    The Hubbard Park sandwich is super fresh and flavorful. Get here before the afternoon if you want the delicious 7-grain bread.

    Excellent sandwiches and breakfast. Clunky ordering coffee on one side and sandwiches on the other, but no big deal.

    A uniquely multi-purpose rest stop, Darwin's scores very highly in the breakfast/coffee dimension, the lunch/sandwich dimension, AND on the beer/wine/basic grocery dimension.

    Always been a huge fan of their sandwiches ( Hubbard Park, Sparks, Longfellow, Clubber Lang) but recently discovered their soups. I've had 5+ varieties now and they're all amazing. Give it a try.

    The Kenway is the bomb. This location is a bit smaller than the Cambridge st one, so if you have a large party, head there. Sandwiches are the same, but named differently for local streets.

    Seating can be tough to get- people tend to "camp out". Get the Mt Auburn, Longfellow, or the storey. Their made to order specials are great too.

    The JFK burritos are a bit juicy and drip if you don't eat it correctly. But great otherwise

    A good walking distance from the busy square, Darwin's is a low-traffic alternative cafe workspot with Wi-Fi and comfortable upholstered furniture. Specials are genius, The Longfellow is my fallback.

    Grab a sangwich, all of which are named after nearby streets--I dig the Mt. Auburn--then head just up the road to Longfellow Park to munch.

    Prefer the Longfellow. This spring, watch for the return of Mr. Pudge, an endearingly unkempt and self-actualized sparrow in the little tree out front.
