    One of my favorite coffee shops in all of Greater Boston. Cool vibe, great menu, and awesome space between the open air in the Summer and pool tables in the back.

    Don't think about using WiFi unless you bring your own hotspot or $7! They freakin' charge for internet access! Once spent $12, then learned this fcuked up fact...refund & left. No WiFi? Kiss my a$$!

    Great coffee, great sandwiches, I liked the Branch-Tomsho. It's a huge space that can get pretty loud, so not always the best place to get work done. Have to love the industrial aesthetic though.

    Delicious chai lattes and a super friendly atmosphere. Beware on Sundays. It gets packed.

    They recently changed their tea line (from Mem to Kilogram), so I'm not fond of their Thai tea anymore.

    If you want it hot, get the mocha latte. If you want it iced, get the mocha *au lait*.

    I'm still at a loss why people rave about this place. The espresso drinks are painfully average (Starbucks quality), and the sandwiches nearly broke my teeth. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong.......

    Little Piston sandwich is the best. I came here for the photo booth and the pics came out funky, so beware--but they let me try twice and gave me my money back too, so it was worth it!

    Though a little expensive, the green tea latte was by far the best drink I've ever gotten in a cafe

    Great sandwiches. They can make them vegan. They added extra spinach to my tofu wrap instead of the cheese.
