What to Eat in Boston

Updated June 27, 2020.

Will travel for food! Boston has some pretty iconic eats, so on my recent getaway to “Beantown,” I had to try and eat them all! Well, except the baked beans. I have to save something for next time!

Post-6.9 Mile Run Refreshment Day 1

I scheduled a fantastic running tour through historic Boston for my first morning there, and by the time we finished, I was exceptionally thirsty! Solution:

Refueling to face the day!

Breakfast Day 1

And after that long run, I needed some significant protein. My running guide, Brendan, recommended Clover Food Lab on School Street, and it did not disappoint! I got the “Impossible” Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Sandwich and Hibiscus Iced Tea. The impossible sausage is a vegetarian product that supposedly tastes like sausage. I did not taste the similarity, bit overall it was a hearty, protein-packed breakfast!

Filling and Refreshing

Lunch Day 1

What’s one thing you have to eat in Boston? Lobstah! And what’s the best way to enjoy your Bostonian lobster? It’s certainly up for debate, but personally, I enjoy a good lobster roll! This one came from Maine and Boston Lobster Company inside Quincy Market, and I threw in a mango juice, too!


Dinner Day 1

With only one real dinner opportunity, plus the fact that I was staying at the Omni Parker House, I had to have a dinner at the Parker House Restaurant! I had four Bostonian Classics:

Parker House Rolls
Clam Chowder (also: “chowdah”)
Boston Baked Schrod
The Original Boston Cream Pie

Breakfast Day 2

BLT on a bagel? With egg and cheese because it’s breakfast? Sign me up! With a fantastic iced coffee? Even better. This one came from Boston Comm Coffee Co., just a couple of blocks from historic Boston Common.

BLTCE: Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato with Egg and Cheese

Beverages Day 2

It was hot in Boston when I was there! I left my water bottle at home (whoops!), so I took advantage of the excuse to have a ton of teas, juices, coffees, and more beverages that I wouldn’t normally have! Aside from the beverages I had with the meals above, I enjoyed these refreshing choices:

New “Trenta” size Passion Tango Tea from Starbucks (30 ounces)
Iced Green Tea with Strawberry and Pomegranate from Ziggy’s Coffee
I went into a juice bar and quickly realized that I could not have any fresh-squeezed juice. Why? I’m allergic to carrot juice, and they juice all fruits and veggies through the same juicer! They offered to clean it, but I didn’t want them to take the time–there were people behind me ready to order! So I got this “Hint” water instead!
Crimson Tea from Sip Cafe at Leventhal Park
Ginger Peach Tea from Sweet Bakery on School Street. Don’t go here. This was the worst thing I drank the whole time!

  1. […] Will travel for food, am I right? The Boston Cream Pie was invented at the Parker House Hotel (not the Omni Parker House), and it is the official dessert of the State of Massachusetts! You will find them in bakeries all over the city, but the original can be had at the Parker House Restaurant inside the hotel. Worth it. Check out everything I ate in What to Eat in Boston! […]

  2. […] that’s interesting for everyone! Spend a day exploring the Freedom Trail, eat an authentic Boston Cream Pie, and if you’re baseball fans, plan the trip when the Red Sox are in […]
