Was looking for a simple breakfast at a decent price and this little restaurant was the ticket. Good service, quick preparation. I was very happy with this stop.

Delicious food. Great location if you are around Thayer Street. A bit slow service. It wasn't that crowded. Clean. We would eat here again

I like to eat at restaurants that are clean. From the second you walk into this place, you automatically see that it is not a clean place. The service was okay, I can't brag about it. I didn't finish my food because it was not that good. For a café, the food is definitely over priced, they charge for everything.... More

If you are in the Providence area for business or pleasure take the time to stop by the Meeting Street Cafe. It has a huge menu with great food but only a few employees so if you want to be waited on to any degree this will most likely not be the spot for you. But, if you want a... More

There is no reason to go here. Omelets are overpriced, service is basically non-existent and there is no ambiance whatsoever. Avoid this place at ALL COSTS.

Meeting Street has been around for ever and serves fantastic breakfast, and deli sandwiches, it's open late and services a diverse crowd of people, located in the heart of Brown University, it's always busy and always fresh and good.

Loved the tuna melt and getting a cookie (or just a half, they are HUGE) was a definite treat! Definitely miss eating here.

We stopped here for breakfast on Sunday. The place is small and was super busy. If you are looking for a diner breakfast with large portions and a no frills atmosphere, this is a worthwhile place to come. This is NOT a trendy brunch spot. But if you are in the mood for a large portioned diner breakfast, it's worth... More

Veselka is your typical delicious Polish diner. While a little overpriced, it suites your daytime and 4 am desires equally well. Certainly check it out if you are looking for an everyday treat in the union square area!

RISD daughter and her good friend suggested MSCafe for a late dinner after an all-day drive from Pittsburgh and a quick move-into-dorm. "Savory sandwiches" is apt: curried chicken and the club sandwich were gobbled down. My lasagna Florentine was a little overcooked but the portion was generous and my side of broccoli was huge, fresh, and al dente. Manager brought... More
