I really like this place because the people in here are amazingly polite. They feel like family to me and the warmth that they radiate is just so comforting and soothing.

I love this place! They have so many great sandwiches. I tried their egg salad sandwich the last time that I was here and it was fantastic to the crust.

Food was filling and marginally better than Denny's. Atmosphere clean and lively, if lacking in windows in many areas due to expansion of the restaurant into neighboring buildings. The kicker was that an old friend (who I hadn't seen in

I recently moved away from Inman Square, the home of this cozy and wonderful restaurant, and I'm going to miss being so close to it. Everything that I've ever had on the menu is great, from the Monte Cristo to the omelettes. This place has been around since 1918 and I'm pretty sure it has been owned by the same family the whole time. Check it out if you're in the area!

S & S is a delicious restaurant that offers breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner, and desserts. My personal favorite is brunch. (I could eat brunch for every meal, really.) S & S makes delicious omelettes in several varieties, all except one for $9.95; which also include home fries, fruit, and a bagel with cream cheese. Not a bad deal! S & S is also widely known for their deli specialties (lox, whitefish, cheese blintzes), french toast, and pancakes. You really can't go wrong. Finish it up with a signature cocktail, e.g., bloody mary, mimosa, or bellini, and you have a truly delicious brunch!

While the place is pretty busy on the weekends, the wait is worth it. The restaurant is very reasonably priced for the quality of food. I have gone in a large group and they have been able to accommodate us, which shows a lot about a place, even in the most busy times.

S&S is a great place if you want a nice, cozy homestyle meal. I had some of the best potato pancakes at S&S. The value is great, location is perfect. Parking leave a little to be desired, but it's Cambridge, what can you expect!

S&S strikes me as a well-oiled machine. They can get pretty busy on the weekends, but they know how to manage, and so it's reliably fast. But one thing that really bugs me is that the machine-like attitude can be really rigid. For example, they don't allow substitutions ?? any. In fact, my server was once downright disparaging towards me even just for asking. The thing is, you get tons of food with your delicious omelet, but sometimes you don't want a bagel plus fruit salad with your eggs, you know what I'm sayin'? Too bad, because they have to keep up "the inventory." All said and done, though, the Bavarian French Toast tempts me quite often and I periodically wake up dreaming about their omelets on weekends. For me, it's a good stand-by when I don't feel like walking any farther or waiting very long for seating.

An Inman Square favorite since 1919, S&S serves the most popular weekend brunch in Cambridge. Delicious offerings include the boursin cheese omelet stuffed with spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes; homemade potato pancakes; and sage & thyme-flavored country sausage. Named after founder Ma Edelstein?s Yiddish saying ?Es and es? (eat and eat), S&S also specializes in traditional deli food. Try the Reuben on rye loaded with lean corned beef; the hearty matzo ball soup; or the smoked whitefish platter that comes with a bagel slathered in cream cheese. Dinner entrees also sparkle, including the juicy N. Y. sirloin steak and great veal parmigiana. You can also get chicken anyway you want ? skewered, stuffed or roasted. With its large windows and light wood paneling, this bright eatery is very modern. But it also pays tribute to its 80-year-old past with pictures of Inman Square?s history.

Their other food options, sandwiches, pasta, etc. are fine. But brunch is definitely worth any wait. They offer great portions with delicious food. In the fall they have pumpkin spice pancakes, which are so good! The service is usually ok, thought during brunch the servers are extremely busy. During that time, you may have to wait a little longer than usual for drink refills, etc.-- but it is still worth it.

This place is the worst!! If you've ever been to Rein's Deli in CT you're quite mistaken if you think your embarking on the same venture. They may have the same look and feel (sort of), but the food is subpar. I only ordered the pastrami sandwich- which is the staple of any great Deli. It was literally the worst sandwich I have ever had!! The marble rye bread came thinly sliced and not toasted or grilled? How is this supposed to support the fattiest pastrami ever served?? Well lets just say it didn't. Immediately upon trying to pick it up- the bread so soaken completely fell apart. It was merely hanging on by a thread w/ the one small piece of swiss cheese that wasn't even melted! Save your time and money and the next time you're in CT experience what a real deli should be like.

One of the worst service I have ever experienced. Management and the waitstaff are more interested in a high turnaround for each table than attending to their customer. I definately would not reccomend this to anyone.

The S&S was good 2 years ago. Recently the quality of the food has slid downhill. Was such a great place for a meal, sorry to see it decline.

Pros: Good location

Cons: , poor service

Lunch and dinner are fine at S&S, but brunch is really the meal to go for. Start with the delicious warm cinnamon rolls, then dig into any of the excellent omelettes, the stuffed french toast, or the corned beef hash and eggs. Yum!

And go early, or be prepared to wait.

For Sunday brunch there's a reason the line goes out the front door. The S&S simply does breakfast the best - it's delicious. But the really great secret about the S&S is that breakfast is available anytime of day.

Pros: great parking, great value, great bloody mary's

Cons: Service can be slow, Everything else makes, up for it

I suggested this place after work one day because my dad raves about their wings. The food was great, didn't take long and the waitress was very pleasant. They have a good amount of booths, so it would be a nice place to bring your kids also.

I went here after reading some positive reviews but was
sorely dissapointed. After waiting 35 minutes for my meal I was informed that another waiter had taken my meal and that one would be rushed. I was unable to get the type of coffee I ordered and when the meal arrived it was a pitiful resemblence compared to the same meal other guests had ordered. I left the place an hour later hungry.

Lines are long but worth the wait. I use to eat there all the time and moved. Not so easy anymore, but honestly I wish I was closer still. People are friendly, prices are reasonable and the food soooooo delicious! Hey for those who like breakfast for dinner they serve breakfast all day! I give it a 10!!!!!!!

You will eat and eat at this great place to take your family. There is plenty of space for sitting, and plenty of choices for eating. It's homey food, good for kids and adults alike. The atmosphere is inviting and warm, especially nice on a sunny day because of all the windows on the street from which to watch the good people go about their business in Inman square. The only down point for me is that I've moved too far away to get over there to dine any time again soon!

For 10 years, I lived down the street from the S&S and it was the best thing around to get for a quick dinner. The turkey club is my favorite, and don't forget about the pickles and fries (They're a must)!! The S&S is a great place to meet up with friends, and is fairly inexpensive. I'd recommend it to anyone.
