I love this little, simple cafe right on the edge of Central Square towards MIT. The decor inside is slightly loft-like, with a nice mix of wood and metal. The baked goods are great, the fair trade coffee is good, and the sandwiches are delicious. I also got a delightfully refreshing crimson berry iced tea there recently. Perfect on a hot summer day.
One warning - the service is a bit slow. Expect to wait 10-15 minutes before getting your individually crafted sandwich.
Nevertheless, if you have some time to spare, sit down in the cool space and relax. It's a great place to study, meet up with a friend for coffee, or just to sit alone and ponder.
If you do go, definitely try the pretzel bread! I absolutely love their pretzel bread, which I have never seen anywhere else. It's so unique. Definitely get your sandwich on pretzel bread! They also make their own bagels and a slew of other interesting baked goods.
