We found Thornton's staff to be excellent, friendly, efficient and cheerful. The food is adequate and acceptable but just average and not up to the hype that surrounds the restaurant. We visited on two days and were a bit disappointed both times.

This was a short walk from our hotel, Marriott Copley Place,. Very informal, good food, good wait staff. We went for a late breakfast. Everyone liked their meal, from chocolate chip pancakes, Belgian waffle, eggs over easy, to eggs Benedict. All tasty and served quickly.

This place is excellent with a breakfast to suit everybody with healthy stuff as well as big platefuls but it is popular so beware you may have to queue for 10 minutes to get in. it is worth waiting for and very good value.

Good food, fast and friendly service. What more could you want for breakfast before starting a day of sight seeing? French toast was very good. The fruit plate was amazing (an entire dinner plate of very fresh fruit). Prices were reasonable. When in the back...More
