Last week, when I broke our apartment’s coffee pot (oops), we went to the hardware store to get a replacement pot and saw that there was a little diner nearby. There wasn’t enough time on that day to sit down and have a meal, but this week we came back and had breakfast.
Busy Bee Restaurant is a traditionally-styled diner with those turquoise-green booths and stools to sit at the counters. Located off the C Branch of the Green Line, on the St. Mary’s Street stop, Busy Bee was so delicious, and a perfect spot for a college student on a budget. I had eggs, toast and home fries, and it was that perfect, hardy diner food that you tend to crave. They had all the basic breakfast foods, and also featured a lunch menu, which looked just as good. I’m sure they would make a killer burger. And for a restaurant in the Boston area it was so, so inexpensive- $11 for two people. Not to mention, I love the colors and the general vibe in there. It’s super old school and I really enjoyed that about my experience eating there. It sort of reminded me of the diner from A Cinderella Story with Hillary Duff, but that might just be me. It was such a nice way to start off a Wednesday, and I will definitely be going back!
