Great menu, nice atmosphere. Great New York Style Deli in Boston. A must if you're in the Cambridge area.

Great breakfast. Did not eat any other meal there. It was always full and seemed to have a lot of locals eating there.

I live about a five minute walk from Zaftig's. I've had breakfast, lunch, and dinner there multiple times. Prices are not cheap, but they are reasonable. If you have a craving for true delicatessen food, including items such as pastrami, beef tongue, corned beef, and...More

A group of us went to eat breakfast. Had great food and a wonderful experience. I would definitely go back and encourage other to go. Staff was delightful. We sat at the bar because it was packed on Sunday morning.

Best Jewish Styl Deli in Brookline. We go here every once in a while and always enjoy the food. If you want quality semi-kosher Jewish food, this is a must go!

We dined here on a Sunday evening. Fortunately, not too crowded. We ordered way too much food. The barbecue brisket quesadilla was outstanding and my wife loved the stuffed cabbage appetizer. We also sampled the Mediterranean plate, which had amazing falafel. Our sandwiches with lean...More
