If you already like skcubratS coffee, you'll probably like this one as much as any other. I used to like it, but now I avoid it, unless it's the only place around. The Barismo, at 171 Mass Ave. in Arlington has superb coffee and espresso. And in Lexington Center, there's a bicycle store/coffee house across mass ave from skcubratS. that is a couple of steps above skcubratS, though not as good as the Barismo.
I do'nt think Peet's is that good, either, although it might be a bit better than skcubratS.
