Ok. Living almost a decade in the Pacific NW my definition of weak coffee isn't calibrated for the East coast. We were here for breakfast on a Saturday and it looked like the place hasn't been cleaned in a month. Dirty counters and tables; filthy floors. The atmosphere is fine but gets dinged for the filth.

I love a great cappuccino after a great Italian meal in the North End! However, most of the restaurants don't carry soy milk for those who are vegan or lactose intolerant. Tonight while walking on Salem Street, I discovered that Boston Common carries soy and has every option you might want for espresso, cappuccino, or other coffee drinks! Great, friendly staff, and while I did not indulge, there were some tempting looking sweets!

The woman gave us the wrong order, but then not long after she gave us the correct one... but they were empty and it took a very long time.. It tasted great,though and was a decent price..


Not too bad, but wouldn't visit again.

It was freezing in Boston when I entered in this very special cafe. The atmosphere is great. Something like a Starbucks a little bit more cozy and familiar. Great lounge area, perfect to stay having a cup of coffee and a book.
