Large selection of types of coffee; few food selections but everything is good. Lots of small tables close together. Noisy, energetic. Across the street from Boston Commons and around the corner from the Ritz-Carlton.

We wandered in by accident and couldn't have been more happy. The staff makes you feel welcomed and relaxed. The coffee is fantastic but what we loved the most was their interior design. The old newspaper table tops make for such cute Instagram food pics.

I had some time to kill in Boston between meeting and picked this spot for coffee. It’s a small space but had delicious food and a great coffee. Plus, it’s across the street from Boston Common so you can take your coffee on a walk...More

Cute diner. Breakfast burrito was excellent, not too big of a portion. I had it with sausage was excellent. Good coffee and muffins. Very reasonable price for quality and location.

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
