My sister and I came here one Sunday morning for some tea/coffee and a breakfast treat. They have a few breakfast selections. I enjoyed my scone. We were lucky that we got a table because it was quite busy. There always seemed to be a line, for people grabbing something and going or staying to eat.

The Ula Cafe offers coffee drinks, pastries, salads and sandwiches in a friendly, light cafe environment. The scoop of egg salad on a small garden salad was my attempt at a gluten free option. Tasty but I'm still hungry. The cappuccino was well made but I was disappointed that it was served in a paper cup when I was dining... More

Came here after the Sam Adams brewery tour. I got a sweet potato sandwich which was filled with avocado, tomato, tahini, sweet potato on whole grain bread for $9 inc tax. Worth going to, but just a sandwich at the end of the day.

My husband & I were doing an early Sam Adams tour but hadn't had breakfast & just followed the signs right into Ula while waiting for our tour to start. We each ordered a biscuit & an iced coffee.

Ula had a great community feel to it and had really good sandwiches and even better cookies. They seemed to be very committed to their neighborhood, and their pride showed in the quality of the food we had.

Honestly, I really like the atmosphere, but the food and drink offerings just leave something to be desired. Its too bad, really. They need to toast their sandwiches and be more creative with bread selections. I do like their fruit and nut salad for what it is; however, it is overpriced. The mocha was bitter, though I do appreciate their... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct community unique and separate from the bustle of other areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful, large green space well worth a visit if you venture to JP.
