I am so glad I can finally get in again now that the summer crunch has eased (I LOVE you, tourists, but I really like my restaurants.). Haven's breakfasts and lunches can be "old reliables" or surprising new delights...take your pick! It IS just plain...More

This is a charming, cute, busy, breakfast/lunch/brunch place with counter service, followed by the wait staff bringing your order to the table. We were here for lunch. The salads, soups, sandwiches, wraps, and coffee were all delicious and the portions were ample. The wait staff...More

This cafe is simply charming. It’s warm and cozy and the staff are very friendly. I ordered smoked salmon Benedict, it was amazing, the sauce wasn’t overwhelmingly lemony and the eggs were cooked perfectly. It was served over a lovely fresh croissant. I also had...More

We found Haven almost by accident and are very pleased that we did. It is small, but well-organized, with a remarkably friendly staff and upbeat atmosphere. The food is excellent and the portions generous. Next time we travel to the Boston area we shall return.

Haven's has solved the dilemma facing many busy places like this through their clever use of assigning a table number from a runner when one enters - nicely done! A James Beard award for the practical!

Typical of the area with a bit of an attitude. Food was good but overhyped. Not amazing and not spectacular. But good.

Great location. Delicious food: we had omelettes and pumpkin pancakes. Nice cozy spot. Fabulous coffee, specialty treats, muffins, buns. This is a must stop if you're in the area. It's worth the wait if there is a line!

We waited on line about 45 minutes to get in but it was worth it. As the line moves, you order food at the counter and wait to get seated, and the food is delivered to your table. Quality of food and preparation were very...More

Haven operates on a walk in basis, we do not take reservations. This time of year we do have a wait but the line usually moves alone quickly. Thank you, shelly
