Leo's Place Diner Is Reopening in Waltham

A restaurant that closed in Cambridge after being in business for many years is reopening in Waltham.

According to a picture that was posted on Twitter, Leo's Place Diner is planning to open in the space on Main Street where In a Pickle had been before moving to nearby Moody Street in the spring of 2013. Leo's Place had been located on JFK Street in Harvard Square, but it shuttered around the end of 2013 after losing its lease. The diner was known for its breakfasts as well as classic diner fare, with burgers, hot dogs, pork chops, and much more on its menu. An article in Cambridge Day says that Leo's had been located in its JFK Street location for 32 years, though another post in Wicked Local Cambridge mentions that the original owner first opened the diner back in 1949.

It is not known exactly when Leo's Place Diner will open in Waltham.

[October 14 update: Leo's Place Diner has not yet moved into its new home in Waltham yet, but it appears to be close to opening, as a poster on Twitter has put up a picture of a sign out front saying that the eatery is now looking to hire workers.]

[December 9 update: According to one of our readers (and confirmed by the restaurant's Facebook page), Leo's Place Diner is now open in its new home in Waltham.]

The address for the new location of Leo's Place Diner is 655 Main Street, Waltham, MA, 02451.
