Instead of our exspesive hotel buffet, we walked around the corner and found Max's Deli Cafe. Family operated with quick, friendly counter service and excellent breakfast choices at a fraction of hotel prices. If you are in the financial district, Quincy market area, give Max's...More

Stopped in for a quick breakfast on the way to Quincy Market. Breakfast was OK. Service good, staff friendly. A bit of a "greasy spoon" type of place, but it worked.

Being a visitor to Boston, this place was a little confusing when you walk in as to how to order and pay. It was very crowded, but the manager was very helpful and we finally got our order in. The food was worth the wait.

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
