We came on a Saturday morning around 8:30. I line was long and the inside was very tight, but they make it work. We waited in lune about 30 minutes, ordered our food, watched it get cooked and then sat down to eat. The banana nutella pancakes with strawberries were excellent and my husband enjoyed his sausage/egg/cheese sandwich. Although the food was very good, I don't think we would come back on a Saturday.

This place gets busy fast, but great food prepared right in front of you. Hit the counter and put in your order, you can’t grab a seat until you have paid. All food was quick and really good. Fun atmosphere.

The line was out the door (about 15-20ppl) & took about an hour to order. You just get in line, then as you order they are immediately fixing your food, then by the time you pay- a table will open up and someone will seat both you & your food at the same time. It's a system that has worked since they opened & still enforced today. The portions are generous for the $, especially in Boston & the selections are great. We ended up ordering 3 dishes to split between the 2 of us because it all looked so good. Some dishes are better than others but overall it is a good deal for the $.

We enjoyed mid-morning breakfast today with no crowd. This quaint eatery is so popular with limited seating, we were lucky to walk in, order and sit in one fell swoop.

I’m always torn between having the mouthwatering waffle or the B.B. pancakes. Today I enjoyed the cakes. Delicious large portion with lots of berries.

I love ordering from the short order cooks. Somehow, the organization of seating works without a hitch. Food was delicious and the queue moves surprisingly fast.
