Visited for breakfast. Unique style, queue and order food then pay and then get your seat - and it works well 😀 Lovely pancakes and great omelettes plus specials Definitely recommend

So long story short, we drove all the way from New York to taste this delicious breakfast /brunch. The fruits were amazing, the french toast were amazing and the fries were to die for and more importantly, the mimosas just hit the spot. This was mos def worth the 1 hour wait l.

Following other reviews I wasn't sure how busy this would be, but we walked straight in and found the ordering and seating system very easy. Food was great, as I had Apple and Cinnamon pancakes with bacon. They were gorgeous and will probably go back tomorrow.

Simples. Great food awesome location type of venue not good for larger than four. Quick service smiles galore. Very competent staff. Just loved everything about it. The American dream at work and it's in Beacon Hill which is by the most wonderful area. Felt like a dream

Breakfast was delicious, no table service, order your meal then they seat you Beacon Hill is amazing, a block away from the park. The staff is very attentive to your needs, my husbands sandwich was taking a little longer than my omelette, they explained why...

Really popular breakfast stop, queue out the door, food really good, nice staff. Worth a visit but not if you have a lot to do, plenty of other diners in the area.

In the heart of Beacon Hill. Be prepared for long lines on weekends. Good quality food, limited selections. The seating system they have works perfectly even when lines are out the door. Staff is great.

The lights are dimmed and the votives are lits. The kitchen is open - the staff never stops and the servers are very pleasant. They really try to be accommodating. Sometimes we request no additional salt and they're agreeable. Recently, my mother enjoyed gluten free shrimp tacos. The kale salad is nice. We love the salmon with noodles but sometimes... More

Stopped by for breakfast. Was not disappointed. Although the line was out the door it moved fairly fast as no one sat until they had their food in hand. Amazingly quick service. Great staff and service.

Thank cbabin1119

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
