While the service was a little terse and the layout for pickups is chaotic and loud, the brioche that I had was exceptional. I'm glad I don't live closer or I'd eat here every day.

The friendly toast next door had a 2 1/2 hr wait so we stopped in here. It was great! Not a lot of sitting space but the pastries and breakfast sandwiches were delicious. Also they have gluten free options.

There is so much to choose from here that you could just eat breakfast and and afternoon snack, and need nothing more. The sticky bread and butter cake was amazing and kept me fed for the whole Freedom Trail. I really do recommend going here!
