This is good home cooking. Our waitress was Chivonne (spelling) and she had such a great personality. This restaurant is walking distance to the Boston Marriot hotel so very convenient. The waitress was very busy but still managed to give us excellent service. Would definitely go there again...

I have been to Boston many times and Thornton's is the only place I go for breakfast. It is conveniently located, excellent service, massive choice, and very reasonably priced. They are also happy to swap home fries for fruit which is my token gesture towards more healthy eating!

this small but friendly café was 2min walk from our hotel. their breakfast menu was huge. the only place in Boston we found did fried eggs. Although always busy this cafe's food was well worth the wait.
disliked fried potatoes with most orders (too much for breakfast)
great soup at lunch times. great service from very friendly staff

Have just returned from a 2 day stop in Boston and ate breakfast here both days. We were a party of 6 and both days we were seated very quickly. The service was excellent as was the choice. Good portion sizes and everyone cleared their plates both days. I would highly recommend this place especially if you are stopping at the Colonnade hotel as it is so close.

We stayed at the Colonnade Hotel and went here every morning - 5 mornings for breakfast. Plenty of choice on menu, cheap prices and friendly staff. Quality of food is excellent.
