“Great place to hangout”
Reviewed November 25, 2011

As a Harvard alumni making a short sentimental trip to Cambridge, I found this a really great place to meet old friends. As this is relatively new, we were imagining what it would be like if it was already there 20 years ago. We would probably have used this place to write our papers while listening to the good music they had.

“Very spacious, 2nd floor area, bathroom via elevator to lower level”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

Fast service, pretty open (for a harvard square shop) and good location. There's a 2nd floor sitting area, but the bathroom is on the lower level and only accessible via elevator.

“Great spot to hang out in Harvard sq.”
Reviewed July 16, 2011

This new Starbucks place is awesome!
It has an upper floor with large windows and a beautiful view of Harvard sq.
Copious seats and tables to sit with your laptop for hours (free wi-fi) working, drinking your coffee and enjoying the Harvard buzz. This place is open 7 days a week until the early hours of the morning!!! And it always full with young students and a pleasant atmosphere. As most places in the area close down at around 10-11PM this is great!
They have also live shows several times every month.

One downside to the place is the restrooms.
It is shared with an adjacent restaurant and it is always busy… and not very clean. Moreover, the only way to get there is by an elevator (busy too, hence it takes time – don’t wait for the last minute) which after 8PM is locked (meaning you need to ask an employ to swipe his card in order to get there).
