ハーバード大学卒業の経営者で有名なカフェです。ハーフサイズのサンドイッチがあるので、日本人の胃にはぴったりで、嬉しいです。羊、鳥、野菜、など他の店よりも 工夫を凝らしたサンドイッチ ありますし、ソフトドリンク類のコーラもリーズナブルなので、ドリンクを飲むだけに立ち寄るにも、スタバやダンキンドーナツに立ち寄るより、ボストンらしいです。ファウンテンソーダというのが、ソフトドリンク類です。パンやケーキは普通の味ですが充実しています。持ち帰りにも最適です。Very famous for its Harvard graduated CEO. Half sized sandwiches are really handy and helps me many times. Variety of creative sandwiches are lovely such as roasted lamb, curry chicken etc.. Fountain soda and drinks are reasonable and good to drink in compared...More

We got the egg sandwich and a Breton pastry. Delicious! They were out of their famous sticky buns or we would have gotten one of those too. Highly recommend if you're in the neighborhood.

Hi Camilla, thanks for your review and I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your cappuccino. We typically make our cappuccinos with about equal parts foam, milk, and espresso- so they do tend to be on the foamy side. Did you find that your cappuccino was...More

Really enjoyed coming here a couple of times during a recent holiday in Boston. Very reasonable prices, but most importantly every single item we ordered was absolutely delicious. The bakery items are obviously the main reason you might drop by, but don't overlook the savoury...More

I am not sure if they serve pumpkin bisque. When I went to the restaurant it was still summer time.
