    We're not sure which is more impressive - the famous toffee cookies, piled-high sandwiches, carefully crafted coffee or the incredible knowledge of Pavement's baristas. Either way, it's worth a visit Read more

    Comfy chairs, pro baristas and delicious bagel sandwiches. Try a Tequila Sunrise on a whole wheat everything bagel, and grab a seat for a while (if you can find one.)

    Counter Culture coffee/espresso bevies and tasty teas (matte latte's a winner) but for true coffee lovers go straight for the featured made-to-order slow bar. Free wifi (1hr limit!) and comfy seating.

    Cute decor. Fun bagel names... Try the vegan tequila sunrise. Note: ask for your coffee to come out with the bagel, otherwise you'll have no sips left while you eat.

    "Good for Work/Study" - 3 Stars, "Food & Service" - 3 Stars. The place is spacious but is very busy at times . It is a challenge to find a seating during rush hour. Good food selection.

    Best food deal: $3.85 Sunrise (egg/ham/cheese) Bagel sammie! Get it for breakfast, lunch or dinner any day! Tuna Melt for $6.50 is pretty stellar too.

    Free WiFi, a great space to hang out and solid coffee drinks to boot. Oh and their pastries are great too! What's not to love?

    The awakening breakfast sandwich with a chai latte is an excellent combo! The chai isn't too sweet and you can taste all of the spices.

    Come for the espresso, stay for the unexpectedly awesome sandwiches. Try the Wrangler--the best roast beef sandwich I've ever had.

    " Work/Study Experience " - 3, "Food & Service" - 3. This Pavement House has average space but gets very busy during the afternoon and can be challenging to find a seat. WIFI is limited to 1 hour.

    Great coffee. Great bagels. Warm and inviting atmosphere and decor. Fast coffee service, but very slow panini and bagel service. I had to try and not finish my coffee before my bagel was done.

    this location is significantly better than the one on gainsborough, but still very expensive & subpar brewed coffee and cold brew. espresso drinks are decent and food is pretty good

    Wow, never would've guessed a vegan scone could be the best scone I've had in Boston. Would come back just for this and the yerba mate latte.

    The Spanish Latte may change your life. (The Sunrise -- breakfast sandwich -- is also an excellent way to start your day)

    The Tequila Sunrise sandwich on a Spinach bagel and a Spanish Latte? I just found my new place to take a relaxing break between classes. I'll never sit in that overcrowded Mass Ave Starbucks again!

    Spanish latte is so yummy! But it's made with whole milk and sweetened, condensed milk so not low-calorie.

    No more hot apple cider, but it's still on the menu. There goes the only reason why I visit. Not enough seating, half the time missing ingredients, and staff always too busy chatting? I'm done.
