    Breakfast sandwiches are great. Atlantic Eggs Benedict is excellent but pricy.

    This adorable retro diner is off the beaten path for BU students but it's definitely worth the hike--try the Princess or the Basket Case in honor of the classic John Hughes movie.

    The place to go when you need that 1980's flair. When you go, you absolutely MUST try 'The Princess', a Belgian waffle topped with FRESH fruit, and real whipped cream. When you cover it in maple syrup
