    Lattes are amazing! Pastries change a lot, everything I tried from them was good tho. Sandwiches tasty - fresh breads and all ingredients feel good quality and fresh. Love the place!

    Sweet potato lovers must order the Village sandwich! Love their chai latte - made with housemade chai tea concentrate. They also have excellent breakfast options (housemade granola) and pastries.

    I had the fig toast which I slightly regret as there were so many other amazing looking things on the menu. I loved the place though, really nice atmosphere and the staff are lovely and genuine.

    Great coffee from Pilot and Gimme! Coffee Roasters but the size of the space and crowded seating makes it unpleasant to hang out during rush hour.

    plenty of gluten free options and they take extra care for no cross contamination when making sandwiches for celiacs like me. coffee and food is amazing - worth every penny!

    get a cortado (aka gibraltar) not only for the equally rich flavors of milk and bean, but also for the delicate, adorable glass it comes in.

    Breakfast sandwich might be the best in Somerville. They use tandem coffee which is also a sleeper for one of the best in the new England area.

    Lavender biscuit is a must! Have to definitely give it a try! The cappuccinos are amazing and so are the people who work there. I'm there every week, it's that good! 👍

    Great place to stop and grab coffee/breaky on the go. Pretty small for sit down. But great menu selection for coffee and breakfast sandwiches. Get here early on the weekends!

    Cappuccino is nutty, and slightly chocolatey. Very good. The turkey apple brie sandwich was good. Amazingly friendly baristas!

    Their Greek yogurt & honey is the food of the gods. I don't know what's in it, but it has my taste buds wanting more long after I've licked the bowl clean.

    Get the Greek yogurt if you aren't looking for anything heavy. They make it with honey and granola and it's da bomb.

    Their Market Sandwich is ridiculously good— prosciutto, goat cheese, fig jam, arugula, tomatoes, and herbs.

    The perfect place to have breakfast, but you need to arrive early in the morning due to its popularity.

    Get their egg & feta sandwich. It comes on an amazingly tasty and yet oh so light brioche and it's both tasty and nutritious. Love it.
