This spot is easy to miss with its small(ish) storefront, but once inside you realize how large and popular it is. There is ample seating, usually mostly full especially at lunch time; an extensive menu, and friendly staff. The coffee is also delicious and equally importantly, strong. There are extensive vegetarian options, and before you roll your eyes and think that must mean they are bland, give them a try. I especially like the Sweet Potato. The veg options are interesting and healthy and largely NORMAL portion sizes - finally! If you aren't ready to try a different vegetable they also have adult grilled cheese and more typical salads/turkey sandwiches/etc. In the warmer months, you can linger at the outdoor seating and watch Harvard Square swirl around you, which is a sight to be seen. Enjoy!
