I loved my visit here. The Americano was great. Lots of flavor but not over powering. Very smooth as well. The Sunrise was great. Stop here!

If you want a good espresso coffee/latte, this is the place to go. Wifi is also a bonus. The cafe is buzzing with friendly students and the muffins are good too.

Excellent lunch! We split the Californian Bagel sandwich and Roasted Root Salad -- both of which were excellent. Fresh ingredients. Great flavors. Friendly staff and great coffeehouse atmosphere. Will definitely be going back next time I am in town to visit my daughter at Northeastern!

Found this cafe just down the way from Hilton. Breakfast bagels, granola with yoghurt and fruit plus lattes were good and filling.

Stopped in for a quick bite and a coffee and was really impressed. The Vanilla Latte was outstanding and the iced coffee was perfect. The bagels are great, my son's everything with cream cheese was great and mine with lox, capers, cream cheese and onions was excellent. The atmosphere is cool and the service is very good, a great spot!

This Pavement Coffeehouse is full of Berklee and Boston Conservatory students, so the atmosphere is alternative. Also get a lot of local regulars, so it is a great place to have an iced latte, capuccino and great bagels. We made it our daily stop to start the day.

My wife, another friend and I have stopped here several times including yesterday for coffee and bagels before a Red Sox game. Despite all the craziness of this neighborhood before a game, this shop is a nice oasis for coffee and conversation. Coffee is very good, bagels are fresh and tasty, we all loved the hummus.

I got the mocha latte iced and its some of the best espresso in Boston! Taste like real chocolate in the coffee! Espresso is fresh and prices are average for a private coffee establishment.

Our son took us here for breakfast and I fell in love with the bagels. I forgot how good they could be. There menu is a delight and has wonderful and interesting combos. Portions are generous and everything is fresh. You can't go wrong for breakfast, chatting and wifi. Great and relaxing atmosphere with happy employees.

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
