I am originally from Brooklyn, and we take pizza very seriously. Since moving to the Boston area, I found the pizza close at times, but no cigarillo, my friends, until my man took me to Pleasant Cafe! I ain't fancy, and neither is The Pleasant,...More

Loved the Place ! 10/10 to our waitress Anne Marie - loved every minute, what a legend! Her service was great, the food was pretty good - what you would expect from an American diner. The atmosphere was great, old but great!
