What You'll Get

Whether seeking mashed-potato revenge on the girl with great hair or trying to sprout a mustache of your own, access to an abundance of food is imperative. Fuel your body and spread some temporary condiment on your upper lip with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of food at Cafeteria Boston, located in the heart of the Newbury Street dining scene.

The menu at Cafeteria Boston is undeniably more extensive and sophisticated than traditional cafeterias—all dishes are prepared fresh, many with organic and locally sourced ingredients, and there’s nary a discolored string bean, rubbery hunk of yesterday’s pizza, or weird A/V club guy to be seen. For brunch, try the frittata ($10), a crust-less quiche packed with juicy tomato, fresh basil, and mozzarella, or a roasted-beet salad ($11) that's all gussied up with arugula, pecans, and Vermont goat cheese. Italian-infused dishes such as pizzas ($10–$13) populate the dinner menu, as well as an impressive assortment of salads ($12–$17), sandwiches ($8–$12), burgers ($12–$15), entrees ($14–$25), and plates du jour ($18.50). Try the roasted organic spring chicken ($22), served with mashed potatoes, horseradish slaw, and au jus for a fancy café feast, or share slices of the lamb-sausage pizza ($13), served with fontina and roasted fennel, to secure fast friends or earn ovine enemies.

Spy on sidewalk passersby through Cafeteria's expansive windows, or sit outside and take in the killer corner view of Newbury and Gloucester. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Cafeteria stays open until 1 a.m. for bar food, though this Groupon is not valid toward alcohol. Round up your old clique and host a sophisticated reunion, or gather friends for feasting before your annual reenactment of the Revolutionary War's food fights.


Cafeteria Boston’s been buzzed about in the Boston Globe, and Citysearchers give it three stars:

  • The most notable thing about Cafeteria is its cork decor. The seats are cork upholstery. The backboards behind tables are the same fitted cork material. – Meredith Goldstein, Boston Globe
  • LOVED IT…Place was fun, hip, trendy and a good-looking crowd. – GIGli, Citysearch
  • It was different from other newbury offerings. It was chill and the food was reasonably priced for what you got. The hamburger was great and so was the pizza. – Orry, Citysearch
