Very hood

The food is very good and the service was also great. The atmosphere is not so great though. We had a party of 5 but had to sit at a 4 top table because there was not another table free. It was crowded and seemed like way too many people for such a small space. Thankfully it cleared out so... read more

Recommended by the trolley driver. Busy place but turnover is quick. I had the Birds nest and my wife ordered the oatmeal with raisins, brown sugar and milk. Both items were hot and hit the spot. Coffee was hot and tasted just right. Overall a good place to eat a quick breakfast or pick up a pastry.

Excellent breakfast - we ordered the Bird's Nest & the Eggs Benedict. Fresh, hot, perfect portions. Coffee was good, too.

Line was to the door 10am Friday morning, but ordering and service was quick for our group of 6. You place order, then sit and receive food. Not really a relaxing cafe experience, but once you get a table it could be. Staff was extremely nice and helpful, as busy as this place was they were really impressively great. Obviously... More

Our concierge recommended stopping here for breakfast and we are so happy we did. We encountered a small line when we got there but it moved quickly as they have good order system that is quite efficient. You order and pay at the counter and then the staff brings you your meal to your table. The choices are plenty and... More

I got a croissant with cucumber, tomato, havarti, avacado and sprouts, it was very good and their iced tea is good as well. We ordered to go and took our lunch over to Ellis Square and sat at a table under a tree.....would like to try other items on the menu.

We walked here from our hotel as we had slept too late for their breakfast. We were. Very happy with all of the items we ordered. Poached eggs were perfectly cooked. The waffle was great, oatmeal and chocolate pastry were yummy! Very friendly staff. If I were a local I'd be a regular.

This place used to be great. I would refer people here all of the time. Lately they take things off of the menu but do not update their website or online ordering system. The food is moderately priced for the area but he quality of service has declined greatly. Hopefully, they will realize this before its too late but will... More

We happened by goose feathers while walking. A very nice lunch, pleasant atmosphere, fast paced, pretty high traffic business. We had soup, sandwich & drinks. I'm ready to go back, bread was very good.

Good coffee. Hit or miss food. Croissant stuffed with raspberry cream sounded yummy but was actually more of a dinner roll with half teaspoon of preserves and no visible cream. Breakfast burrito was gummy. Order at counter. Coffee refills if you go to counter and ask. One stall ladies room had a constant line.
