Though there was quite a line when we arrived, the helpful, courteous, efficient staff were more than able to handle things. The staff was able to fill orders quickly, which satisfied those who ordered "to go", and wanted to be off to work. Our cappuccinos...More

While the service was a little terse and the layout for pickups is chaotic and loud, the brioche that I had was exceptional. I'm glad I don't live closer or I'd eat here every day.

The friendly toast next door had a 2 1/2 hr wait so we stopped in here. It was great! Not a lot of sitting space but the pastries and breakfast sandwiches were delicious. Also they have gluten free options.

This place was packed when I visited but the line moved fast and they got the orders out just as quick. There's a decent variety to choose from as to what to order so it's worth a visit when in Boston. Pricing isn't too bad,...More

Tried this out on a Sunday morning because our usual cafe was closed. It was just round the corner from our hotel. It always appeared to be extremely busy in the morning for breakfast service and the main reason why we avoided it. Vast menu...More

There is so much to choose from here that you could just eat breakfast and and afternoon snack, and need nothing more. The sticky bread and butter cake was amazing and kept me fed for the whole Freedom Trail. I really do recommend going here!
