We ate here this morning and had an awesome experience. We did the call ahead on Yelp and only had about a 5 minute wait when we showed up. Super efficient and friendly staff. We had Nate as our server, and he was just awesome....Made great recommendations, was quick, friendly, and just made the whole experience enjoyable. 10/10 recommend this place. We had all the different bloody marys, the Irish Benedict, the monster breakfast, and the donut breakfast sandwich, all of which were delicious.More

Nathan was our server and he was awesome. Fantastic recommendations and very friendly service. We had the doughnut sandwich, Irish Benny and husband had the monster breakfast with French toast. Everything was delicious. Highly recommend the pickle bloody! The wait time was long but we...got on the call ahead list on yelp which was really convenient. Saved us having to wait outside for too terribly long.More

Sat in "bar" which turned out to be underground extension of restaurant. Could have been cool, but instead it was loud and just off kitchen. Gluten free pancakes were rubber. Omelet was greasy. One server (who was excellent) for entire room. Left feeling coated in...fry oil.More

Tasty breakfast. Had the hash quiche. Sat at the bar. My server was Amy, who was friendly and helpful. My food arrived in minutes and was delicious. Be warned - I got here around 8.15am on a Sunday, thinking it would be quiet. It was...already very busy. Highly recommended.More

Way above our expectations. We came for late breakfast. From the moment we saw the beautiful front door we were please. Sam our waitress made our day. She was so good. Answered all of our questions and her recommendations were so so delicious. The quality...of the food, the service and the decorations are all 5 stars. If you come to Boston this place is a must !!! Will definitely return before we go back to Miami.More

Excellent breakfast - make sure you go early or make a reservation as it is very popular and line ups are common. It’s a very family friendly and fun breakfast and brunch spot! We loved the chicken and waffles, likewise for the Sklarmageddon omelet and...the pancakes! The drinks we had like Simply the Zest was really big but not the best taste.More

The service and breakfast were excellent. Nate did a fantastic job taking care of us. The French toast was light and fluffy and the omelette was full of meat and cheese. We were there on a weekday but I imagine weekends are packed. Will come...again next time we are in town.More

Great food. Prepare for a bit if a wait. We sat in the bar, which was down in a basement area and was a quicker seating option. Great cocktails. The decor and vibe is really cool, like an 80s party.

The Chicken and Waffles here are absolutely amazing, closely followed by the sharing platter that does allow you to try a bit of everything. Friendly staff, good mimosas too!
