I am a coffee junky. When I travel I research the coffee houses in the area. I thought the paramount place for good coffee, comfort, and a fine vibe was in Stumptown NYC. Then Red Eye Roaster Hingham opened right in my world. Nirvana. It is hard to say what I like best about RE. As soon as I approach the door I am greeted with the wonderful aroma of roasting coffee so pleasant, even if it is lingering from the day before. The coffee pours like fine wine with a wonderful appearance, aroma, taste, balance, and finish. I take my first sip with my eyes closed so as not to miss any element of the flavor. The staff is consistently cheery and friendly. They are like good friends who always seem glad to see you. The ambiance is inviting; it’s hard to walk away when hitting it on the way to work. On weekends it is the best place to linger with a book or make new friends in the comfortable seating area. Went to Stumptown again recently and it just seemed blah after Red Eye.
Has anyone found coffee houses in the Boston area like it?
