Wagshal's is great I have been coming here for years. The new little restaurant they have put on the back of their Mass Ave place is perfect for morning coffee and a bite to eat. Service is also really nice and attentive.

Sandwiches are great, they make most of their corned beef / pastrami etc. in-house. This place is highly recommended for quick lunch. They offer sit down service at the back of the store.

I have been going to this Wagshals location for many years. They recently expanded into the space next to them which really helped. This "out of the way" mini shopping center is great for those that live nearby but also for those that use Massachusetts...More
