Thornton's Restaurant & Cafe is an adorable diner-type restaurant on Huntington Ave (right behind the Pru). On any given weekend it's tables are full and a line has formed out the door with eager patrons ready to chow down. In typical diner fashion, the menu is large and offers a full range of brunch delights from egg creations, to French toast, and everything in between. The food quality is higher than the average diner, which keeps the food tasting fresh and delicious. They are also extremely accommodating if you want to add/subtract/ change something on the menu to suit your liking. We have frequented Thorton's many times and have yet to have a bad meal or anything that doesn't taste good, so it's fair to say that whatever you pick from their menu will be yummy! The atmosphere is bright from the full length windows that line the restaurant and super casual. The portion sizes are appropriately large and the prices are good (nearly everything is under $10).
