The breakfast menu has only one problem: I have difficulty choosing because there are so many really good offerings! I love the challa French toast, the potato latkes, the variety of omelets as well as the mixed grill tasting plate. The service is great; the staff Welcoming and friendly. If you want to have brunch on a weekend day, come... More

The Restaurant still good, but not extraordinary... Pls try the cold borsch or the hot with sour cream...

This place is a monument of mediocrity. Here's what I noticed: (Cons) - Over-crowded - Long wait times - Inspired but unsuccessfully executed menu (Pros) - They play good music in the waiting area - Friendly staff - Not entirely over-priced I had one of their featured items (egg BLT) that had nearly no bacon on it, wilted lettuce, and...

Walked in and ordered the Loaded Latkes with bacon,scallions,cheddar,tomato & sour cream "to go". I walked from work so it was about a 5 minute walk. They were still hot when I got them back to work. Nice and evenly brown on the outside, and soft and moist on the inside. The blend of all the ingredients topped with sour... More

I eat here sometimes and their sister store in Natick often. Quality is great and fresh, but despite the size and table number, guests never leave so the wait is always long. Not zaftigs fault that they are great but plan accordingly. They are great with gluten allergies and carry udis bread and bagels. No gf pancakes yet but the... More

We love Zaftig. Great selection of Jewish foods. Family favorites include Empire Eggs (eggs Benedict on latkes with spinach and lox), salami and eggs, and the ahhhmaxing Challah French toast.

I have ordered from here before, and the food was excellent! I really like their smoked fish options and the bagels were outstanding. Delivery was quick, and the food tasted fresh as a result. If you don't live in the immediate Coolidge Corner area, there is a 7 dollar delivery fee, however. Watch out for that when you're ordering.

Our daughter first took us to Zaftigs for a Mothers day brunch in 2007. Since then we try to go there when we are in Boston. There matzo ball soup is fantastic as is there corn beef sandwich. If you are in the mood for comfort food,this is the place. Safeties is located in Brookline. The area also has many... More

Boston is, oddly, a lousy city for deli food. Zaftigs is a very good-though not great-deli in Coolidge Corner, Brookline. The restaurant is large and comfortable. My Reuben was pretty good. Three of us shared the potato pancake appetizer, which was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. Service was quick and friendly.
