Best of Boston

2014 Best Coffee Shop


For many, “grabbing a cup of coffee” means getting your buzz on fast. Render will encourage you to slow down and enjoy the process: All hot coffees are meticulously prepared using the pour-over method, which takes a few minutes per cup. It’s worth the wait for these, or the expertly pulled espresso drinks starring Counter Culture and Gracenote beans. If time is truly unlimited, have a seat and partake in the WiFi, the outlets, and the phyllo-crusted house-made quiche.
