Old standby, always consistent and delicious. Every time I am in Boston I eat here. Never disappoints. Proportions are large, service is great, beer selection is good.

You're packed in a little tight, but the sandwiches at this place are wonderful. Fun combinations, great flavor, wish I had a place like this near me.

We decided to eat at Parish Cafe after it was recommended to us and we saw it had good reviews. While one would typically associate sandwiches with being lunch fare, the restaurant was packed when we dined for dinner. We shared a giant meatball to start, which was delicious. I ended up ordering The Bravas, which unfortunately turned out to be a bad decision as it was way too salty. The combination of the meats and cheese was tasty, though after eating half of it, it became so salty that I began to feel sick. However, the rest of my family enjoyed what they ordered. My mother ordered the Baked Mac & Cheese, and my sister had The Simple Chicken dinner, both of which they liked.

Overall, I would recommend the Parish Cafe, as everyone enjoyed their meals except for myself. Just beware that The Bravas sandwich is very salty, and you should probably order one of the other myriad sandwiches instead.

This is a sitdown restaurant that specializes in sandwiches. The sandwiches were very big, made to order, and delicious. Service was friendly and efficient.

stumbled across this looking for a quick bite before we got on our plane to head home. For a Monday afternoon, the place was hopping.! We sat at the bar and got served quickly. My husband had a sandwich called "the hot and dirty pig" which he raved about. I had a salad that was good as well. Ingredients were fresh. Atmosphere was good, staff was friendly
