We needed coffee and a morning pick me up early one morning and happened upon Crema. Flavorful, rich coffee, homemade baked goods, granola yogurt parfaits - everyone had something different and everyone was happy. The atmosphere was equally charming - actual student artwork on the walls and a an urban farmhouse decor. Crema is what coffeehouses should be...instead of those... More

Don't miss the egg sandwiches on the house-made English Muffins. Really special. I also enjoyed the scone with pear and ginger. A nice combo.

This coffee shop is a little gem in Cambridge. On a recent visit, I spent my mornings there getting breakfast and watching the liveliness of this place. The foot was excellent- I have the Dried Fig & Port Jam panini. To be honest, I had trouble choosing what to eat - everything looked delicious and fresh and the staff is... More

Are you one of us saying that... but first coffee? Well this time, make a difference and start your day with Crema Cafe's famous almond early grey tea and their homemade baked goods. Something salty like spinach and feta croissant or something sweet like vegan biscotti. Go upstairs, take a seat and get warm.

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
