This book/cafe is a relaxed student oriented business. I had an Apple cobbler with chocolate ice cream which was tasty and satisfying. The coffee isn't high end but pair it with the cobbler and a book, it was fine. The staff are pleasant and didn't...More

Needed to escape the high cost hotel breakfast and found this gem a few minutes away. It's part book store part cafe. The food, at least their breakfast is great. Everything from eggs to waffles they have you covered. I am a carnivore but they...More

I find it very difficult to give a real, live physical bookstore a bad review. Perhaps it's because I'm not sure if it's a bookstore anymore. Maybe it's because twice while I was browsing books - once upstairs and once downstairs - I was asked...More

Cute cafe and bookstore on Newberry St, lovely to sit outside on warm Boston day. The focaccia bread on sandwich though wasn't fresh, which ruined a possibly great lunch. Side salad unremarkable. All over-priced. Service was friendly.

Decent meal with decent coffee, and the bookstore vibe is definitely a plus. The staff should be a bit more attentive. I had to ask for coffee a bunch of times and for creamer.
