Restaurants with which you have a love/hate relationship

Blumie | Oct 1, 201109:08 AM

I hate Friendly Toast. I hate the faux kitsch. I hate the bad attitude of many servers (although, in fairness, they have many excellent ones, too). I hate that most of the menu items have one (or more) too many ingredients. I hate that a breakfast place serves such bad coffee. Yet I keep going back. Maybe it's because the food is just good enough and there's no other place (at least that I know of) walkable from mid-Cambridge for a reliable breakfast.

Starbucks is another place that I hate but keep going back to. (Though we're not s'posed to talk about chains on this board!)

What places in the Boston area do you loathe, yet keep going back to?

The Friendly Toast
1 Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA
