“No NYC Type Bagels But Nice”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

I was looking for an awesome NY style salt bagel in Cambridge, and Google brought up a few places such as this one - alas, no salt bagel, but its a decent enough place.

“The plaza outside”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The place itself and the food is what you'd expect from Au Bon Pain and is often crowded and not very pleasant. The scene outside is an experience. People playing chess, panhandlers, kids hanging out at the Square, assorted weirdos, residents and tourists. If you walk down Mass Av you will see.

“Très Bien”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Presumably you're either visiting this restaurant because you're a tourist or you're a student. Whether it's before or after a class or a tour of the campus, Au Bon Pain offers indoor and outdoor seating with made to order cafeteria-style cuisine like sandwiches, wraps, soup & salad. Eat, drink, be merry!

“Quick visit”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I stopped by this cafe when I was touring the Harvard University campus on my recent trip to Boston. I grabbed a double chocolate chunk muffin & a peach iced tea & proceeded outside to the outdoor tables... My muffin was delicious & the peach iced tea was perfect for a sunny summer day! A great place to visit for delicious healthy food!

“Energy of innovation and caffeine”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Great start -up hub across from Cambridge Innovation Center, you get good coffee and bagels and hear guys pitching investors or MIT students debating string theory on social networks.
