Breakfast, brunch, or just a cup of coffee makes Thornton’s a place to put on your must-see list. Inside and outside dining with lots of breakfast options. Prices can’t be beat for Boston — and many other cities. Nice owner and friendly staff, and it...is right down the street from the Prudential Center and hotels nearby.More

This place is a great place for breakfast and is affordable. The service was excellent as was their food. We enjoyed it so much we ate here 5 days in a row for breakfast. This place came highly recommended by our doorman Norman at the...Colonnade Hotel 1 block away. I suspect Norman refers a great number of people to this restaurant. They also have a large menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You won’t be disappointed. If we ever visit Boston again, we will definitely go here and hope that Susan is our server.More

Great breakfast. Food was delicious. However, it took 35 minutes from the time we ordered to get breakfast food. Staff was friendly.

We stopped here for breakfast while staying in a nearby hotel, and were very happy with the service and the food. There are several tables set up outside, which was perfect for the warm morning. We ordered Cinnamon Apple Pancakes, Belgian Waffle with Fresh Strawberries,...Classic Eggs Benedict, and the Shakshuka with Turkish Coffee. Everything was excellent, and the friendly wait staff made the visit very pleasant. We would definitely eat here again when in the area.More

We had breakfast at Thorntons, which was just down the street from our hotel (the Colonnade). The Sunrise croissant exceeded expectations and my wife's omelet was delicious, too. The wait staff made sure that no coffee cup went empty and the location for al fresco...dining on Huntington avenue was delightful. Highly recommended.More

We were looking for a breakfast spot close to our hotel and this was recommended by the front desk. The food was great we had eggs, pancakes and hash browns. The pancakes were flavorful i had buttermilk but they offer a lot of options. The...potatoes had a lot of flavor and the combination of potatoes added to the flavor. The ice coffee was good. We will definitely go again when we are back in the city.More
