Nice local cafe

One of many atmospheric local hangouts on Lawrence's Massachusetts Street. I had the Kansas vegetable pressed sandwich. This is a great sandwich with creamy goat cheese. I appreciate that they give you tons of choices for the side that comes with your sandwich: soup, green salad, breakfast... read more

My wife and I dined here for breakfast and each ordered the special, Eggs Benedict. The wait was a little on the long side, but they were rather busy. This had to be one of the most disappointing Eggs Benedicts I have ever had. There was no Canadian Bacon, instead there was tomato and avocado. The tomato was 5 weeks... More

Fun and colorful surroundings, flags of many countries adorn the ceiling, to match up with foods of the world. It is also very vegetarian friendly. This is a relaxing place for breakfast or lunch. We went for brunch. My Cuban sandwich was very tasty with thick pieces of pork and ham. The mustard and pickle a classic complement on thin... More

This is kind of a hippy place, but the food is great, and love that it is locally sourced when possible. I have had lunch here twice and was good both times.Very friendly staff and nice variety of healthy meals. If you are looking for a good restaurant, that is not one of the many chains that are infiltrating Mass... More

I can't believe I have to write a review like this in my hometown. We visited at noon on a Friday. There were still empty tables. Waited over 30 minutes with one visit from the water. Took our order within 10 minutes, brought water. We finally left without any trace of food or drinks. Even after 2 tables who were... More

I really enjoyed this place, the atmosphere really did represent what Global was. They have different flags on the ceiling which I appreciated (I like to travel quite a bit). There was a lot of variety representing different styles of food. I had the bacon, avocado, Monterrey cheese omelet, and was it delicious! The bacon was thick cut and definitely... More

I love Global Café, partly because I can have breakfast at lunch any day of the week. They used locally sourced food and it's a quiet, cozy place for a meal. A friend was in from out of town and asked another friend and me in separate emails where to get breakfast that was a hippy type place like he'd... More

Had breakfast on 10/27/13. I had the spicy shrimp omelet, my daugther had the breakfast burrito. Both were really good. Beware the sauce on the burrito--it is spicy! Service was excellent and unhurried. Will definitely go back and try lunch items.
