I had breakfast a few mornings whilst I stayed at the omni parker. Great value with great food. Try out their Mediterranean omelette. It comes with potato, toast and a fruit bowl and coffee. Highly recommended

Cozy, friendly, and prompt service at modest prices. Breakfast specials worth trying and enjoying. Located at the start of The Freedom Trail and the Aquarium, this understated cafe is a perfect start to any day in Boston. Weekdays only.

Never try it again. Very rude and unpleasant staff. I didn't get what i ordered. Totally disappointing place. It was the worst cafe I've ever tried.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
