From the service to the food this place nails it all. The orange juice was fantastic and the French toast is super delicious. Definitely coming back!
Best gluten free pancakes in Somerville. All the rest of the food is great too. I'm pretty sensitive and can eat here, Staff is knowledgeable about allergies. Very calm friendly atmosphere for breakfast or brunch.

Everything about this place is a treat. The menu is unique, the food is a amazing, and even the décor makes you feel special. The menu has lots of familiar items, but each item is done with a delicious twist that I've not seen anywhere else. When I visit the area again, I will definitely being having another meal at the Ball Square Cafe.

Service was great. Not super busy on a Saturday around lunch time, we got sat within 5 min with a party of 6. I had an omelet and wasn't able to eat more than a third because of the large portion size. Others in the group really loved the French toast. Fried mashed potatoes were delicious and unique. Service was prompt and attentive.

We decided to go for breakfast on a Saturday. It was packed which is always a good sign. We were seated immediately which was surprising.Service was pretty fast for how packed it was. Food came out quickly. Great portions, Great tasting, Great service and Great Variety!Give yourself sometime for parking. There’s meter parking 🅿️ on the street. Do not go when you’re starving and have to look for parking (worse combination). Also the meter doesn’t take cards only quarters.But overall highly recommended place for GREAT BREAKFAST!

A very nice uber driver called Amin recommended this place as I was just on my way to Assembly Row. I thought ok, lets do it. I prefer and like local. A beautifully quirky and clean establishment. Playing smooth jazz (paul hardcastle included- perfect!), lovely friendly and quick service, complete with a yummy breakfast bagel sandwich. I wish I had room for more! I may sneak in a 2nd visit before I fly home. Need to try the pancakes. I super recommend this place. Just lovely!

5-Star rated only because I can't give them 6 stars. Top to bottom, for years, consistently fantastic food, staff, people, and atmosphere. It's so good, it'll make you want to bus your own table.

Amazing big breakfast portions!

I definitely had to stop by here while in town. Always a hit! Great choices for breakfast and good portions. Tasty! 😋
I've been going to Victor's Deli for OMG like 30+ year's, & When they closed down I was devastated. Because nothing competed to Victor's, & Then Ball Sq Cafewas born & I'm a 100% Total fan. The food's AMAZING, & You can tell that it's top of the line ingredients. & It tasted better then Victor's food which I thought I would never say, & This family that was Victor's & Now Ball Sq Cafe are a staple of what Somerville is to all the residents. Family, Friends & Caring about our community, you go in just one time. & You will be part of this incredible family,God-Bless.

Stopped in for a little brunch with my partner earlier today and had a great experience. Service was great and quick, and the food tasted great and was presented really well. Stop in and enjoy the amazing atmosphere!
I haven’t even eaten yet but I have to say that the service already made me an every Sunday member. The manager welcomed my party of 9 outside with cold cups of water as we waited for a table. The server is so welcoming and he has the greatest attitude I’ve experienced in a restaurant. Thank you! Absolutely amazing!!!
Jonathan G.
Delicious breakfast, large portions, one of the better corn beef has breakfasts I've had.

Annie B.
Brunch was amazing, food was geat. The staff is welcoming, great atmosphere... only thing is when you get inside the door, it's a bit confusing as there is no specific host. You can sit whenever you see a clean table.

Delicious! Everything is fresh and tasty with a friendly staff. Service is prompt. Portions are ample. Omelettes and egg dishes are creative and the French Toast creations are mouthwatering. Great coffee too! Recent expansion offers plenty of seating with outdoor options as well.

Very cute cafe that’s been nicely redone. We had delicious breakfast food!
Victor R.
By far one of the best breakfast restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of dining at. I wish I could bring this establishment home with me.

This was my first visit to Ball Square Cafe. I treated myself a Pre- Birthday breakfast. Food was very good. I didn't really like the veggie sausage. Not saying they were bad, they just were not very tasteful to me. I really like the fresh squeezed glass of orange juice. Best part about it is that my brother works there and he paid for my meal, which was very thoughtful. Thank you again, Big Bro.

Todd had the best customer service!! French toast was amazing and the Buttermilk pancakes was Delicious 😋.... Overall great breakfast spot.


The perfect pancakes

They make simply the best breakfast in this little corner of Somerville. Plates piled high with pancakes, french toast under mountains of fruit and syrup

Ball Square Cafe in the Boston Herald

Toast of town: Chefs Mike Moccia, and Omar Djebbouri serve up caramelized strawberry French toast.

Sunday Brunch at Ball Square Café

If you can find a restaurant that does full justice to it, you just have to share the news with everyone. Ball Square Café fits the bill.
