with butter in a skillet. But, the star of the show were the sweet potato fries. Brought with a mustard dipping sauce they were sweet companions to the savory omelette and are a must order! My meal totaled $10.50, but would have been much cheaper since the omelette toppings and fries were add ons. Johnny’s is a great local joint, but don’t visit with too big of a group. Make sure to keep it under 6 people!
