Description: Cafeteria is a cool, casual, contemporary atmosphere where the comfort food of "yesterday" gets schooled by the flavors of "today" to create a dining experience that is "tray chic." Our new cafeteria-themed menu is a modern interpretation of classic soul-satisfying American dishes prepared with organic grass-fed beef and lamb, free-range chicken, the freshest seafood and organic, local produce. These properly raised ingredients behave perfectly with a new world of herbs, spices and culinary techniques to create deeply satisfying comfort food for the new millennium.

“Comfort food on Newbury Street”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Cafeteria is not a "cafeteria" but an interesting restaurant (tables on 2 floors plus outside dining in good weather). They serve comfort food from burgers, to mac & cheese, to meatloaf, to pizza, most with a new twist. Not fine dining, but a fun place to eat, with reasonable prices (considering the high-rent district they're in). Call ahead so you don't have to wait.

“Loved it!!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We had passed by this cafe everyday while shopping on the streets and it was ALWAYS packed. We could not wait to try it, and we were not disappointed. It was great to sit outside in the fresh air and watch the hustle and bustle on newbury street on a Saturday afternoon. Service and food were both great. Definitely recommend!

“Love this place”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This place is great. The food is on the casual side and delicious. The drinks are good, as is the service and the outdoor seating is great. It's a great place for just two people or a larger group.

“Excellent burgers!”

Good service, good burgers, clean bathrooms, inside or outside dining. Food is a little pricey, just a little.
