Wanted somewhere within walking distance of Atlantic Ave/State St area and boy glad we tried this place. Very tasty pancakes, home fries and coffee. Everything looked and tasted great. Tiny place but that is why we liked it. Plan on waiting outside at busy times....More

This is the best breakfast in Boston. It gets really busy but the food is super. Don’t plan on having lunch if you have had one of there breakfasts. The staff are very chatty but attentive.

I was looking for a comfortable place to have breakfast and discovered Theo's. Very small place with 6 or so tables and a small counter. Very old school and delicious food. Cash only but worth it.

Brazilian Moqueca (Fish Stew) is the clear favorite. The chef prepared it for himself which is always a good sign! The pasta was fabulous - both the alfredo and garlic/olive oil. This place is awesome - so comfortable. Was my brother's pick to celebrate his...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
