incredible! It was worth the 45 minute wait. The lobsta benedic was awesome and the French toast my cousin got was (according to him) the best he has ever had

Nice wait staff, great cappuccino, tasty breakfast. What more can you ask? Directions, if you're from out of town. And those were nicely given too :).

Quick and easy breakfast, very filling and tasty, a little noisy inside as it is very small and the bathroom could really use an overall.

Cafe Luna was walking distance from our hotel and the food was excellent. I would recommend getting there right when it opens because it fills up very quick and you will be waiting. As stated earlier, the food was excellent and would recommend it to anyone in the Boston/Cambridge area.

This is by far my favorite spot for brunch! I stopped by a couple of time and I enjoyed their Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Fresh Berries & fresh orange juice! The food is excellent and service is always great. -> worth the wait <3 !

I go to school down the street, so this is the perfect and most favorite lunch spot for me and my friends when we want a quick but uber delicious bite. I love the sandwiches for lunch. My favorite is the thanksgiving turkey sandwich. The brunches though are a whole other story. Their brunch menu is 4 pages long with... More

They also served great coffee. On talking to the locals you need to book to get a table on the weekend otherwise you are... More

Title says it all. We had breakfast there 4 times on our 8-day trip. The food is delicious and quickly served generous plates. Every server we met was very nice to us and remembered what/how we liked our meals and coffees. Long waits on week-ends (on which days we'd go somewhere else) but on our last Saturday, we were offered... More

This was one of the best breakfasts that I've ever eaten. Everything on the menu sounded so great, I just had to try something new. I opted for the pear, bacon, and gorgonzola omelet. It sounded very unusual, but the flavors blended together perfectly. My 2 friends and I also split an order of the chocolate banana pecan waffles. They... More

Thank you very much for your comments. I am so glad you liked the food. I am the chef and that means a lot to me. Our challenge is that we are very small and while we try hard to make people comfortable, it is impossible to provide the kind of spacing a larger restaurant can do. We are a... More
