Friendly service. Fresh, handcrafted food

I came upon this place while walking around looking for a place to grab a quick bite for lunch. I had the half Tuscan salad/half lazio sandwich. Both were very good but the sandwich may have been one of the best sandwiches I have had. The bread was Undoubtedly hand made. The veggies were freshly... read more

Went for lunch... They only have brunch on Sunday's but even though the place was packed out they still made room for us at the bar. Got a couple coffees and cinnamon rolls which were amazing. Great place friendly service!

This place was so crazy busy and the staff handled it like pros. They all had such a great attitude and that made our experience a positive one. I had an omlette with fig, prosciutto, and goat cheese. It was a wonderful combination of flavors. My plate came with a fresh fruit salad, which I loved. We also split an... More

I found this jewel, after walking my daughters legs off all over Boston. The lentil soup hit the spot on a cold fall day. All the employees were friendly. I felt at home. My daughter loved the hot caramel apple cider.

Our Karma must have been good as we walked in without calling ahead and got a window seat that was reserved for a party that did not show up. The food was very yummy especially the corned beef hash. Just a couple of minutes later there was a massive rush, which the owner said was just average for a weekend.... More

We kick started our day visiting MIT and Harvard with a wonderful brunch here. The service is warm and welcoming matching the quality of the incredible food. My partner was overwhelmed for omelette choice but the fresh avocado in the butternut squash omelette sealed the deal and it was incredible. I opted for the buttermilk waffles with fruit and it...

Very cramped but the most delicious brunch spot in the Cambridge area. Used to go here all the time while studying in Boston and just went back on a recent visit. Still dreaming of the lobster eggs Benedict! The host is always there (I think he's the owner) and always full of kindness and good cheer which makes you feel... More

We happened upon this place for a late lunch and are we ever glad we did. The soups and flatbread pizzas were fabulous.. with large portion sizes and tons of flavor. I ordered the Chai Tea Latte and it blew me away....so bold and spicy and delicious. I complimented the Barista and she took the time to explain what she... More

This is a busy breakfast joint with very substantial omelettes and free drip coffee refills available from early morning to late afternoon. Liked the smoke salmon & avocado omelette with the fruit cup on the side. Coffee presentation was interesting on some selections. The food quality and service far outstrips the decor. Very diverse customer profile.

OK, so I am from London so the choice of US style sandwiches appealed but hey. I thought the Boston sandwich, delicious focaccia, lobster and avocado was fantastic. The following day I chose a Milano, a toasted ham, cheese and pickle on sour dough, bingo again. We liked Café Luna so much that we tried breakfast. My toasted English muffin... More
