Very enjoyable breakfast

I liked the idea behind this restaurant. Got here bright and early for a breakfast sandwich and it did not disappoint. What's so amazing about a pita with poached egg and tomatoes? Well, it's all about fresh ingredients assembled on order. The popover was steaming and fresh out of the oven - that... read more

Clover has a wildly faithful falling. The menu does change daily and it is a short menu. Clover started as a food truck, to restaraunts, and apparently next stop is Whole Foods. So yes it is organic. Two consistent items though are chickpea fritters and rosemary fries. The fritters are not falafel but a somewhat herby fritter, served with shredded... More

I really enjoyed visiting Clover. The coffee and tea is excellent. And the salads I had were wonderful (I had a beet salad and one with rice and artichokes). The staff are quite efficient, and for some reason they do not accept tips. If you want to take a break or just chill out in Harvard Square, this is a... More

Clover Food Lab has very raw, healthy, vegetarian food. Although I expected meat, the pita/sandwich was very good. One note-if you come during lunch hours, it is too busy and not as clean.

Like so many places staffed by hipsters (others in Cambridge shall remain nameless in this review), Clover's commitment to hygiene is moderate, at best. The hands of the person taking the order, whether at the Harvard Sq or Cambridge St locations, always seem to be encrusted in dirt, with dirty fingernails and frequently dirty shirt cuffs. Just got in from... More

I almost walked out when I realized this is is a vegetarian only place, but I'm really glad I didn't. The pita/sandwich that I had was so flavorful, I completely forgot it had no meat.

We came here on both trips to Boston. They make your lunch and coffee on the spot, all fresh ingredients. They take your order quickly and serve in reasonable time, depending on the crowds. The food is delicious!!!

Very interesting healthy, reasonably priced vegetarian food, nice bright & airy, casual atmosphere (2 beautiful, long wooden tables on the 1st floor), cool business practices; I had the BBQ seitan sandwich, which was tasty; the brussels sprouts salad, which was pretty good; and the french fries with rosemary, which could've been better (they seemed like 15 minutes old); service could've...

Not a vegan but this place is great, healthy food in a kind of "collaborative" eating environment built for engaging discussion. Feels like they have a long future ahead... Smart food for the smarterest
