Waitstaff was lovely, and I would go back because of them, but the waffles were especially underwhelming, no hint of vanilla or lemon, or any flavor at all, so I would not recommend them. The cream puff was perfect, as were the apple turnovers. Our...More

Love this place! Delicious breakfast and lunch options. The bakery goods are great and honestly the best fruit cups. Everything always seems fresh. I highly recommend and I also have a reminder that this place is packed during many weekend hours.

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
