Visited late AM so some had the generous breakfast option and another lunch. Select ite, order and served at your table this simple but packed spot across from the water is a reasonable and fun option to the more expensive alternatives.

Nice little pace near the water. Breakfast omelet was very tasty, with healthy portions, at an affordable price. Food is served on paper plates, so you can dine in or carryout.

Went for breakfast. Fantastic. Order made quickly and served hot! Home fries were delicious! Had Italian bread for toast. Nice change from the normal wheat and rye.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
