I love a local diner/deli for breakfast and this is one of those places. Came here 2 mornings in a row while in town for a conference. Both mornings my food was good (and lots of it), the coffee was really good (though not fancy),...More

Great for a sandwich for lunch. Good portions, good food. Pickles are a bit disappointing coming from a sour kosher kinda guy but the rest of the meal is fine. Coffee is the usual deli affair.

As I've branched out to other lunch places, I'm noticing how much more expensive Max's is compared to other sandwich places in the area. Sandwiches start at close to $12 for meat sandwiches - adding bacon adds another $3. Come on! I can go and...More

Great deli shop! The sandwiches are HUGE. My daughter and I both got the pulled pork sandwich and we TOTALLY could have split one. Fast service and great food!

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
