Boston Restaurant Blog -- May, 2009

Last weekend we took a drive down to Holbrook for a late breakfast at a place called Leggos in the center of town. And while there was nothing earth-shattering about the place, we were impressed overall by the food, prices, and friendliness of the service.
Leggos has been around for about a year or so, and is one of a few options in Holbrook for breakfast, including Smith's Restaurant, which is just down the road. Simple and homey with a bright yellow sign above the front door, Leggos is similar to Smith's in the fact that it is an independent little spot that is known mostly to locals and few others. The inside of Leggos is pretty straightforward, with some of the handful of tables lined up along the windows, affording a pleasant, leafy view outside. There is also an outdoor patio area for warmer days (which Sunday was definitely not).
Our server seemed as if she might also be one of the folks in charge of the place, and she was both efficient and friendly, checking back with us a few times to make sure everything was ok. And it was all indeed ok, as the corned beef hash omelet was hearty without being too greasy, and the cranberry waffles had a nice tart aftertaste from the berries. The home fries were a bit limp and not seasoned all that much, but they, too, weren't overly greasy and were tasty enough. Coffee was all right, though not up to some of the best I've tried around Boston for breakfast (Martin's Coffee Shop in Brookline comes to mind in that category).
I was pretty happy overall with Leggos, especially since it seems to be one of those friendly neighborhood places that locals return to again and again. I'd like to get back there for lunch soon (and hopefully make use of the outdoor patio). If I do, I'll definitely report back on it.
For those who want the address for Leggos, here it is: Leggos, 120 North Franklin Street (Route 37), Holbrook, MA 02343. The phone number is (781) 961-2475.
Went back to Leggos over the weekend. It was really good overall, with the rich and flavorful apple-cinnamon crepe being one of the highlights. The home fries seemed better this time, by the way, as they were cooked a little better and had more taste. I can't wait to get there for lunch, as there is a lot I want to try on their lunch menu.

We tried Leggos, group of 9 friends,on easter sunday. Simply loved it. The outdoor patio was for sure one of the strong attractions 'till the food arrive to the table which took around 5 minutes. The breakfast burrito and the fruit cup was piece of heaven. The steak tips did not fall behind it at all. Can't wait to go back this weekend.
