As one of the biggest sports and pub towns in the U.S., Boston doesn’t have a reputation for its wide variety of cafés and coffee shops – but with more than 50 universities and colleges and plenty of well-to-do denizens with leisure time on their hands, there are a massive number of cafés in Boston to be found.
Boston cafés and coffee shops are abundant in any neighborhood in the city, but they are most prevalent in the student areas of Cambridge, the Back Bay, Allston, and Brighton. Trendy coffee shops and cafés also line Newbury Street and inside Faneuil Hall where shoppers needing a refuel can laze away for an hour before heading back out on a shopping spree.
Cafés in Boston are perfect for a number of things: they’re great places to curl up with a book on those miserably cold winter days. They make for the perfect study environments with classmates. Cafés are good for a quick bite or lazy lunch. Or, they can be the ideal spot for a casual day date.
Regardless of which café you choose, or why you decide to go, Boston isn’t only a beer and sports town, and everywhere you look you can find a cozy spot to grab some coffee and hang out with friends to while away the day – of course the game will probably be on their TV as well.
