Our History
Boston Gothic

McKenna's cafe was opened in Dorchester in 1999 by Kathy and Bernie Goodman longtime residents of the Savin Hill neighborhood. The restaurant was later acquired by local residents who have continued to run the establishment with the same sense of pride, long standing tradition, friendly service and excellent food.  McKenna's Cafe quickly became a popular place for locals and their friends to gather and eat delicious hearty home-style cooked meals. The staff personifies the ideals of a family run business knowing everyone who walks through the door- whether growing up on the same block or becoming friends as customers of the cafe.  This really is a place where 'everyone' knows your name. 

McKenna's Cafe serves breakfast and lunch throughout the day. Enjoy an extensive menu including an assortment of fresh omelets, egg creations, healthy selections, salads, sandwiches, soups, pastries, coffees, teas and so much more! Breakfast is served all day long. There is something for everyone at McKenna's Cafe and we look forward to serving you.
