Cambridge, we miss you - and these are the places we miss most:
Tatte Bakery & Cafe
No matter if breakfast, lunch or afternoon coffee - Tatte is an all-day favorite. This wonderful coffee shop has three locations in Cambridge and treats its customers with incredible breakfast sandwiches, huge salads and yummy pastries. When you are around make sure to try the delicious cinnamon buns!
Harvard Yards not only invites you to visist the oldest US university, but also to spend sunny days on the colorful chairs on its big lawn. If you wish to learn more about Harvard’s history, take a free student-led tour. Once you are done visiting the historical buildings and observing students and tourists you can use the free campus wifi to get some of your own work done.
The Breathing Room
Small and personal - these words best describe the Breathing Room, a yoga studio in Central and Harvard Square. From relaxing stretches to advanced Vinyasa flows, this studio offers a class for every level. We love the donation based Five Dollar Friday classes where you can experience yoga with a different teacher every week and pay a minimum of only $5.
Life Alive (great after a yoga session at The Breathing Room)
Life Alive is by far THE best place for vegetarian and vegan food in Cambridge: all organic, all fresh, all delicious. Our all-time favorite is the Swami Bowl with its sweet curry miso sauce, fresh veggies, almonds, and raisins. A real institution in Central Square, expect long lines at peak lunch and dinner times. On warm days you can join the crowd on the City Hall lawn to eat.
This tastes like Italy in Cambridge. A small and cozy restaurant in Kendall Square with only a couple of tables, Emma’s allows you to try inventive pizza creations. The menu is a fun read for locals with pizzas named after bars, concert venues, or even a T-line, while the walls are decorated with painted pizza paddles - all of them true masterpieces created by Emma’s customers and employees.
There are not many things greater than to spend a free afternoon at a local bookstore. At Rodney's you can take a seat and start browsing books for hours without being interrupted. The store offers a great selection of used books for little money and sells unusual postcards and posters.
You like sushi? You will love Thelonious Monkfish! With nice jazz music in the background, this restaurant in Central Square offers you the freshest sushi creations. We highly recommend the Alaskan, the Rainbow, and the Spicy Lobster rolls. Make sure to reserve a table if you want to avoid long waiting times.
