The food is good: the wait staff and counter staff has been one of the worst in Boston for 20 years almost now... believe me I have lived and been a patron since it opened.

We ate breakfast here every morning... fortunately we found it the first one! It was GREAT! In addition to plenty of yummy and healthy breakfast / lunch options, they have lots of specialty coffees and hot chocolates served in giant cups (practically bowls)! Not to be missed if you like that kind of thing! The service is good too. You can either eat in or order to-go from the counter. Nice little cafe atmosphere too.

Stopped in with friends for a quick lunch. The location on Tremont is convenient and the prices are quite good, but the food is just average and the service is very slow. There seemed to be only one waiter for the entire place. I had the turkey rueben which was pretty tasteless and came with corn chips on the side (corn chips?) which were also tasteless. My friends both ordered the quiche and after about 15 minutes were told that they were out of that kind of so had to change their order. The atmosphere was average with tables close together - the man at the next table was very interested in our conversation to the point that it felt like he was sitting with us. The one thing I will say is that the coffee was excellent so I would stop here for breakfast, but that's about it. With so many great restaurants within a stone's throw of this place there's no need to eat at this one.

It's a really cute space in a great location. Window seats are great for people watching. The wait staff are usually pretty friendly by Boston standards. Their coffee has had inconsistant quality, though. The breakfast fare has always been enjoyable, especially the "Eggopolis".
