“Go here!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Had breakfast here with a friend while in Boston. Their breakfast was delicious! They have a lot of items on the menu and the prices are decent. I wanted to have breakfast here everyday I was in the area. The staff was very friendly.

The food was GOOD!

“great place for breakfast”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I was in Boston for an event an the Hynes Convention Center and enjoyed having breakfast at Thornton's every morning. The service is friendly and the prices are quite reasonable for a spot in the center of the city. This restaurant definitely has a neighborhood feel and is a great alternative to the chain places inside the Convention Center mall. Very good omelettes!

“Excellent Breakfast in Back Bay”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We stopped in during blizzard conditions and the place was packed, but we squeezed in at a small table. Still got excellent service from a friendly but busy waitress. Eggs cooked perfectly, pancakes were great.
