Here’s a list of Boston cafes and restaurants to help plan your next visit. Or maybe you’re there now. Fabulous!
286 Newbury St, Boston, MA 02115, United States
COFFEE! Once you’ve discovered the style of coffee that works for you it’s hard to go back to anything else. Going from a strong flat white to a milky latte is not a nice thing. Pavement was a savior in Boston; not only because they served flat whites but because every coffee was strong and lean and deliciously calming. The staff is extremely friendly and they offer free hourly wifi. They have shops all over the city (commonwealth ave, newbury st, boylston st.)!
TATTE BAKERY AND CAFE:
1003 Beacon St, Brookline, MA 02446, United States
This beautiful, small bakery caught our eye as we were driving past. They specialize in good looking cookies, cakes, tarts and pies. Basically anything you could say, “oh no, I shouldn’t eat that” about, they serve. With the help of outdoor seating, Tatte has a small, enticing menu for breakfast and lunch. The scrambled egg with tomatoes and avocado sandwich caught my eye at first sight. They make they’re coffees very weak, if that’s not your cup of tea you should have your coffee elsewhere before you head into Tatte for treats!
541 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02116, United States
I have always been 100% in favor of brunch and Beehive knows how do to it right. They have a front patio open during the summer months and featuring a ping-pong table. They have live jazz music playing inside from 10:30am on. You need to go with a friend that’s willing to share though, as I think you NEED to try both the eggs benedict with short rib and the thick cut french toast. What a way to start the day!
520 Atlantic Ave, Boston, MA 02210, United States
Nebo is a fancy Italian pizza place, I think. I wouldn’t know because I didn’t even get a chance to look at the menu. I landed from a 25 hour plane ride and went straight to Nebu. My sister was ready with our order table’s order: appetizers to share. Skillet roasted mussels, golden crisp calamari, homemade meatballs, goat cheese panna cotta, arancini balls. You name it, we shared it. I can’t think of one thing I would change from her order.
THE MET BAR & GRILL:
279 Dartmouth St, Boston, MA 02116, United States
Location, location, location. Fries, (sweet potato) fries, (parmesan truffle) fries. Smack down in the middle of Newbury, this place is an obvious go-to. The fact their food is also delicious is a huge bonus. Their enclosed, outdoor seating definitely attracts patrons, but I’m pretty certain it’s the fries that keeps them coming back. If it wasn’t because for their feta avocado toast plate, I would say get servings of every type of fries offered and share.
327 Newbury St, Boston, MA 02115, United States
Sonsie is a great late-night bar spot. The music is pumping, drinks are flowing and food is served late. Thing is, it’s also a superb breakfast and lunch spot, so I might just say it’s best-all-around. I ordered a Kale Ceaser Salad for dinner and loved it. It was amazing! I really mean it too! I also had a bit of my sister’s sirloin steak which was total perfection. If I lived in Boston I could see Sonsie becoming one of my go-to “dinner and drinks” spots.
271 Dartmouth St, Boston, MA 02116, United States
This mexican eatery is the cool one of the group. She wears all black, she likes to dance and is comfortable dressing casually at fancy events. Lolita is very unassuming from the outside, but step inside, follow your waitress down the stairs and you’ll find a dimly lit space prepared to show you a good time. The drinks menu is excellent, but the actual drinks are even better. I wanted to shake the hand of the human who made my watermelon peach mojito. Chips and salsas are placed on the table as you sit, but be careful not to consume them too quickly. You should quickly order the guacamole picante (spicy) then dig in. Also, the complimentary cotton candy that they serve is a reason to visit all on it’s own. It’s an exciting thing to get placed in front of you as an adult.
