Good Place for Sandwiches Near a Picnic Area?

I think she meant Romano's.

Cheese Shop Open in Roslindale Square-Birch Street

The Cheese Cellar is up and coming, with more cheese every time I visit. We've decided it's actually a good deal to buy cheese there, because you can always taste it before you buy it, so you're sure you like it, and you can buy just as much as you want, so you never have to throw out cheese that went hyperbolic in the fridge.
The owners are very nice, and it's such a good synergy with Solera right across the alley. Now all we need in Rossie is a patisserie!

Good Roslindale Takeout?

Second on Yucatan. This is probably our most frequent takeout in Rossie.

Breakfast in Brookline/JP/Longwood area

Centre Street Cafe wins hands down. Just go there. We go there whenever we can. It's busy, and there's usually a line out the door, but they turn over tables as fast as I've ever seen. The food is excellent, with an emphasis on locally-grown ingredients, and the wait staff is probably the best I know of. You can get a cup of coffee if you're waiting in line, and Mark will come out and let you know how long you can expect to wait.

Anyone eaten at The Ginger Pad in Burlington?

I ate there the past two days. How good it is depends on your frame of reference. Compared to our company cafeteria two blocks away, it's excellent. I wouldn't drive there from somewhere else, or compare it with a really good restaurant, but it's a reasonable place to have lunch. 7 bucks will get you a big bowl of noodles and stuff, and it's not bad. The service is efficient - you pay at the cash, take your number to a table and sit down. They bring the food to you. This means you don't have to wait around the counter for your food, get up and go get your food, or wait around for the check. I'll probably go back today.
