I stopped here while I was on my way to a work meeting, and I was so pleased I did so. Their honey cinnamon latte was delicious, with just the right amount of foam, and their zucchini bread was freshly baked and very good. The...staff were friendly, and there's some seating, although this isn't a large coffeeshop.More

Whilst visiting Boston, we went for breakfast 2 days in a row due to the amazing bacon scones - delicious. Lovely coffee too. The cakes looked fantastic.

With a very pleasant atmosphere I stopped in Saturday evening for a quick cup of coffee. The service was very friendly and the menu options varied from the traditional coffee/latte menu to more creative options like a seasonal beet latte. Not a lot of seating,...but comfortable enough. I recommend!More

We discovered this cute coffee shop with lovely eats, friendly service and good coffee. The breakfast sandwich with bacon and cheese is recommended, Boston cream tart and the toasted bagels. No WiFi is a blessing. We went there two days in a row.

While the food was ok (basic egg sandwiches, muffins, etc), the attitude of the employees made it so I would NEVER return. We are from NY so we are used to busy coffee shop employees but this was totally different and unjustified. First, when asking...for code to locked restroom, they barked the code (as to two of our party members). Second, when my wife noted there was no TP in the ladies room, she was ignored and has to find it herself in a utility closet. This level of service is absurd. I hope management reads this and straighten this out.More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
