Neighborhood Cafes

I looked to post this in an existing thread, but they are all really old and out-of-date. I thought it might be helpful to have a thread for neighborhood cafes that have good coffee and espresso drinks, decent sandwiches/snacks, and plenty of space to hang out for a while.

This morning, my husband and I stopped at Revival, Chef Nookie Postal’s newish cafe in the office park/condo development on Alewife Park Dr. behind Alewife Station, for a post-brunch treat. The George Howell Kenya varietal drip coffee was really good, as were the mini carrot cake and the apple hand pie, which had an excellent pastry enclosing a tasty filling. The croissants and other pastries looked terrific, and the sandwich/bowls menu sounded promising. All the breads and the English muffins are made in-house.

Weekend parking is easy in the lot behind the cafe. I’m not sure how weekday parking is but will check the next time we stop in. It’s a really convenient location for us to grab a snack/coffee drink or a breakfast sandwich.
