Our Boston tour guide took us here for lunch. It was a great stop for a quality lunch. Variety of sandwiches, soups, and treats. Similar to Panera or Jasons, but more trendy.

We came on a Sunday morning, so we should have expected long lines for brunch. Despite all the people, we were able to get served quickly. Unlike the Friendly Toast down the street, which had a two hour wait, we could get through the line...More

We had lunch at here on a Sunday. When we first arrived they were very busy but the line moved quickly. Everyone was super nice! I highly recommend the roasted sweet potato sandwich.
