Victor's Diner - Watertown ?

Anyone have an impression of Victor's? Driven by a few times and always forget about it as a possibility. Out of sight....

There seems to be a line on weekends and a big crowd. Not that that is a sign of quality - often just means the right mix of price/quantity/quality.

After two years here, we're still on the hunt for a great breakfast with a neighborhood vibe. Not brunch (I love brunch, don't get me wrong) - but we're looking for a pure pre-10am scene - good food, good coffee.

For those of you who know SF - where's the Miss Millie's, Ella's, Chloe's or hell, Boogaloo, equivalent. Or the Philly-style Sabrina's (how I dream of the challah french toast) or Blue in Green.

Closest we've found is Centre St. Cafe in JP. Sorrella's was okay, and a step above Sound Bites which was not worth the wait, imho. For a straightup breakfast diner, half-empty Zoe's on Mass Ave, near Harvard Sq, below Dolphin Seafood, is actually pretty good. Pleasantly surprised. We choose that over Talk of the Town, Rosebud, Sound Bites, etc.

But any thoughts on Victor's or any new spots?
