I'm a frequent visitor to the Boston area, and each visit prompts me to try different restaurants. On the advice of the 'Where' magazine in the hotel lobby, I stopped by ThinkingCup just to try the recommended hazelnut latte--and I was not disappointed. It was delicious! So much so, that the next afternoon, I made it a point to stop by again, this time just for the prosciutto-caprese ciabatta with a cup of coffee. I should mention here that I dont eat sandwiches, and my coffees are often loaded with sugar. Here, however, the ciabatta made a fan out of me: all the ingredients, from the tomato to the cheese and the prosciutto, were incredibly fresh and they complimented each other perfectly (one taste didn't overpower the other, there wasn't too much of one or the other). And the coffee was just right: not too strong, but not weak either, and I didn't have to load the cup with sugar--just great! I ended my visit with the French hot chocolate--a sipping chocolate, for those who are expecting a regular sized cup--which is served in an espresso-sized serving. Very few places serve this, so I had to have it. I'm such a fan of this place and look forward to my next visit so that I can stop by for another cup of coffee.
