Kelly’s Diner

2001 Best Diner

There’s a difference between authentic and retro, and this no-nonsense Somerville treasure falls squarely in the former category. It has everything you come to a diner for—a 1953 Jerry O’Mahoney railway car with spacious booths and tabletop jukeboxes, serviceable food at fire-sale prices, and a waitstaff not afraid in these politically correct times to call you “sweetheart” or “hon.” Try the eggs Benedict on Sundays ($5.99).
