For many years this has been one of my favorite places in Boston. What's not to love about a place that combines two of my favorite things in the world -- food and books! They have delicious breakfast things, smoothies, sandwiches, and my favorite -- the cashew chili. They have desserts and teas and all sorts of things, but it's not just a snack cafe but rather a place to get a meal. The book store itself is small compared to today's mega shops, but they have good buyers and a good and thought-provoking selection. They also have a huge and quirky magazine selection. Hours of fun can be had here. Very quick walk from Hynes T stop. Very fair prices, too.
