“Great coffee shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

I was in town for two days and my first trip was so good I had to go back for a second. Great coffee and baked goods. I had two scones and both were excellent - just sweet enough and not dense at all. I tasted their apple danish and blueberry muffin - both were good.

I would give 5 stars, but they don't have WiFi.

“As advertised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

In Boston for the week looking for something healthy, light and inexpensive within walking distance of my hotel for dinner. Thinking Cup delivered with a tasty 'Jimmy the Greek' sandwich and an iced decaf Cafe Americano.

I'll be back...

“Great coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We were in from out of town and this place was recommended. Great place to sit and sip coffee and have a snack. Relaxing and in a convenient location for sight seeing.

Just what we needed on our freedom trail journey, had a yummy quinoa salad and iced chai. Cute place with eclectic decor and healthy options.

Decent coffee and fantastic sandwich. I had the turkey club, my wife " the Italian" - both were delicious! Would have lunch here every day if I could!
