Okay here’s some of the places where we had lunch, dinner, coffee or dessert while in Boston and Cape Cod … the good and the bad … our opinions. I've already written about the Mom and Pop Pizza place, Santarpio's Pizza (a Must), The Black Rose, Warren Tavern (another Must) and the Union Oyster House in previous blogs about Boston so I won't include any of those again here. Some of these are definitely a Must!!!
|Oh gosh ... who doesn't recognize this sign? If you are a Starbucks|
fan ... they are everywhere in downtown Boston.
|Here's the view while you dine!!! Be a-u-ti-ful!|
|I had the Shrimp, Scallops & Broccoli in a White Sauce and served in the pan they cooked it in.|
The pasta is homemade and it was obvious ... so so so good that I ate it all, seriously!
|Streets in Little Italy ... do not try to drive in Boston, traffic is heavy |
and little to no parking plus parking is expensive ... its a walking town.
|Hubby's Brownie ... it was ginormous!!!|
|My White Chocolate Cashew Caramel (brought a couple of these home).|
Sorry but no pic of my Traditional Cannoli as I had eaten it before I realized I didn't take a pic.
It was BEST I've had in a long while! Actually craving one right now!
|You cannot tell from this pic but depending on day of week (Saturday's seemed to the be worst)|
the lines for this place and Mike's across the street can extent way down the block.
Worth the wait!!!
|Okay this place is just across the street from Modern Pastry and down a bit and|
we did try it and it was good but we all preferred Modern Pastry.
Again ... Cash Only!
|Caffe Vittoria also in Little Italy on Hanover Street. We loved this place (that's why so many pics) |
and we would have gone again had it worked into our schedule.
A MUST if you love Italian Coffee, Liqueurs or Gelato.
|I was in love with all the old Cappuccino machines and coffee urns.|
|My Caffe Mocha ... it was soooo good!|
|Saw this AFTER I'd ordered my coffee ... dang!|
Thought we'd get a chance to go back for one of these but we didn't.
|Hubby's Banana Gelato ~ yummmm|
|I wish we had a great Italian coffee shop here ... I'd be there all the time!!!|
|Our Bruschetta ... yummmmm|
|My Lobster Ravioli ... this pic doesn't EVEN do it justice!|
|I forget the name of Hubby's dish but this was it. So much food and so good |
we had leftovers for breakfast (seriously) the next morning!!!
|We ate here in Plymouth, MA ... found via Yelp.|
I had the Lobster Bisque (not best I've ever had but it was good) and
Hubby had the Lobster Roll which he shared with me.
It was sort of pricey for lunch but was good and we had an awesome water view.
|Clean "old diner" sort of place!|
|Found this place somewhere in Cape Cod, the people were friendly, food was good|
and there's a cute little souvenier shop next door with reasonable prices!
|This place is a treasure and we found it by accident on our last day in Boston.|
So glad we did but we wish we had found it sooner.
|Its located in Little Italy on Hanover Street and down a little grocer's alley.|
|We literally followed the smell of fresh baked bread!!!|
|Sandwiches are made to order and they are quick ... |
fresh bread, handmade cheese and freshly cut meats ...
oh and they are huge, Hubby and I shared one.
|Their Homemade jarred Red Sauces.|
|Stuffed Italian Peppers.|
|Look at all that fresh homemade Pasta ... the blue boxes are imported Pasta,|
same brand "DeCecco" we always buy ... very good.
|Fresh Octopus in Olive Oil ... not so sure I could do that but this Italian man saw|
me eyeing it and said (in his very heavy Italian accent) "very good ... octopus
with a bit of fresh bread and a glass of vino, perfect meal"
|This place is a Must ... you have to look for it though.|
Again ... its in Little Italy on Hanover Street and down a grocer's alley!
|And obviously its won many great reviews!|
|Here's what it looks like from the street! Look for it and go!!!|
We loved Boston and had lots of great eats!!!
