Steeping each of its locations in colonial Boston-style interior design, Boston Coffeehouse serves a modern slew of specialty drinks, deli-fresh fare, and all-day breakfast items. For starters, munch on mango salsa salad, a leafy medley of mango salsa, dried cranberries, almonds, onions, and cucumbers slathered with mandarin ginger dressing ($5.89). Tender rotisserie chicken—served with baby arugula greens, red onions, and sun-dried tomato mayo on a pretzel bun—mollycoddles midday masticators ($6.50), and a french toast breakfast panini eases groggy taste buds awake after a long night or an afternoon nap with fresh egg, cheese, and ham sandwiched between slices of french toast ($3.50). Pair your choice of various Danish pastries, muffins, or croissants ($1.75) with a 12-ounce espresso ($1) or a specialty drink such as the Yankeedoodle, a mocha-based coffee concoction that features caramel, hazelnut, and macaroni feathers ($2.75/12-ounce), or the Nutty Irish Lady, which starts with espresso and expands into a whipped cream-topped comfort drink with flavors of cherry, Irish crème, and hazelnut ($2.75/12-ounce).
Over the last 20 years in business, the staff at Café Perks has mastered the art of eggs. In fact, its breakfast menu kicks off with a plethora of ova options fittingly referred to as an Eggstravaganza. Sharing space with the eggy stars are ham, sausage, gyro meat, and new york steak. Diners in the mood for something sweet can opt instead for griddlecakes or french toast. The restaurant's lunch menu boasts a repertoire of sandwiches, pitas, soups, and salads that make the lunch hour break up the day more effectively than ripping a desktop calendar in half.
Stone's Throw Bistro's menu features fresh, seasonal cuisine complimented by a warm atmosphere and fine wine and beer pairings.

Filet mignon ($23), NY strip steak ($22), and sirloin ($19) are prepared to order with your choice of sauce, side, and cool sunglasses.
