  • EXCELLENT place to get FAT
  • Banana Stuffed French toast are the best a must try .....
  • Fantastic breakfast!
  • Empire Eggs and/or Banana stuffed French Toast - worth the wait!
  • Best chicken soup in Boston, good when you're sick.
  • If you don't mind a line that sometimes spills out the door, you'll be happy to learn that the quest for the perfect Reuben sandwich ends at Zaftigs! Take yours to go if you want to avoid a crowd.
  • pass on the chocolate french toast (meh) - opt instead for the two best things on the menu: empire eggs & banana-stuffed french toast.
  • The hummus platter was great and an AMAZING value for the $7 cost. Wait to sit was much less than estimated.
  • empire eggs ~ an amazing meal!!
  • On the childrens menu, the only thing to color in is a snow man...
  • Bagel chips! Brunch is amazing, but be prepared to wait.
  • banana stuffed french toast topped w/ date butter & fresh berries? ...get ready for the itis!
  • My fav breakfast spot. Can't get enough of the lox and the challah bread French toast!
  • While the breakfast sandwich is excellent, the potato pancakes are the main attraction here. If it is your first time, try the Empire Eggs to hit all the necessary food groups.
  • Every single breakfast item can cause an overdose of chocolate, or sweets, or of sheer yummy goodness. Totally worth it.
  • The fried egg BLT on challah is my go-to breakfast and the hot roast beef sandwich with mushroom gravy is a go-to lunch. This is a can't miss menu overall.
  • Best deli sandwiches. Best half sour pickles. So yummy.
  • Plan on a 45-60 minute wait Saturday and Sunday mornings, *all* morning
  • I love the Empire Eggs. However, now that I found out I have celiac disease I can not enjoy it anymore. They still have a great gluten free menu.
  • Egg benedict with avocado is so good.
