Sandwich Place
$$
“This tiny, unpretentious sandwich shop’s name says it all. Breakfast and lunch are the only options here, but when homemade soups, pressed sandwiches, and bagelwiches taste this good, who needs dinner? Just across the street from Boston Medical Center, Blunch is a popular destination for med students, faculty, and staff (you can even call in your order ahead). Try the Giving Tree, a scrumptious combination of smoked turkey, cheddar cheese, shaved green apples, honey Dijon dressing, and greens on multigrain bread, and top it off with one of the eatery’s oh-so-gooey triple chocolate chip cookies.”

Cafe
“Seemingly unlimited coffee flavor options, all brewed coffees. Coffee & mocha (sweeter). We usually go for iced and a "bucket" sized option. Some of our favorite flavors include Banana Hazelnut, PS Special, Cinnamon Hazelnut, Chocolate Covered Strawberry, Winter Wonderland (seasonal around the holidays and just a delight) There is a credit card minimum ($10), so be sure to have cash on hand if you are only getting one coffee or something small. ”
