I am David Barlam and this is my girlfriend Karolina. We bought the Mass Ave Diner in 2010 and quickly became an integral part of the diner/café experience in Central Square. Although we have made some cosmetics changes to the restaurant, the menu has remained consistent.

I do all the cooking and menu planning, while Karolina takes great care of our guests. We have been in the food business for many years and are proud to have built a large and dedicated following.

Lastly, a big part of our success is our staff, who have been with us since the start.

We are proud to be your go to neighborhood diner.

Old school diner in central square. Very friendly service. Good food. I really liked the home fries. Great coffee

Everyone that works here is a real character (in the best way possible!). Always friendly and welcoming, Mass Ave is a modern twist on classic diner dining. The breakfast sandwich is delicious and very affordable; Perfect for a quick bite!

Great “grilled cheese” with bacon. Good onion rings. Friendly owner! Don’t recommend the fries though.

Weirdest hours of any restaurant in town. The worst part is they don't even honor the hours posted! Arrived 1/2 hour before closing one day and they said they do not serve less than 1/2 hour before closing. Fine. Next day I arrived one hour before closing and they said sorry we're closed! Food isn't that good anyway. I'll never go again.

I ordered the Hungry Man's Special
to go (“had to” be at work). Atmosphere was cool, “old school” yet updated.
I would have loved to sit and chat with the friendly hostess and nice nurses having breakfast at the counter, also an eighties music mix was audible but not overwhelming. They have a few taps and I noticed Narragansett tall boys, to the uninitiated a light and refreshing lager, the beer the captain drank in Jaws. It would have complimented my breakfast nicely, I’ll have to swing by again.
