I was staying at an apartment on Appleton Street and commuting to a local hotel for business activities. I stopped for a quick breakfast. Nothing fancy, but the restaurant was clean and owner/staff friendly. I enjoyed a freshly made omelet, toast and tea. It was served prompty and fresh. The price was fair for being close to the South End business district.

The cafe is locally owned and not a chain. it is not fancy. Order at the counter, pay and your food is served. I noticed that quite a few of the customers were 'regulars' and spoke to one another, The owner new quite a few of the customers by name.

Would I return? Yes!

We love this small local eatery and stop every time on Boston. The coffee is perfect and breakfast sandwiches delicious. We like to sit by the window and peel watch.

I work in the Back Bay and this is my favorite place to come for lunch. There are a wide variety of sandwiches, including panini, served on your choice of breads. Everything is always fresh. You order at the counter, and then your lunch is brought to you on ceramic plates. The atmosphere is casual but very nice and consistent with the historic charm of the neighborhood. The people who work here are incredibly friendly and helpful. The prices are very reasonable (actually, on the low side for the area and quality). I can't think of a better place to get a sandwich in the South End. They also have great salads and soups, and wonderful breakfast sandwiches in the morning.

The employees were very nice and helpful, even though they did completely mess up our fairly simple order. The food was simple and good. Coffee was good one day, overbrewed the other day, but ok in general. The place is very cute, with comfortable booths and armchairs.

I really liked their omelettes and low prices considering the quality of the place. The staff were really friendly and they seemed to have a lot of local regular customers.
