Sticking to Paleo is tough in a town known for baked beans! This place is bright cheerful, and did not look at me like I had two heads when I asked if they had almond milk for my latte. I then checked out the menu - a very nice selection of sandwiches, and they have a counter of probably 20... More

Visited 3/5/2016. Didn't want a whole hotel breakfast so popped in for a quick coffee and omelette. Wow, had to go for a stiff walk, what a plateful. Everything freshly prepared and so reasonable. More of a take away joint with a few tables, but met our needs and then some. Very friendly and helpful service.

This little spot is around the corner from our hotel. Good sandwiches and breakfast fare. Better for takeout vs eating in. very reasonably priced. I'd go back again.

Lucky for us our airbnb host works near this place so gave us the recommendation and a most excellent find. We wanted lunch after going to the splendid aquarium and had a very tasty home cooked lunch without all the crowds. So much choice and served by friendly, helpful staff at very sensible prices.

This place is really close to the Hilton in the Financial district. In our week stay, we ate here 5 times, it was very good. Also, the drinks are comparable to Starbucks... Which is great!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
