Best of Boston
2002 Best Coffee Shop
A Somerville fixture from the days when Davis was still square, this terminally bohemian café is beloved by an increasingly yuppified local populace that prefers pastries and strong java served by dreadlocked, patchouli-soaked hippies over caramel macchiatos from that Seattle coffee chain. The cozy shop blares alternative rock, sports a gallery of ratty, mismatched seating—including a schoolroom desk and a red velvet lounge booth—and has become a living room extension for tea and coffee connoisseurs of every stripe. Situated next to the Somerville Theatre.
