This is a cute little coffee house, but there tends to be quite a wait to order. Often times when I go they can be out of items on the menu. Luckily, their offerings are vast and there is something else to try. Not discounted prices, but for lunch they are not bad.

I stayed here for a couple hours to grab some breakfast and recharge my devices (as well as my legs) while in transit to Europe. The bagels are quite nice and the coffee (Mocha latte), while hot is enjoyable. Definitely not the best I've tasted but better than average. Decently priced, but no music in the cafe which feels odd... More

We went here right before our Boston Ballet performance of Cinderella. We got some sandwiches and there soup. Food was pretty good, a little expensive but decent food and quick service. They were very busy so the tables, breakfast bar and seating area were not very clean.

A nice place to go if your hotel charges obscene amounts for breakfast... The coffee and pastries were good and (although I didn't gave any) the panini and other savoury items looked nice too

This deli has everything. Although I had a Panini, the homemade quiche looked fantastic. There were also homemade soups to choose from. My Panini was piled high with thick slices of ham and had a wonderful sauce. It was big enough for 2 to share. It came with a side of salad. I'll try quiche the next time or maybe... More

Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Coffee and tea were delicious as was the salad and sweet products. Would be nice if salad was prepared to order so that substitutions could be made to suit the customer.

Nice place, nice people around and good food. I always had good time ever there, having a coffee and surfing on their internet. Looking forward to go back.
