McKenna’s is that family-run type of cafe that excels at great comfort food. No idea if it’s true, but all the front staff seemed so friendly & comfortable together that they must be related. We went on Sunday morning so of course a wait since it’s a very small place. But we sat at the counter pretty quickly and had our food extremely fast considering the crowd. Wonderful smoked turkey & mushroom omelette, crispy home-fries, great toast - breakfast is such an easy meal, yet so easy to mess up that it’s nice to see the great consistent quality they achieved. Worth the wait!

This is the second time we have had breakfast there and have enjoyed it each time.

We have had breakfast plates with combinations of eggs, ham, steak, sausages and bacon, as well as Mexican style food and wraps. We have not been disappointed.

This was the best kept secret from even the locals. Now its reputation has gotten out and extremely busy, but service and food quality hasn't suffered. I was excited to see that they added turkey sausage and turkey bacon to the menu; it was the Best turkey bacon evah!!!

Me and the husband was out working early hours today , we was hungry and wanted to get a nice meal. Stopped at Mc Kenna's Cafe in The Dorchester area. When you get their the first thing you must do is place your name and party on the waiting list. This is not a place you want to come to if you have a big part over 5. The less people the better only because of the wait time. They have a wonderful staff and I love this place.

McKenna's is about a 10-minute drive from the Doubletree Bayside Hotel (near the Kennedy Library) where we stayed. It was friendly, crowded (mostly with locals), offered excellent food and a huge selection, reasonable prices and excellent service. Could not have been better for breakfast. Only open for b'fast and lunch though. We went back 3 days in a row. Chatted with people at adjacent tables each time so good fun too.
