2013 Best Coffee Shop

1369 Coffee House

For two decades, 1369 has embodied the Platonic ideal of a coffee house: marvelous brews, plentiful dessert and sandwich offerings, and ample seating for the cadre of boho Cantabrigians that seemingly come straight from central casting. Already addicted to the complex, fragrant cold-brewed iced coffee, we were thrilled to learn of 1369’s new delivery service: True fanatics can now get a growler of the caffeinated elixir dropped off by bike to their door.
