Thinking Cup is pleased to be the first coffee shop in Downtown Boston to serve "Stumptown Coffee" exclusively. Stumptown, originating in Portland Oregon had been named “Best Coffee in the World” by NPR, The New York Times, Food & Wine Magazine, and USA Today. To ensure exceptional quality and freshness we obtain our beans directly from Stumptown’s roasting facility in Brooklyn, New York.Opening its doors in December 2010, Thinking Cup is ideally located just steps from the Boston Common. We are committed to providing the premier coffee experience in Boston by serving only the finest coffees, teas, and freshly baked pastries. Was awarded Best Coffee Shop in Boston by Boston Magazine for 2011…
Colleague and I often pop in for lunch when we're in Boston. Sandwiches are great - interesting and filling - and it's very buzzy. I think our top 3 are the Jittery Hen, the Smoking Jamaican and the Italian - others are probably nice, but...More
Just off the Boston Common, The Thinking Cup is a great spot to stop in for a pastry and coffee. Comfortable decor! A busy spot, but worth a small wait to get a coffee drink. Try the cortado for something hot and strong. Nice selection...More
I stumbled upon Thinking Cup on a cold morning walk in Boston. The cafe is large with lots of seating, the coffee is excellent and there is a huge selection of sandwiches and cakes. I only had coffee, but the food looked delicious. I loved...More
After seeing the lights in the park, and laughing at the antics on the ice skating rink, we were happy to find this warm and inviting coffee shop nearby. The menu was interesting, the pastries were unbelievably beautiful and delicious, and the people there were...More
Really great cafe in a beautiful location. By staying open late it almost advertises itself to students who need a place to work late. However, there is no WiFi available which is a really big shame as it’s the only cafe around downtown that stays...More
After spending a week in Boston and eating at some very expensive restaurants (not on purpose,) my husband and I fell upon the Thinking Cup. How we walked by it over and over again and not notice it, I can't say. I really wish we...More
We stayed in Boston for three nights just opposite the Thinking Cup. Went across to this great little cafe the first morning for breakfast and ended up there for the next two! Genuinely friendly staff, excellent selection of food and awesome coffee. Wish we could...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
