2011 BEST Coffee Shop
Amid the vibeless businesses catering to tourists around the Common, Thinking Cup reminds us of the downtown that Bostonians deserve: grownup, urbane, and a little sexy. Outfitted with a sweeping marble counter and leather banquettes, this newcomer channels an old-school European café while crafting deeply flavorful espressos, lavish Valrhona-chocolate mochas, and mor—all using Oregon’s legendary Stumptown roasts. But the apex of Thinking Cup’s artisanry just might be its Pour Over: a single flawless cup, ground and brewed expressly for you.
