Ball Square Café is a cozy and pet-friendly family restaurant located in the heart of Ball Square, Somerville, MA. Established on September 17, 2007, it has become a favorite spot for locals and travelers alike. 


Our guests are the #1 priority, and so we ensure a welcoming and friendly atmosphere that compliments a wide range of comfort food items available on our menu. We serve breakfast and lunch, and also provide catering services. Additionally, we offer Uber Eats for delivery, making it even more convenient for customers.


As part of your experience, you’ll enjoy freshly squeezed orange juice and premium coffee.  Our restaurant’s signature dish, a coconut macaroon French toast, is a must-try along with our delicious homemade corned beef hash that’s made using only the freshest ingredients. 


The restaurant operates on a first-come, first-served basis, and it is advised to have complete parties upon arrival, especially on weekends and holidays, as it is strictly enforced. The neighborhood provides metered parking and is just steps away from the new Ball Square T stop right on the Green Line. Bike lanes abound. We’re also in close proximity to Tufts University, and have become a favorite destination for many students along with their friends and family, who may be visiting the campus. It’s important to note we are also ADA accessible. 


We accept all major credit cards. Our experienced staff is knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated to making your visit a memorable one.


The restaurant offers gluten-free options for those with dietary restrictions.


Lastly, we couldn’t be more grateful for the support of our loyal guests, who continue to contribute to our success since we opened our doors. 


We’ll see you soon!

Owner, Ball Square Café

"Met the owner a few days before and he told us about his café. What he failed to tell us is that he was running on of the most incredible brunch establishments in Massachusetts! Everything was incredible fresh and the menu selections truly leave nothing to be desired. I highly recommend you stop by for your next brunch outing!"
