I used to go to Darwin's all the time for the Mermanwich (awesome fish sandwich). Yesterday was my absolute last trip ever. I dealt with the pretentious, hipster, rude, obnoxious (is that redundant?) staff for as long as I could, but one in particular crossed the line yesterday when they sent through a charge that was $1 more than my order, and more than the receipt I signed. Sure, it's "only" a dollar, but how many people are they doing this to now? I hope this place goes right down the toilet. Or that the people in charge finally wake up and realize how their staff is completely ruining this establishment.

Coffee and lounging with the NY times....mmm. Superb place to just hang, eat and talk. Often hard to get a place to sit - but worth waiting for.

Met a friend to catch up before a business dinner. We were there for almost 3 hours it's so comfortable. I had the rooibos tea latte and a red velvet cupcake. To say they were delicious doesn't seem fair but absent a thesaurus it will have to do especially since yumcious isn't a real word. The neighborhood is mainly residential but it's only 3 blocks from the Charles hotel. Try it. Take your laptop and have a nice snack or whatever. You won't be disappointed.

There are two Darwin locations in Cambridge, and each is a different experience. In the Mt Auburn location, the line is always long for sandwiches at lunch, but they are truly yummy. They have a long list of regular sandwiches - like the ARC- roast beef, cheese and barbecue sauce (one of my favorites) = plus three sandwiches of the day - usually two meat based and one veggie based and always fascinating combinations. These are BIG - good to share if you are a regular sized eater. The Cambridge St location is bigger, and you can order your sandwich, coffee and dessert all in one place. The currant scones are delightfully light and tasty, and at breakfast they do a number of excellent breakfast sandwiches with eggs and a variety of different fillings on a equally large variety of breads of your choice. This place is marvelous. There is more seating at the Cambridge St location, so if you are not taking your food away I would recommend eating here.

Almost every weekend I go to Darwins for a breakfast sandwich. I look forward to it all week. They serve break from a local bakery and the food is prepared to order. Delicious food, Cambridge atmosphere.
