Breakfast Downtown?

We are staying at the Godfrey and looking for casual breakfast places nearby. Something with good eggs/omelettes etc possibly? I can't find any "diners" on Google, so any recommendations would be great.

Slim pickin's for that sort of thing in that area. South Street diner is the closest I can think of. About half a mile away.

Pret A Manger isn't far away. Chain to be sure, but tasty and fresh food.

South Street diner is just the type of thing I was looking for - only a 10 min walk apparently so thank you :)

Love a good Pret too but too many in London, so after something different - thank you though!

Deli One on Arch St is pretty good.

Boston Common Coffee near the hotel is really good but has breakfast sandwiches and pastries vs a full breakfast.

Also, on Tremont Street, near the Park Street T station is the Black Seed Cafe. You order at the counter and pick up when called ... so not a 'traditional diner', but very good, not too far and near the start of the Freedom Trail.

South Street Diner is great - old school traditional diner open 24/7. Just be prepared to queue outside if you go at peak times.

Check out the Paramount on Charles street too. Bit of a hike, 3/4ish of a mile I'm guessing, but it would be a nice walk across the Common and down Charles street.

Gets a bit too crowded on weekends so try for a weekday.

Our Prets aren't as good as your Prets, anyway. Glad you found alternatives
