Don’t let Betty Ann’s Food Shop’s façade fool you – it is full of delicious donuts that have been a part of East Boston forever. Everyone raves about the jelly donuts, but all of their offerings are delicious! It is cash only, but for $.65 a donut, just bring your pocket change. Why it’s great: easy to get to, reliable service, and delicious, warm donuts. (At the time of this posting, Betty Ann’s is currently (and sadly) closed due to illness). (Take blue line to Wood Island)

Rino’s Place
248 Saratoga Place, East Boston, MA 02128

Why it’s great: traditional homemade Italian food (homemade pasta and everything!) that’s been a local spot for decades. Rino’s Place is one of the toughest spots to get in to in Eastie so go early, put your name on the list (you might have to wait 2-3 hours on a weekend – they don’t take reservations) and grab yourself a cocktail across the street at the bar with friends.  Zagat rated Rino’s the best Italian food in Boston! Bonus – the meals are not high priced like most of Boston. (Take the blue line to Airport Station)
