Small place with limited seating however a great lunch location for local Beacon Hill employees. Chicken kabob dinner which includes salad and rice has large portions AND is delicious. The spinach pies are also my favorite!

Walk two blocks from Nine Zero Hotel. Friendly quick accurate service. Four of us had breakfast. Our food was prepared correctly, my "over medium well eggs" were just right no runny white, nice thick bacon and toast. Will try this place for lunch. Must go next door for washroom facilities. It's small, clean and very popular with locals. Some Greek... More

I was with a group in Boston on business and we were taken here for lunch. This is a Boston staple, next door to the State House. Their menu is Greek. They offer a large selection, from "plates," sandwiches, soups, salads, etc. I ordered the Greek salad, and I have to say that it was mediocre. It was just some... More

Not the most pretty place in Boston, however they are very quick in serving you and it is useful when you are on the go. Not too expensive and the food offers variety. Price: Under $10 per meal Recommendation: Spanakopita

This was just around the corner from our apartment whilst staying in Boston. A great stop for breakfast, served quickly and really delicious, great coffee. No frills and excellent value, just what you need to start the day.

I've been going to this place for a long time. I work at the State House and this is just across the street. Everyone works hard and they truly try to make all of their customers happy. You can see that the locals really appreciate them - there was a line out the door this afternoon when I went to... More

Small eatery, I went for breakfast. Basic breakfast menu, eggs & toast kind of thing (nothing special). Seems to serve locals and workers from the courthouse across the street.

... to start your diet. What a dump! Imaginative name, though. Would be more appropriately located in Washington DC.

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.
