Crema's excellent coffee and pasty make it my go to breakfast spot in Harvard Sq. The seating is cozy and there is generally an open spot to settle into. I recently headed to Crema with a bunch of friends, and we had no trouble putting a couple tables together upstairs. Highly recommended for Cambridge breakfast.

It's places like Crema that make you want to live in Cambridge. The coffee is the best in Cambridge and will exceed your expectations. So will the croissants - which are better than Paris. Don't know how this is possible. It's a first rate place that is a Harvard institution. Enjoy !

The coffee and the macaroons didn't disapppoint. This was the best cup of coffee I had during my trip. I found the service friendly if a little rushed.

Great coffee but also the best cupcake ever.

Busy little coffee shop in the heart of Harvard Square, sadly no wifi that I could find.

The highlight was the maple pecan cupcake, which I would have had more of if I hadn't bought the last one.

Drinks-good, Snacks-good, Sweets-Great! But the service is poor unfortunately. The servers are always looking like they had lost their nearest and dearest aunt in a Colorado forest fire and the last thing they want to be doing is serving you.

All is not lost because the coffees, teas, food and confectionary make up for it.

Don't calorie count or you will want to go get a stomach pump and eventually look like Angelina Jolie's scary half-sister. Everything in moderation right?

Enjoy, the best Mate Latte in the world!
