I love neighborhood cafes with excellent sandwiches, great ambiance, and other cool surprises, like mini cupcakes, pretzel bread, or the most awesome vanilla loaf ever. Cafe Luna is not too far from my work place, and I just can't believe it's taken me this long to finally try out this place.
The City of Cambridge finally recently renovated the sidewalk in front of Cafe Luna, which means now there's tons of outdoor seating, which is a relief, as the cafe is super tiny inside.
I came here on one of those strange April afternoons when the weather hit close to ninety degrees. It was awesome - the entire city of Boston seemed to be outside, desperately trying to soak in as much sunshine as possible in between our crazy rainfalls that we have been getting.
Cafe Luna offers a great assortment of sandwiches. You can make your own, or choose from a huge list of pre-designed sandwiches. This place is very vegetarian friendly, and there are several tasty and unique vegetarian sandwich options. Most items on the menu cost between $7.95 and $8.95, and include either a side salad or chips.
This is the sandwich I got - an artichoke, sundried tomato, pesto, and fresh mozarella. Vegetarian, healthy, and delicious!
They use fresh baked bread from Iggy's, and they also offer a variety of pastries. Apparently, the brunch is amazing, so I'll have to try that next time! For now, I'm super pleased that I have a place like this walking distance from my workplace!
