The construction of the Saugus train station in 1888 marked the beginning of the restaurant's story. The unusual term "Saugus" is Narragansut Indian, meaning a sandy spit of land, and was named after Henry M. Newhall's birthplace in Massachusetts, as per SCV history.

It was originally known as the Saugus Eating House and was part of the Saugus train station. The current name, Saugus Cafe, was adopted in 1899. The current structure was constructed in 1952 by the new owner, who completely rebuilt it from the scratch. It relocated to its current location in 1905 and was expanded and remodeled in 1925.
