We were looking forward to a nice brunch with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson after visiting the science museum. But the service was slow and the food just average. Very disappointing!

Sitting in Dogwood's backyard, sun shining, baseball on the tv outside for the ones that like to watch, a diverse crowd and a great collection of beers. A great start. We ordered the burgers and our daughter pancakes, all very well prepared and very tasty....More

Good food, service, location after a visit to the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain. Only improvement would be better lighting on the restroom.

There's a separate section for dining and the waitstaff is great...knowledgeable, friendly, there when you need them, but not hovering all the time. The food's fabulous and the portions are huge.

We went to The Dogwood Cafe on a whim from out of town on 4/7/17. We were amazed. Our waitress was awesome. She was taking care of what seemed like every table in the bar area and then some. The place was very busy but...More

Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
