“Great place to chill, good food ”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for a couple hours to grab some breakfast and recharge my devices (as well as my legs) while in transit to Europe. The bagels are quite nice and the coffee (Mocha latte), while hot is enjoyable. Definitely not the best I've tasted but better than average. Decently priced, but no music in the cafe which feels odd once you notice it. Gets quite busy in the morning but you can definitely find a seat.

The tables near the window have plenty of power outlets to charge your stuff and the free Wi-Fi is solid. Just ask one of the staff for it and you're in.

“Great large cafe, nice pastries, quick snacks...”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I love this place. It is large, roomy, not at all cramped like most places in town. I used to work right by there and went to BCC almost every day. I love their scones, cakes, pastries, wonderful convenient place to meet up with friends for a quick coffee. You can even grab breakfast before work, very convenient. Service is quite slow though, so there is often a long line, so it is recommended to go with a friend and claim one of the large sofas while the other person is waiting in line:)

“Great for a quick bite before a show”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

We went here right before our Boston Ballet performance of Cinderella. We got some sandwiches and there soup. Food was pretty good, a little expensive but decent food and quick service. They were very busy so the tables, breakfast bar and seating area were not very clean.

“Good coffee and friendly service”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

A nice place to go if your hotel charges obscene amounts for breakfast... The coffee and pastries were good and (although I didn't gave any) the panini and other savoury items looked nice too

“Wonderful little deli”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

This deli has everything. Although I had a Panini, the homemade quiche looked fantastic. There were also homemade soups to choose from. My Panini was piled high with thick slices of ham and had a wonderful sauce. It was big enough for 2 to share. It came with a side of salad. I'll try quiche the next time or maybe one of those soups. There were also salads and wraps to choose from.
