We have had brunch and lunch here a number of times on visits to our old home city, and Boffins generally comes through well. The food is well prepared, interesting, and tasty. Both the indoor, Arts and Crafts restaurant, and the outdoor, chunky-furniture patio are appealing. Prices are reasonable. It's a nice alternative to the other options on the University... More

The atmosphere at Boffins is nice and relaxed, and they have some good, unique food options (not many), but the service is more often than not very poor. Try to sit at Chandra's tables and you'll be okay. Overall service quality took a sharp decline about three years ago (give or take a year). Hopefully, they'll get someone to shape... More

I especially love the atmosphere. Reserve one of the two side rooms for a more intimate gathering. Great appetizers, soups, salads and lunch dishes!
