Went to CBC for the Jazz Brunch this last Sunday. Nice building, large space, former mill. Being from Cambridge, I knew what to exspect as far as parking, but was in for a surprise on the inside. The place was practically empty, but that didn't stop the waitress from squeezing all the patrons side by side. She disappeared for about half an hour, then returned to get our order. The she disappeared for another 45 minutes before returning with both our food and drinks. The food was cold, and half my order "would be coming out soon". Another 15 minutes later it did, cold. While all this was happening, a 5 piece jazz band was playing. They sounded and looked like they ran into each other in hallway over at MIT. Bad would have been an understatement. The women singing(?) didn't even use lyrics, but just "skatted" every song. Not even good skatting, she sounded like an animal caught in a trap. The beer was still good, but I could not purchase a growler it being Sunday. I can't fault them for that, but the service, the food and the band are going to make it very difficult for me to convice my wife that "this is probably the best brew pub in Boston". (1,159 characters)

Really cool place with a nice outdoor patio and a really laid back vibe where everyone was welcomed and taken care of by the attentive staff. They had a nice selection of beers, the waiter offered solid recommendations and the food came out quick and hot. Beers were good, my burger was very good and there was no rush to leave or pressure. It was a perfect hangover experience and our waiter was one of the best I've ever had, at any restaurant. Quality place close to Lord Hobo, go to both if you're up in Cambridge, MA, you won't be disappointed. (549 characters)
