Stopped here for a cup of hot tea before the ballet. Bought a travel mug and the woman working the register threw the tea in for no cost.

We went to the Boston Common Coffee Company several times whilst we were staying at the nearby Hyatt and always had a good coffee and received good service. Comfortable place to sit, nice relaxed atmosphere.

Grungy version of the rather elegant nearby cafes this loud locale is a barely ok place to wait for shows nearby. Oh, it’s crowded too. Go to cafe Nero or Thinking Cup. Though friendly server gave it its third star.

We came before a show at the opera house and made the mistake of coming here instead of the thinking cup which is much nicer. It has way too loud music and is relativly dirty. Would not recommend.

Very individual. Excellent coffee, very helpful staff and a willingness to accommodate our breakfast wishes (which were not menu items).

We came for breakfast since our hotel did not include it. I had a delicious sandwich but they did not cater well for gluten free. This is more of a fast food place than a sit down breakfast restaurant.

Convenient coffee shop right off the common. Good coffee and scones. Plenty of space inside to stay and enjoy or take over to the common/garden to enjoy with people watching. Super nice staff!

Good coffee. I found the baristas to be friendly though not overwhelmingly so. I believe they are selling Ethiopian or Sumatran beans, I wasn't specific but I find those two to be fairly winey in taste and not to my liking though it seemed fairly...More

This place was just round the corner from our hotel and we visited every morning for breakfast. Good value, excellent food and good choice!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
