Better choices without the fast food of Duncan Donuts which are everywhere....and I do mean everywhere. Very nice staff and they make your food fresh. Good coffee choices

We were just walking by and saw Boston Common Coffee and decided to pop in for some coffee - as I had heard good things about it before. The place is very quaint and laid out well, with a distinct entrance and exit to the ordering counter. The coffee is average price but very strong! I enjoyed it a lot.

This was the perfect quick spot on our morning walk before leaving Boston. The blueberry oatmeal square was delicious as well as my husband's sandwich and tea. We sat by the front window and people-watched.

This is a cute little coffee house, but there tends to be quite a wait to order. Often times when I go they can be out of items on the menu. Luckily, their offerings are vast and there is something else to try. Not discounted prices, but for lunch they are not bad.

I stayed here for a couple hours to grab some breakfast and recharge my devices (as well as my legs) while in transit to Europe. The bagels are quite nice and the coffee (Mocha latte), while hot is enjoyable. Definitely not the best I've tasted but better than average. Decently priced, but no music in the cafe which feels odd... More

I love this place. It is large, roomy, not at all cramped like most places in town. I used to work right by there and went to BCC almost every day. I love their scones, cakes, pastries, wonderful convenient place to meet up with friends for a quick coffee. You can even grab breakfast before work, very convenient. Service is... More
