“Katie and Andy have a assembled a team of amazing staff to create one of my favorite cafes in Boston (and maybe anywhere). They are gluten-free and vegan-friendly - if that is a concern of yours... or you can shove your face into a gluten-filled non-vegan biscuit or cake! Their coffee... killer. Their sandwiches... awesome. Andy and the team... LOVE THEM. Their stuff is so good that I brought 6 pieces of their sweet potato cake with me to Europe when I left for a year-long trip. Tip... lines can be long, but they move along quickly. Seating can be a challenge. Late morning or super early on weekdays is best. Weekends are always busy. Well worth the visit!”
