OK, my falafel question below brought back fantastic answers. I think the more specific the question, the better the responses on Chowhound. I'm consistently amazed.
We're now in search of good waffles. Pancakes and french toast even. Preferably in Cambridge. It's nice to walk to breakfast on an almost-warm weekend morning.
Not interested in a big brunch buffet. We've been to Henrietta's. Something more lowkey is preferable. Closest we've found is Beacon Diner near Central Square. Good vibe, good prices, mediocre food.
Any other ideas?
