“Simply Amazing”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

I am a bit of a foody and from Montana. I was in Boston for a week and this was one of the top three places I ate at. I did hit it early in the morning, like 8:30, for breakfast and the experience and food were some of the best. The homeade guac and pico for the breakfast burrito were great and if I had more time I would have tried other things on the menu. They had healthy options with fresh fruit too. Well run and they know food. My preference for this place would definitely be breakfast after scanning the lunch menu, but I think any meal you can find something you like here.

“Good breakfast and an interesting experience.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Breakfast was worth the wait. The line was out to the door and the wait was about 45 minutes just as other reviewers say. You watch your breakfast being cooked and when your food is ready there is a table ready. They have it figured out. Breakfast was good and so was the dining experience.

“Bananas never tasted so good”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

You will wait forever (we were over 45 min). When you finally get up to the place to order a table magically appears. My sister and I split an order or caramel banana french toast and two eggs over easy. We waddled for an hour, but we both agreed: it was good food.

As it was suggested: don't go on a weekend (like we did). Save it for a weekday if you are a tourist (might as well). Have it around 10 pm and just skip lunch. Walk the Commons a few times and you'll work it off!

“Just go for the experience”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

First, this should be a place on top of your "To Do" list just because it's part of Boston local history.

Second, dont expect anything wow about the food because it's a popular place to go. it's pretty average and what gets people through the door is the experience.

we went this past sunday with an arrival time of 940am-ish and the line was just at the door. after we got on line, pretty much the line started to get longer, though it wasnt down the block long. expect to wait at that point from the door, at least 40 mins to order and sit down.

service was great. once you get your food, the staff seats you and makes sure you have all you need.

other than that, just get what you want and leave to say that you got to go to the paramount.

“Good food, long wait”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

The wait in line is a bit long and eating quarters are tight but the food is really good! Easy to get to.
