    These all sound great! I also love Expresso Royale Cafe, which has two locations – one on Newbury street and one on Gainsborough!

    I’ve been to all the independent coffee shops in Boston and Cambridge. Hands down, Flat Black Coffee is doing something extra special in their roasting. The coffee is supreme, always!!!
