great breakfast spot

Another trendy little place on Washington St. near our hotel. Had breakfast there both days. Great service, excellent coffee (had the French Roast one day and Breakfast Blend the next), super breakfast sandwiches and fresh pastries.

Amazing mochas! I recommend trying out all the different drinks, though, as all of them are good. Make this place a must go!

I was visiting Boston and I went for a walk around the commons early in the morning. On the way back I stopped at this coffee place for a scone and coffee. Scone was fine but the coffee, besides not being too tasty, was the most lukewarm one I ever had. I am not sure if the coffee machine was... More

We had a quick breakfast here. It was a typical coffee shop, nothing special, although it was convenient for the Hyatt Regency.

The title says it all. Very convenient and good value. We were on room only at the Hyatt so this worked well.

We were told to go here for a quick breakfast by the concierge but it was very busy and they have very little seating.

The coffee was good and strong but the food was not great. My daughter's b-fast sandwich was good but the oatmeal my son and husband got was basically raw. If they had put a little effort into it by either heating the water hotter or microwaving the oatmeal for 1 min, it would have been edible but the way they... More

We stopped here to pick up breakfast on the way to a guided tour in the morning and it was a train wreck. Ordered 2 breakfast sandwiches and drinks, waited at least 15 minutes along with 5 others for the food to come up. People who ordered after us started getting food so as I was about to ask if...

The employees were friendly, however a simple order for two sandwiches took well over 30 min to prepare. When stopping in for a quick bite at a cafe I would not expect such a long wait. Needless to say a disappointment and I would not come back.
