Best of Boston

2001 Best Coffee Shop


Warm sun streams into this Charles Street bakery-cum-café’s expansive windows, where the clientele kicks back (sometimes for hours) over high-octane lattes, crumbly slices of walnut bread, and the daily papers. And while you can clearly witness the hustle and bustle outside, it fades as you sink deeper into the shop’s meditative momentum.
