After speaking at the Greater Boston Labor Council Labor Day Breakfast, President Obama made a quick stop Monday at Union Oyster House, a restaurant that bills itself as the country’s oldest.

When Obama arrived at the seafood restaurant near Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, he was greeted with applause and cheers as he headed upstairs. He went to the raw bar, ordered 10 chowders, and left just before 12:30 p.m.

Air Force One departed from Logan Airport about 20 minutes later.
