A great cafe bistro nearby the Marriot Courtyard. Breakfast was here every day instead of the hotel, and well worth the short 5 minute walk. The food was delicious, all made fresh to order, and the staff were really hospitable and friendly.

And you can't beat Saturday and Sunday breakfast, brunch. Never feel rushed even though it can get busy. Staff is friendly and work hard. It is not fast food,... More

Lucky's is a small, BYOB, friendly and unpretentious boit. The food is solid. Housed in a darkish, basement room that sometimes holds a musty smell, the generally good vibe and good value compensate. NOT a place for dining/ambience snobs!

Very charming and cozy. Prices were pretty good (especially for college students) and it is close to one of the WPI campuses. A little cramped, so I wouldn't go with any groups over 3.

We stopped here while taking a class nearby. My friend and I had the scali bread grilled cheese with bacon and avocado. It was really, really, really good. Someone nearby had the soup and it smelled so good. What a cute little place!!

I love this cozy little restaurant. The food is fresh and delicious and the prices are great! They have the best soups and I love the miso honey dressing. My husband raves about their peanut soup! Everything about this place is unique and special.

I had a mushroom and cheese omelette, rye toast, and home fries. Yum, yum, yum! I was also surprised about how inexpensive the total bill was. Well worth the search! Find the outdoor stairs that lead underground, turn the knob on the wooden and wrought iron door, go down the hallway past the copy/print shop and it's there on your... More

A block from the Courtyard Marriott (walkable, actually), three of us visited during Clark U Graduation weekend. Very glad to have found this place. Three of us had three different dishes, all were excellent (Eggs Benedict, a special Omelette, and fluffy Pancakes w/side of Eggs). Everything, including sides/potatoes, ham, were excellent, very fresh & nicely cooked, and with great service... More

Friendly little place with good, standard breakfast or lunch items. Portions are generous and service is good. For lunch you order at the counter and they serve at the table.
