Foursquare Tips

  • Owned by dog people and frequented by people with dogs. Look for the neat little hook for leashes just to the left of the door as you walk in. I love the turkey club....
  • Unfortunately, there isn't wifi at this otherwise great coffee shop.
  • Don't miss the Avocado toast
  • Great for to-go options. They have the best cold brew iced coffee on this side of the Charles.
  • Get a table in the back to avoid the constant draft on cold days.... Then order a cortado.
  • Some favorites from our review: grilled cheese and tomato, the meatloaf sandwich, and for dessert the lemon raspberry rose cupcakes.
  • Prepare to wait for your order
  • The meatloaf is a godsend... Well, if you like loads of meat
  • They have an amazing Avocdo toasts
  • Best neighborhood place for morning coffee and people watching. Grab an outside table if the weather is good
  • Great coffee and wonderful scones
  • macaroons are yummy
  • Have I mentioned this turkey chili? LOVE!
  • The oatmeal terrine is like manna from heaven.
  • Wow! Try the Butterscotch scone for the ultimate scone experience.
  • Best lunch and brunch in the south end and maybe in all of Boston. Definitely try the Veggie Burger and the Curried Chicken Salad Sandwich. There's always a great vibe in the place.
  • Food wise it's good. Coffee not so much.I love their parm- garlic fries. ( warning it has lots of garlic)Their baked goods are good, but too big for my liking so I share them.
  • They open at 6:30 am but don't serve pancakes and French bread until 10:00 am
  • a favorite neighborhood spot for a quick coffee and pastry or cozy dinner downstairs.
  • Given the reviews I thought I would be blown away by the brunch. Same menu you will find anywhere else. Nothing stands out as really unique except the wait.
