For the quality of food and service, this is a good value when in Harvard Square. The items on the menu provide better options than the typical pub. The only drawback is how loud it can get....

Looked good and wasn't crowded like so many other Cafes near by so tried for lunch and wasn't disappointed. Simple menu, quick serve, delicious food especially the beef chilli soup and flatbreads

We went down to see a show at the Sinclair and stopped here to have a light dinner. We shared the vegetarian Flatbed, you could smell smell the smoke flavor, it was very good. Great beer selection, casual atmosphere and reasonably priced. We were in and out faster than I expected.

I'm always surprised that it isn't more crowded inside -- it's right in the heart of Harvard Square, reasonably priced, and has a fun and interesting menu. I've been here for dinner (got a flatbread) and for brunch, and both meals were absolutely delicious. The menu has fun combinations of ingredients to be interesting, but not overly adventurous. If you... More

It was my sister's first trip to Harvard and we stopped in here for a bite to eat. The places LOOKS like a great little find. The menu looks yummy, atmosphere laid back, the background music very cool. And this is where the needle scratches on the record: 1. We were given brunch and lunch menus (separate). We ordered our...

We ended up here as a fall back after we discovered that the place we wanted to eat at had closed for the day. Service was good as was my burger and my wife's veggie burger. Our friends had the soup. Definitely worth a second visit since it is not packed with students nursing a cup of coffee for hours... More

Trying too hard to be too many things, this little restaurant just off of the T line in Cambridge was a welcome respite from the day travels in the city. It features flat breads (brick oven pizza) but only three choices with ingredients for eclectic tastes (read, no pepperoni). The main course chicken/cheese/cucumber salad was tasty enough. We ordered the... More

Very attentive service. Small, bistro atmosphere but servers ensured they paid attention to the pace of our meal. Our food was served quickly and the quality was very good.

A great find at Harvard. We had a super quick lunch- 3 very tasty burgers. The serves are big, but very worthwhile. A great spot for a chat, or some people watching.

What a great location for people watching, but only a limited number of table on the street. Limited menu with an average wine and beer selection. The service was a bit slow and the tables outside are small, but the view and opportunity for people watching is great. We had a cheese plate, which was a bit of a misnomer,... More
