I have eaten here twice and it has been great both times. This place is a local institution for those who work in the area - it's always crowded at lunch and the outdoor seating is always filled in the summer. Definitely, a cool place...More

We made this our "go to" place when we stayed at the Taj Hotel just around the corner. The staff were lovely and friendly and there was a warm atmosphere. The food was excellent cafe style fare and the wine list was adequate.

Arrived late into Boston and wanted a quick bite. Happened upon this cafe and I highly recommend it. It seems that Boston’s famous chefs were asked to create a sandwich to be on the menu, therefore, each sandwich is named for the chef and the...More
