End of the Green line by Boston College. This is a wonderful flatbread cafe with the friendliest owner and workers. Lots to choose from and doesn't take more than a minute to make a hot sandwich. There is no seating here, but for the past 20 years they allow you to go to the High Mountain Creamery ice cream parlor... More

OUTSTANDING rollup - fresh and delicious. Service was super fast and super friendly. Even on a crazy game day like today - got in, got out, and enjoyed my sandwich and chips. Great location at Boston College. Go there. Enjoy.

I graduated from BC 25+ years ago and unfortunately I missed out on this great spot which opened just months later. I had the opportunity to stop by for a mere breakfast sandwich this morning and got much more. The steak breakfast sandwich was delicious and the conversation with John, the owner, was warm and genuine. I will be back... More

I have become addicted to flatbreads over the course of my time at BC. There chicken ceasar wrap and the Reuben are delicious. That's all I ever get. They have a buy ten get the 11th free card too. A little pricey but delicious wraps.

Overall, this place met my expectations and was everything I wanted, and more. The food was well prepared, tasty and affordable. I thought the coffee was very average, and I would have liked to have been able to put milk/sugar into it myself. Also, soy milk would have been nice. These preferences are all very minor though and were absolutely... More

Great place to grab a sandwich at lunch. The also provide some of the best customer service that I have ever experienced in a lunch/fast food restaurant. The owner is always friendly and talkative, and I have never seen anyone make a sandwich as fast as the one young man who works there. Someone else complained here that they don't... More

I have been a customer of this restaurant for several years and have always admired the proprietor's generosity and sandwiches. The menu has a number of unique combinations and are always tasty. No seating available, but this is strictly a take-out place. It is what is and it is yummy.

Once was all I needed and I knew this place was abysmal. Its a subshop that does not do subs. They do Flatbreads which is just an excuse to charge $3.00 more for far less food. Its not even fresh it was all frozen or pre-cooked. My Meatball sandwhich was so pre fabricated I could have bought a better one... More
