For those of you who don’t know, today is National Coffee Day! Yes, a day devoted to that ever so delectable, energizing drink that gives you a reason to get out of bed on a rainy morning, or gives you that kick you need to get through the rest of the workday. Heck, if we celebrate Valentine’s Day and Earth Day, there should be a day for coffee-lovers too! And that there is.
I urge you to go out and snag a cup of coffee from your favorite cafe today. You definitely deserve it, and what better way to indulge in your #1 java than today? Plus, some of your fave venues may even be giving out discounted or, better yet, free coffee in honor of today! (You won’t know unless you take a peak.) But for now, I’ll give you some insider tips on my personal Beantown faves. Warning: I am a coffee addict so I decided to narrow it down to just a few. Enjoy!
For the Book-Lover: Trident Booksellers & Cafe is my go-to place when I’m looking for a fun scene. You can’t beat half book store, half cafe. You can read a book and enjoy your coffee. I personally love their cappuccinos and hear they have an amazing Viennese Espresso (Double espresso & house blend coffee topped w/whipped cream and cocoa). YUM!
For the Iced-Coffee Fanatic: I’d have to recommend PS Gourmet Coffee in South Boston. They have TONS of iced coffee flavors including Snickerdoodle, Butterscotch and even Coconut Macaroon. Yes, now you can enjoy all your favorite sweet treats in your java without loads of calories!
For the Computer Nerd: Being the writer/computer nerd that I am, I love a place that has WiFi and that’s exactly what you’ll find at Cafenation in Brighton. Cozy up with a hot coffee and then enjoy one of their delicious famous crepes.
For the Tastiest Cappuccino: Without a doubt, you must head to the North End for your cappuccino fix. While there are a lot to choose from, Cafe Vittorio on Hanover Street is by far one of the best. Here you’ll get an authentic Italian cappuccino, with the pretty heart design and all!
