Loyal Nine is an East Cambridge restaurant that focuses on regional ingredients. The various farm-to-table-ish small plates and coffee-shop-like atmosphere make this the perfect spot for the 20-somethings of Camberville to analyze their relationship troubles over plates of sourdough pancakes for breakfast. But if you come later in the day, you should be getting the excellent fried clams.
