Boston Happy Hour: Cafeteria

posted by Katie

What: Cafeteria
Where: Newbury St. (Copley is closest)
Honeys Heart: $5 burgers at the bar

The roomie and I recently met up for a quick dinner at Cafeteria. Cafeteria serves gussied up versions of American classics (their slogan is "tray chic") and they offer $5 burgers at the bar all day long.

Cafeteria is all about using high-quality ingredients and they state proudly that their burgers are made from grass-fed beef. The $5 burgers come with cheddar cheese and Cafeteria sauce, and while they were on the small size, Shannon and I both thought they were quite tasty.

We also tried out the parmesan fries ($5ish). These were good too but there wasn't really enough parmesan sprinkled on the fries to actually taste the cheese. 

Overall, a good place for a quick meal, as long as you are not super hungry.

Portlanders, if Cafeteria sounds good, you might want to try The Original, which takes the concept of upscale cafeteria/diner food one step further. Read our post here.
