This reveiw is mostly about the dounts. I usually visit on Thursdays when they have creative and great tasting donuts. The coffee is good, also. The vibe in the shop is pleasant with a good mix of students and people working in the city.

To warm up we came here for some coffee. It was lovely. What threw me was they ask what milk do you want. In the UK you just get what your given.

A very pleasant surprise. Was looking for a place that serves vegetarian or vegan soup. Ordered a bowl of VERY spicy hummus lemon soup which turned out to be terrific. 3 packages of oyster crackers helped to "cut" the spice. Contains a variety of vegetables.

The food was fine but the atmosphere lacking. Go to the Thinking Cup a few blocks away instead; great place! It just wasn't worth the visit but it was fine. Would not go back.

One of the rare coffee places in the area to be opened at 6am. Good coffee, also tasted their bagels, yogurt and cake and it was all very good.

Food was really good. I had a breakfast sandwich, biscotti and hot choclate. All was delish. My only complaint is service for the hot choclate was very slow. I had my meal gone and really needing a drink before it was ready. My friend who...More

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
