Across the street from Boston Commons is good place to start the day. Coffee and tea were perfect. She enjoyed blueberry muffin and I had ham, egg & cheese on English muffin. Both were excellent đź‘Ś

I enjoyed breakfast here. The coffee shop is very trendy and my sausage and egg on an English muffin was tasty. I also enjoyed the atmosphere and service was good. I would say it was good value, not overpriced at all.

Had a coffee, biscuit and carrot cake here. Enjoyed all. Nice little place for a quick refresh. Was very busy when we were there but service is quite quick.

We had a nice walk over from Broad street. The hazelnut coffee was very tasty. The cage free eggs with veggies was delicious. Plus a lemon poppy seed scone to finish up the meal. Everything was made fresh and delicious.

One of the best coffees I had in Boston. Had I seen this place on the first day in Boston, I would have stopped here for breakfast, or lunch. All the presented dished and cakes looked absolutely wonderful.

A cozy, European feel place. Great selection of coffee. Superb cannolies. For me way much better then at always crowded Mikes Bakery.

Good choices for breakfast and the food was good quality. However, the place was super busy and 3 out of the 5 items of our order were incorrect. Good for quick service but maybe a second or two more and it would have all been...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
