Clover Food Lab serves the best food in Cambridge, period. Every time we have dined here we have had an extremely friendly service and amazingly good food. You can go here anytime of the day and order anything off their menu and it is guaranteed to be good. The place can get crowded at times but the quality of their... More

I'm not a big fan of their cold food, but I have liked their fries and hummus. This time our fries came in burned, we asked to be replaced, but same problem. The hummus was okay, but very grainy, which means they don't know how to cook!

This is a review of Clover's food truck catering service. We were beyond disappointed with the Clover food truck that catered our wedding on Saturday. What an embarrassment for a company we have supported for 8 years, eating at the Westford location twice a week. No gluten free food as promised for our severely Celiac friends, telling our guests you... More

I had done some research before visiting Cambridge and was really excited to try clover for some fresh vegan food. It did not disappoint! The atmosphere was incredible. When they renovated it they uncovered some old tile work from the original Harvard lunch spot which was cool to see. They also have a modern ordering system which makes things move... More

Unique, well priced and quick and friendly service. What more could you ask for when stopping for lunch in Harvard. The food was excellent and varied... I could have eaten here every day of the week's trip!

We found this little place by accident after cycling around Harvard and MIT . Very small but tasty seasonal menu. Had the hummus and pita, and blue oyster mushroom sandwich and the Rosemary fries . All were yummy and well prepared with fresh ingredients . A gem !

When you are in the mood for something fresh & different, Clover is the place to eat. The ingredient combos are unusual & the pitas are soft & warm. I ate the eggplant & egg - velvety texture & delicious flavor. My daughter ordered the bbq seitan & loved it. However, I rated Clover a 4 instead of a 5... More

We were looking for a local coffee place while wandering around Cambridge and Harvard and spotted this place. We only wanted drinks, so never tried the food. As you enter you are greeted by a mobile server who will explain the set up. For coffees there are a choice of blends and it is filter only, so no cappuccino or... More
