Baked goods were pretty good, too... would go back if I was in the neighbourhood, but really wish they would offer WiFi!

I found this place in Harvard Square and absolutely love it. Almond milk cappuccinos are great and it has a great atmosphere with students frequenting the place. The food is pretty good also. Definitely my favorite cafe at Harvard Square.

We stopped in after a long day of walking around Cambridge. The place channels a chic coffee shop, and I was very happy to find outlets along the walls of the tables. I ordered the mint iced tea, which was flavorful and refreshing - the perfect drink for a hot summer day.

I've been here a few times on trips to Boston and I try to make a stop here when I can. Pretty good pastry selection and good coffee. Lots of nice seating areas and a fun vibe. I had the bagel sandwich which was good (not amazing, but better than most)

I always enjoy having tea or a good vegetarian sandwich at the Crema Cafe. A grilled cheese sandwich with sweet potato chips stands out in my memory as being intensely delicious. The outdoor seating is very pleasant option to sit and relax outside while enjoying your food. The pricing is pretty standard for Boston/Cambridge as not being the cheapest, but... More

Walking around Cambridge looking for an authentic place to have breakfast. There are plenty of Starbucks and other chains but we wanted something "real". This place fit the bill. Nice wood tables, freshly made pastries, made to order breakfast sandwiches and good coffee.

Crema is a great little casual cafe to grab breakfast, lunch, coffee, snacks. They have great pastry's too. It's a busy, bustling place, with nice staff and great food.

i just love this little, overpriced place. They have plenty to choose from and its all good. It is overpriced but it is Cambridge where lots of money walks by each day. The outdoor seating is situated in just about the best spot in town.
