Great breakfasts! The crab cake benedict is excellent. Loved their hash, eggs, coffee, everything! A local family spot, very comfortable, friendly efficient staff. It's a very popular spot so it fills up and parking can at times be tricky.

This is a nice neighborhood restaurant, almost in the shadow of Bunker Hill. We went for breakfast, which was really good! Huge cups of coffee (and they're not shy about refills). Two of us got omelettes with lot's of stuff inside, and one got Eggs Benedict. All were delicious and filling. I also got a "pan fried" English muffin - awesome (never saw that before anywhere!). Hash browns, toast and coffee were all good. Wait staff was great! It's a little on the loud side, as this is a family place, but that made it feel like more of a fun place than a snooty cafe.

We stayed at an AirB&B around the corner, and stumbled upon this perfect little neighborhood place. Friendly, warm and inviting. I would be a daily regular if I lived here!!

I had breakfast here last week. I found the ambiance and overall condition of the restaurant to be very nice and clean. The staff was very helpful and positive. the menu selection was excellent with traditional american breakfast fare. The homemade hash and eggs (poached) were excellent. I had grilled english muffins as well, but they were over cooked and cooked too soon, so they had dried out and gotten too crunchy by the time they were served. My friend had chocolate chip pancakes and they were perfect. The coffee was quite good too. Parking was the typical Bunker Hill/Charlestown challenge. Plan on parking far away and having to walk uphill, or park around the Bunker hill monument and walk down.

We ate here three times in a row for breakfast and had something different every time. The food is fantastic, the staff is friendly and willing to customize your order so you get exactly what you want. Don't pass up their toasted muffins. My favorite was the Pistachio muffin. Omelettes, oatmeal, pancakes, and specials are all good.
