It was a perfect night. We sat upstairs and felt like we were in our living room
Small, quaint cafe offering small & large plates. Chorizo-stuffed bacon wrapped dates were pretty good, but drinks were overpriced and didn’t find them to be very good for what you pay. Glad I gave a small business some service during this pandemic but probably won’t be back.
We happened to be in the Back Bay and decided to have a date after not eating out for a while (we just got vaccinated). It felt amazing to have a lovely dinner without being crowded, and we really enjoyed food and drinks!
Wonderful food and service!
The best mushroom omlette ever! Scotch eggs were great as well.
It was my first time there. Nice and cozy downstairs. Loved it all.
SEB was very overpriced for the quality of the food. Two drinks and appetizer and an entreee for two people came out close to $100. The food was average at best but the atmosphere is solid and the staff is friendly, but I don't think i'll be eating here again
Fantastic. Lots of ambience. Food was fantastic. Service perfect. Drinks well made. And prices more than reasonable.
Great evening for galantines day. Food was amazing.
Ambiance was so so.
Love the cute and quaint vibe of the buttery! Great food and service
Everything from the service to the food and drinks were amazing.
This restaurant is in a quaint Boston neighborhood and had a great vibe. Unfortunately food did not wow us, served Brussel sprouts with everything. Beet Salad had very few beets. But grab some cupcakes on your way out. Homemade and out of this world!
One of my favorite places for brunch! Consistently good food and great service.
Went for our first brunch in months! Awesome bartender, excellent food, just 3 tables. Felt very safe! Definitely be back! Scotch Eggs!
Delicious brunch in a cozy nook next to the fireplace. Got an incredible Bloody Mary and yummy Huevos rancheros. Pastry basket to start. All excellent! Great experience
Booked a table for 6 people and they sat us at a table barely big enough for 4 in what was a service hallway, where they run the food from the kitchen. Service was extremely slow and food was underwhelming.
Alarmingly bad service. Below average food. Don’t go here.
Amazing! Food was delicious, drinks were great, absolutely fantastic.
Lovely neighborhood restaurant with a very welcoming, warm environment. Food was outstanding - as was the menu. Great service from Jesse - we’ll definitely be back!
Food was delicious and a drink menu was great
A little too close for comfort in terms of covid precautions- not likely to go back to dine in during Covid, however the food and drinks are amazing as always!
I havent been for a while, so I can only compare it to two years back, and maybe 2020 took its toll, but this place has hit the slippery slope...now just a very average place to go for brunch, and gone is the special effort to produce first class food....and to crown it all, we bought croissants on the way out, and they crumbles to pieces because they were so stale and dry. This place gets a pass for now, given the situation, but they had better up their game....this was a place that was booked out weeks in advance...now there tables and times galore...Pay Attention management...it looks like I am not the only one who has you on the clock
The food and drinks were great! Service tapered off throughout our meal, but overall it was acceptable.
We sat upstairs which is super cute and has only three tables so the the bar. Our waiter was also the bar tender. He did not acknowledge us sitting there for over 10 minutes. He had an extremely dry and sarcastic sense of humor. However he inserted himself in the conversation multiple times. The service was so slow and it took over an hour to get our egg breakfast dishes. Nobody brought us silverware or plates for our apps. I love the atmosphere and the food is good. However our server and the painfully slow service will prevent us from going back. We will stick with the coffee shop
It was New Years Eve. We decided to dine out early not knowing what the scene would be like. We were lucky to get a reservation at the last minute. A great choice! The food was superb and the service great. Their strict adherence to Covid-19 protocols made for a more relaxed experience.
Great meal! Omelette was amazing. Service was excellent.
The eggs benedict is amazing! The building is beautiful!
Excellent. In the bar area. Bartender/server most congenial and attentive.
We had the best waiter (Jesse?) and essentially a private dining room. We sat at a high top in the bar room. I believe the only other diners were actually his parents. We had excellent, relaxed service with plenty of laughter accompanied by delicious food.
Food was good, drinks were excellent (espresso martini). Our server was fantastic. Personable , attentive and engaging. Can’t remember his name but he worked the back room on 12/12/20
The food was fantastic. I went with their regular breakfast, opting for sausage to be added as well. For being a basic breakfast, consisting of just two eggs, two fairly small pancakes, 2 small sausages, I thought $14 was a bit of a joke. It's saving grace though, was that the pancakes were delicious, not being overly sweet, and the sausages tasted so fresh! They weren't like those 'whatever' diner sausages you get at most places. I will say though, who puts their pancakes, eggs (I got sunnyside) and sausages on a small plate and then expect me to pour maple syrup over everything. Lowkey highkey wack, but, it was tasty! Those truffle fries though, OOMPH THOSE ARE TO DIE FOR! I was OBSESSSSSSSSSED. Also, our waiter was the coolest dude ever. I don't remember his name, but he made us our cocktails as well, and he made the experience even better! P.S. yeah, you guys make a good cup of joe too.
Great Steak for a great Value! I highly recommend it!
Outdoor seating was COVID safe and cozy with the gas towers. Food was excellent. Service was very good.
Delicious brunch and brilliant service. Highly recommend!
Very solid food in terms of flavor. Really good service. Great Value overall!
The food and service wasn't bad. It was cold and the heat lamps weren't close enough to the tables.
We waited a while before being greeted by our server, but other than that, food and drinks were delicious.
Very cute little place. Food and drinks were very good, our waiter was very attentive. Would definitely recommend
What a perfect experience. We sat outside and our server Laila was delightful. She made it look effortless as she went between her tables. We both had the kale and brussels sprout salad with an pouched egg on top...cooked perfectly. The owner came over and said hello and made us feel really special. It was a very nice day and we stayed for a few hours. At no point did they try and rush us out. They even sent a complimentary basked of pastries over. coffee was delicious too...although 3 cups was probably a lot! Great experience. I have been here for dinner and have used them for catering but never breakfast/brunch. Very high recommendations!
