Visited this place each time I've visited Boston. The food is great! The Mimosas are delicious as well. Both times I visited it was pretty busy. They provide great service though. Def recommend.

近くに住む友人がランチに連れて行ってくれました。カジュアルなアメリカンダイナーという感じで居心地がよい。大きなオムレツはできたてでおいしかった。 Friends of mine who live in Somerville took me to this cafe for lunch. It seemed to be a popular place. It has friendly atmosphere. The omelet I had was big and delicious.

Or rather our son's favorite! He can't get enough of the pancakes - and he (and us) are huge fans of their breakfast egg sandwich. Extremely family friendly

Enjoyed Sound Bites Cafe for breakfast before our drive back up to Maine. It was excellent. We were nervous at first because the line was out the door. They offer you coffee while you wait. Line was much quicker that thought as we were seated in about 5 minutes. Food was amazing. One of the best breakfasts I have had... More

This is a great neighborhood cafe for brunch. It seems that the owners are North African—one of their signature dishes is eggs in a spicy tomato sauce (shakshuka)—and the Tunisian omelet (feta, tomatoes, olives, green onions) was delicious. Others in the group had pancakes, which were also very good. It's not the cheapest food around, but you get plenty of... More

Was highly recommended to have breakfast here, the food was not bad. Had Moroccan eggs and Tomato And asparagus eggs Benedict. You can have free flow coffee at an extra $2.95. The service was not as friendly. It's probably one of the better cafe around Medford but we've tasted better breakfast in many other places. Very limited parking.

There's always a line out the door for this place & it's clear to see why! I got the cornbread pancakes and they certainly did not disappoint! Will definitely be going back.
