If you check in online 60-80 min ahead of time it is great. The 1 inch thick toast, amazing cheese grits and breakfast burritos. The breakfast here is worth the wait as long as the weather is not too bad.

Really nice quirky place happy to get a table as place was very busy the decor is quirky. Waitress was very friendly and gave us some great tips for exploring Boston. The food was delish but a big portion.
