    Awesome Place for brunch on the weekends, having fresh food makes all the difference. Its one of the few places I've had an eggs benedict I liked. That and the Mediterranean omelette are awesome.

    Great location+food+happy hr+staff+patio seating! All these greats, make Cafe Boa an ideal place for singles or dates. If single, go during happy hr & sit at bar or long table (for maximum exposure).

    We had the Voodoo Penne and Fettuccine Saltimboca w Sweet Breads. Pasta was fresh and fantastic. Don't load up on the fries. Although they were really good. Pumkin Spice Macaroons were a nice bite.

    Excellent wine (Malbec). The Pinot was ok. Not Boa's fault, just my faulty pairing choice. Happy new year and bring on the spicy

    The food is delicious, the wine list is wonderful and the service is great. One complaint: I went in June and it was way too hot inside, 87 degrees!

    Expensive, but definitely worth it. The menu changes often, usually when they get a new specialty chef in so there's always a fantastic variety of options.

    Caprese is AMAZING. Definitely a great snack in terms of size though--be sure you're in the mood for something light.

    Their cheese and charcuterie platters are a must. Our waiter was very helpful and informative on all the dishes.

    The new menu is pretty much amazing. Had the fettucine with sweetbreads and sage cream and it went perfectly with the "bloodstone" australian shiraz.

    Gratuity is automatically calculated in the bill, which explains why the service couldn't possibly get any worse...
