Bennett's 1815 / The Seedhouse Cafe is located on the intersection of two Vermont country roads. My boyfriend and I discovered it by chance while driving around taking photos of covered bridges. The owners are the most adorable couple with lots of wonderful life stories to tell (ask them how they met!!), and the food they make is outstanding. We supposedly stopped just for a coffee break, but an hour, a few stories, a plate of sausage and warm potato salad, and a slice of peach pie later.... we left promising to come back. The coffee was great too!
Great pastry shop. Hard to decide what to get because everything is yummy! Also, coming from an Italian family, I can confirm that their pastries are the real thing!!!
We found this place pretty much by chance while looking for somewhere to grab a bite before heading to Plum Island! The food is great, the prices are super reasonable. Definitely a great find.
Don't get fooled by tourist traps in the North End. Maria's is the real thing! Their homemade torrone is amazing! The zeppole di San Giuseppe (available ONLY mid to late March) are just outstanding.
I did my laundry there every single week for 7 years. It's safe to leave your stuff in the washer/dryer and just go hang out at a cafe for an hour. They also have good, dependable dry-cleaning service.
The seating is tight, the line/wait is sometimes long, but it's always worth it. I have eaten there a dozen times, and have gotten take out a dozen others. It is super inexpensive for the quality you get. Great masala dishes. Great Indian breads. Excellent palak paneer.
Any of their savory crepes is a full meal. Their sweet crepes are to die for. Don't forget to read their board with specials: you'll find some interesting options there. Their soups are perfect for a cold winter day. Service is sometimes a bit slow at the register (you need to order, pay and then go get a table), but it's worth the wait.
Caf Barada serves simple, excellent-quality Middle Eastern food at super affordable prices. You will enjoy a homey atmosphere and very friendly service. It's also an excellent option for take out!
Tucked away in a run down shipyard in East Boston, Scup's serves excellent breakfast, and an amazing brunch on Sundays (they will soon extend their hours to serve early dinner). There's lots of parking, or you can take a nice walk along the watefront from Maverick Square. Their baked eggs and brioche French toast are from out of this world. Excellent chicken empanadas and peach crisp. Enjoy coffee and mingle with other customers while you wait for a spot in the long picnic table inside and or the picnic tables outside!
I am a patient of Dr. Selim's in his Cambridge practice at Havard Vanguard. He is originally from Argentina, so for me it is great to be able to speak my language when I go to the doctor's. He is a very nice, caring man who truly cares for his patients.
