Time Out says

Opened in 1909, this Victorian styled haunt has held its ground on East Berkeley Street for over a century. Its customers are locals or those in s search of an authentic feeling old Bostonian haunt. The tenderly named J.J. Foley’s Café was once the watering hole for the Boston Herald staff when the newspaper was headquartered nearby. Times may have changed in the South End, and how, but Foley’s certainly hasn’t. Well, that’s not entirely true, in 1909, the menu would not have included nachos, fig and goat cheese pizza, or poutine, but whatever was cooked up iwas very likely served in the same no nonsense fashion.
