Stopped in on a late Wednesday afternoon. There were a lot of working on laptops and I felt out of place. The barrista did not seem to friendly at first, but after a few moments chatting that changed. I will say that the self serve...More

I love the consistency of Starbucks - I get what I order no matter which one I go into. There are a few Starbucks in Cambridge to choose from and an easy landmark to start out from.

Starbucks is Starbucks, so I'd figured I've give you a heads up as to what else you can find by this one. In the large semi-cobblestone alley-street facing Starbucks is Veggie Planet. Nearby are Fire + Ice and Border Cafe. I think you could def...More
