The atmosphere, service and clientele are all hip, urban, fun, and just slightly funky. Delicious food.

This is one of my delectable favorites when in Boston. Food is fabulous. Usually very busy so be there when they open first thing in the morning! Sip your coffee and savor the sticky bun!

What a great discovery in the Copley area of Boston. Stopped in for a muffin and discovered and whole menu for breakfast and lunch. Ended up with a whole box of croissants and muffins

Popular place. You stand in line and order. The cakes and pastries are amazingly delicious! Good grain salads too and a selection of interesting sandwiches. Limited seating. It's a coffee shop.

Not much else to say - a Terrific spot with delicious coffee and sandwiches made fresh. Fast service as well - a must-try for anyone near the Theater district.

I along with 8 family members stopped in for lunch. This allowed me to try many items each of which were very good. My curried tuna sandwich has a very unique taste and a hummus sandwich was also very good. I had the chance to eat most of a granola bowl which was also very good. It tasted similar to... More

we are a family of 6, the line is often too long and what is in the case leaves a lot to be desired for everyone's varying taste buds.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
