Bugmen, junkies, college brats

This place is okay if you're desensitized to the massholes and college twits and you like to eat bug food. If you are a patrician, you will feel out of place here.

Circus Acts in the street during Somerville Arts Festival
Nov 2019
Fixed up, artsy Somerville's best square. Very international folks. Lots of restaurants, theatres, bars. Not too expensive. Mid-rise architecture not special or historic. Younger crowd. Sometimes you can find a free parking spot but most people use the MBTA.

Okay for some things

For food and drinks you have a big selection and most of it’s good. It ranges from pizza at Flatbread or Mike’s to oysters at the Saloon. $1.00 at certain times. Or try Posto for a good, mostly Italian meal.
Davis Sq. does have problems starting with all the bricks missing in the sidewalk. For various reasons a lot of retail stores only stay for a year or two and close. Trash barrels aren’t always empty when full and there’s always homeless druggies hanging around.
If you’re under 40 and can take some bad with the good go for it.

One of my favorite areas in greater Boston

Anyone who misses the old Harvard Square (before the big chains took over) will appreciate Davis Sq in Somerville. There are places to sit and listen to the frequent live performers, and many independent restaurants, coffee shops, etc. Also a few chains like Starbucks. Some of my go-to places are: Mikes for a low-cost meal, Diesel Cafe for coffee, Mr. Crepe for delicious crepes, Out of the Blue for excellent seafood and the Burren for live music. Just outside the square I like Orleans restaurant, Painted Burro for upscale Mexican, Tenoch for inexpensive Mexican and Posto for upscale Italian including great pizza. These are just the tip of the iceberg. There are Asian noodle shops, more Mexican and pizza places, a classic diner, bakeries, clothing stores, singles bars, etc.

Grungy with a few good eats

Typical grungy urban area with up and coming eats. Convenient T line stop. Weekly small farmer’s market.
