Well run location. Great service. Quality food. Try the egg white, cheddar, avocado on skinny wheat bagel. Coffee made fresh throughout the day.

I often go to Au Bon Pain. I never eat there, and almost invariably take out. Au Bon Pain's soups are quite good: I particularly like the 12 Veggie soup and the Vegetarian Chili. The cookies and pastries are good too.

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
