Great cafe for breakfast with very good coffee (lattes). We ate here for 2 days rather than in the hotel restaurant. Fresh ingredients, reasonable portion size (not too small or over the top). Naturally friendly staff.

This is a real neighborhood place, with staff who know how to welcome and treat their customers, best blueberry muffins for blocks, and a complete breakfast menu that leaves nothing to be desired. They do lunch and dinner too if you are so inclines but I love it for the muffins and coffee in the morning. Go there--Starbucks pales by... More

The service is surly. The place is filthy with food all over the floor. Table also hadn't been cleaned after previous diner. Also, why do I have to get up half way through my food to collect my beverage? When you came over you could have brought the damn drink with you.

When I'm in the area I usually go to Panificio Bistro & Bakery on Charles Street not far from the T-Station, and get an excellent espresso, possibly the best around, for half the price, in a real Italian cafe atmosphere, peaceful, rustic furniture, I love sitting at the antique country table there, with friendly and engaging staff members. There is... More

We ordered a sandwich. Twenty minutes later we asked about our order. They told us they had misplaced the order. Ten to fifteen minutes later we got the sandwich. To their credit, they did give us one free cookie.

Had a very pleasant breakfast here. Good food and reasonable price. The service was very good. Nice way to start a walk up Charles Styreet and ending at the Boston Commons.

We did not eat here, although to be fair, it was highly recommended. Our family walked in to the bustling breakfast scene. The staff kept walking around us, not seating us or even saying good morning. Finally I asked the woman at the register if we were to seat ourselves, or not. She barked, "NO!" So we stood there another... More

Had lunch on a Saturday afternoon, Lobster roll was horrible and looked like the lobster had been squeezed out of a tube onto the bun, This is Boston ,not Oklahoma City. Breakfast burrito consisted of scrambled eggs with some kind of gray ground meat(?) and no spices wrapped in a rubbery shell. The plastic fork and knife made this quite... More
