The Other Side Cafe, Emack & Bolio's; Back Bay Boston

The Other Side (Cosmic) Cafe

The funky haphazard hipster vibe would be entirely at home on Telegraph in the People's Republic of Berkeley.

Chicken salad sandwich with undistinguished slices of multigrain bread, pleasant (but skimpy) chicken salad enhanced with (I think) toasted coconut, lettuce and tomato.

Surprisingly good gazpacho, the vegetables pureed to the right texture -- tangible little bits, but smaller than a fine brunoise. Cool against a background of spicy heat, a bright acidity with fruitty tomato tang.

Emack & Boiio's

Very buttery caramel with walnuts and intense dried apricot.

Anyone had their egg creams?
