The location of this breakfast and lunch restaurant, very close to the State House in Boston, is great. The name is pretty good. But the quality of the food itself was at the level of three stars. Very friendly staff.

Not the most pretty place in Boston, however they are very quick in serving you and it is useful when you are on the go. Not too expensive and the food offers variety. Price: Under $10 per meal Recommendation: Spanakopita

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
