The kids found this place in Westboro that was highly recommended by a quite a few people. On a Sunday morning at 10:30 we reach here and stare at the long line to go in. The restaurant is quite small and line up was long. Thought about going elsewhere but did not have the energy to find and drive elsewhere.... More

Sunday morning breakfast at Baker Street Cafe is excellent! Yes, it is worth the wait! Once seated, the service is prompt and friendly. There's something for everyone on the menu. Portions are very generous and beautifully presented with a bowl of fresh fruit. I had poached eggs with ham and the ham is real bone in ham. My friend had... More

We went here at 9am on a weekday and it was packed, with what seemed like locals. Had a very nice vibe, helped by the helpful and friendly staff. Food was delicious with massive portions. Lots of interesting choices on the menu.

Like every other review, unless you arrive at opening, be prepared to lineup outside and wait for 30-60 minutes. The food is decent, but the smoked meat that arrived as a side on my plate was warm and soggy. Since when is smoked meat steamed?! I think the power of suggestion and herd mentality are responsible for the lines and... More

Visited this establishment for Sunday brunch. Although I am not necessarily into the British rock vibe that was embedded in the ambience, the food was stellar. Had to wait almost an hour for a table because it was so busy, but we received baked goods in the line up which was a kind gesture on the management's part. As mentioned,... More

My wife were out looking for a new place. We came upon the restaurant by chance. Glad we did and we will be back! I had the green eggs and ham. Really good. Bread is baked on site. Servers friendly. Prices are fair.

The lineup says it all -- worth the wait. Always a satisfying breakfast. Have been going there for years and never disappointed. Could tone down the heavy metal though (volume and intensity of the music) -- not very conducive to eating.

Had heard decent food reviews about the Baker Street Cafe so decided the 6 of us would pop in for a late lunch. what a mistake. The music volume was SO loud that we could not speak amongst ourselves for the entire meal...it was loud to the point I wanted to walk out and give up on waiting for our... More

Wow, impressive food and nice service. It does have the yuppie and hipster type feel, but if you can suffer that then you are in for an amazing breakfast, including a nice fruit salad.

My wife and I got to Baker Street around 9:30 so we knew there would be a lineup. Weathers nice, no worries. About 10 minutes in, the owner comes out the check the line and has mini muffins with him... amazing. We get inside our server team was fantastic. Food was epic, and tasty. We grab some cinnamon buns to... More
