So I had an early appointment in CC and went to Zaftigs after that for brekkies, really looking forward to it - and I do like traditional Delikatessen joints. This it is, if partially more as a motif than genuinely, and with a self-conscious attitude...More

Its been almost a year since our last visit to Zaftigs which was a bit disappointing. I'm happy to say that our recent visit was great as it was the Zaftigs we have grown to love over the last 14 years. The food was really...More

good chicken soup, but make sure you don't get a ton of carrots... lots of variety...prices a bit high..but overall quality is very good. Omelets are delicious, haven't had pastrami-so can't say. Busy on sunday mornings; always crowds and long waits.

I live nearby and Zaftig's has been a local favorite for many years. Honestly, I'm a foodie, and the food is fine but very much like a good diner. Be prepared for waits on weekend brunches, otherwise, a good solid choice for a nice meal...More

Very nice spot in the lively neighbourhood of Coolidge Corner! We found it randomly and discovered a very good place with a cool atmosphere and very good options for breakfast and lunch! Good variety of sandwiches and omelettes, casual atmosphere and good service - plus,...More

Very little meat in my sandwich. Pretty much tasteless. Not sure why it's always so busy. Service is erratic as well.

Zaftigs on Harvard St. is where I like to go for breakfast. They have an extensive all day menu, but breakfast is my favorite. The staff is friendly and their T-shirts are really clever. I also like the art on the walls.

We stopped in for dinner and enjoyed a delicious pastrami sandwich with coleslaw and an order of knishes on the side. All were really good. The sandwich was grilled, but not greasy, and the coleslaw was a great compliment. We were a little disappointed with...More
