This place. The brown rice and greens tho! Do it!! Really good food. I was actually surprised but I don't know why because the kitchen is massive. The staff are great too. And the poetry that happens there every 2nd and 4th Friday night is OUTSTANDING!

The meal also came with cornbread which I thought was nasty. However I'm from the south and perhaps it's just a different way of baking. Lastly had a homemade chocolate chip cookie which was...

I discovered the Haley House when my job relocated to a building a block away. It is such a wonderful place-- too busy for me to enjoy 11:30-1:30 on weekdays but has proven to be a terrific place for: - bringing my kids into the city on weekends-- perfect brunch or lunch spot with easy parking before or after museum,...

You need to find your way to Haley House. Located right in Dudley square, there are plenty of buses that can bring you here (so no excuses). Food seems to taste better when it comes from a good cause. Go look up the Haley House story and you will feel inspired as you chow down on their Ginger Slaw. Every... More
