At Steve’s Kitchen, breakfast is served all day, every day. The small Greek diner, tucked away in the heart of Allston, is easily overlooked, but it shouldn’t be. The inside is cozy, with nine small wooden tables and five stools lining the counter. The clanking of dishes and sizzling from the stove create an atmosphere of being at home — or perhaps in Steve’s kitchen.

The menu has all the breakfast necessities. Omelets, served with toast and home fries ($4.25 to $4.95), are light, with enough cheese and the right proportion of meat (bacon, ham, or Greek sausage). The home fries are cut into large pieces and cooked until moist, tasty, and golden brown. For $4.25, three giant slices of challah French toast make a sweet bargain. Breakfast specials offer a combination of one, two, or three eggs with well-cooked ham, crispy bacon, sausage, or gyros, served with toast, home fries, and coffee or tea for under $5. Wash it all down with a glass of juice or milk (both $1.10).

Of course, Steve’s Kitchen has more to offer than just breakfast, including hamburgers, sandwiches, and numerous dinner plates. But why order a burger when you can have breakfast for dinner?

Steve’s Kitchen, located at 120 Harvard Avenue, in Allston, is open Monday through Saturday, from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Call (617) 254-9457.
