    Okay place to study. Be prepared to need to wear headphones. And no outlets unless you want to sit at the tiny counter top.

    Flat white is ok, just ok.

    Great little neighborhood coffee shop. Yummy pastries. Like to go for coffee, snack, and people watch.

    Good coffee place, with good bakery options that's open until 10pm, but no wifi. Bummer.

    One of the few places you can get Stumptown coffee beans to go in Boston. Check the roast date on the bags though because they’re always as fresh as you might expect.

    Solid pourover coffees from Portland's Stumptown (now owned by Pete's Coffee as of Oct. 2015). Pastries from local bakeries are middling/average in quality, but decent if you have a sweets craving

    This place is the ideal cafe. There is not a single deficiency, not a single thing that can be improved. Best chai I have ever had, and they have Nutella croissants.

    Yum. The coffee was great, but so was their Boston cream pie. I've never had one so good. Perfectly creamy and not too sweet.

    The Barcelona Bliss sandwich will take your tastebuds to climax... No kidding. Well that and make you long for Italy. The Hazelnut Latte is coffee perfection. I love this place!

    Came here mid-afternoon on a Friday and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of available seats. Prefer this location over their other ones on Newbury and Boston Commons.
