I read many positive reviews about this restaurant, especially its breakfast. So it seemed a sure thing. Not quit! The scrambled eggs were dry and rubbery, the hash-browns were pasty and the pancakes, definitely not home made. While the portions were more than generous, a...More

We were looking for brunch and there was a wait at Thornton's when we arrived, but the line moved relatively quick. There was a great selection of food and the servings were plentiful and delicious. The prices were very reasonable for the location in Boston.

We visited for the first time and the breakfast was great. Omelette was superb and my husband’s Belgium waffle was wonderful. I can’t believe we’ve missed this place on our previous visits. It will now be our go to place for breakfast in Boston!

On our vacation to Boston, we decided to return to Thornton's for breakfast. Six guests became 8, then 10, but our wonderful and skilled server just took it in stride. Each meal was creative and tasty... I had the scrambled eggs with prosciutto and provolone......More
