July 29, 2013 Cafeteria Boston
Don’t let the name fool you, Cafeteria isn’t an actual cafeteria. Far from it. Located on Newbury Street, the restaurant is jam packed most times of the day. They have indoor and outdoor seating, come early if you want a patio seat – they go quickly. We ordered the Cafeteria Burger – a grass-fed burger with cheddar and Cafeteria sauce on griddled bun ($12). I ordered it with Swiss instead of cheddar, not bad. The fries were amazing – that could have been my meal. They had good crunch, nice texture, good flavor.
Check out the size of this!! The breakfast sandwich with fried egg (we passed on the bacon or sausage) cheese on toasted bun, served with homefries ($8.50) As you can imagine this was a little awkward to eat, but good none the less.
The restaurant was packed, and even though we had made a reservation, we still had to wait a while for a table. Once at the table, service was a bit spotty – we were left with empty glasses for most of our meal. We felt a little rushed with our meal as the waitress dropped the check before we had even finished our meal. We could take it or leave Cafeteria. The breakfast was good, but we have to ask if it was worth the hassle…
