We wanted a quick bite and passed by this place. We liked the food, it was very fresh. The chicken salad sandwich was delicious. Portion is big too. Great for a quick bite.

Fast and reasonable. Only open for breakfast and lunch though. Seating is limited. The hot sandwiches are great option as are the salads.

Visited this cafe after taking the red eye from LA it was recommended by the local hotel front desk. The service was not great but the food was good. A steady flow of customers she's it is popular. Would not re visit as there are plenty of other places to eat locally

And the owners are amazing! They are fast and friendly and deal with the courthouse crowds and regulars so well. I wish I could eat here every morning! The eggs and home fries are also good. Not open on Sundays (maybe not Saturday either.)

This place was amazing! We went for breakfast and loved it! The portions are huge, the price is really reasonable and you order at the counter, sit down and wait for your name to be called. It appears this is where the locals go to eat and I am happy we found it!

Used this cafe twice for breakfast on a recent holiday in Boston. Excellent menu including traditional breakfast, large selection of omlettes and pancakes. Cafe also does lunch and has options for takeaway as well including many varieties of sandwich. Portions are large...you will not go hungry eating here.
