Leo's Place Diner in the Harvard Square Section of Cambridge Has Closed

Another restaurant has closed in Cambridge's Harvard Square, and this one had been around for many decades.

According to one of our readers, Leo's Place Diner on JFK Street is shuttered, with a check on the restaurant's Facebook page confirming this (it appears that its last day in operation was Sunday). A specific reason for its closure was not given.

Leo's Place Diner offered classic diner fare such as French toast, pancakes, tuna melts, burgers, hot dogs, pork chops, and steak kababs. The eatery first opened its doors in 1949.

Harvard Square has seen several restaurants close over the past several months, including Tommy Doyle's, UpStairs on the Square, Tamarind Bay, and Bertucci's. A number of other restaurants in Cambridge have closed as well recently, include Chez Henri and Addis Red Sea (both of which were located between Porter Square and Harvard Square).

The address for this now-closed dining spot in Harvard Square was: Leo's Place Diner, 35 JFK Street, Cambridge MA, 02138.
