Places like the Rainforest Cafe and Planet Hollywood did everything they could to ruin themed restaurants for an entire generation. But Little Dipper, a space-themed diner in Jamaica Plain, is fighting back. Model rockets hang from the ceiling and entrees have names like “Ground Control” and “Saturn Stack.” But unlike the Hard Rock Cafe, this place put some effort into the food instead of blowing the entire budget on a jumpsuit Elvis once threw up on. We like to come for brunch and order the Betty Page, which is an eggs benedict that swaps out the english muffin for potatoes. But if you come for lunch or dinner, their burgers are very solid too.
