I have been going here for some time, and have only recieved excellent food and drink, and friendly service. The coffee is the most consistent and well presented in Somerville, and I don't say that lightly. (I'm a barista at a Somerville coffee shop. They're better than we are.) I'd recommend the Market Sandwich, and any espresso drink you fancy.... More

Loved this little, cozy place 💕 workers appearence rocks 💙 We had a cappuccino and a hot chocolate along w/ a pistachio chocolate cookie... They decorated both drinks in a pretty way, not only a joy for the palate and the eyes. Highly suggested!

Had an excellent nitro cold brew. Very refreshing. The spinach pie was also fantastic. I really enjoyed the strong combination of the spinach and feta. Once I found a table, it was a great place to chill.

I stopped in for a mocha and egg & feta sandwich on my way to work. I enjoyed both. The mocha was $4.50 and nicely creamy - they use fresh jersey milk which must contribute to this. The Greek flair is a nice treat amongst the usual coffee shop themes.

I come here for a good breakfast once in awhile. Computer usage not allowed during brunch time, great coffee, delicious quiche and baked goods

From the house made granola and berry compote toppings for the yoghurt to the quinoa brunch bowl with roasted root veggies and a pesto poached egg, every bite was yummy! Can't wait to come back. Don't let the line fool you. It goes fast bc so many take their food to go. Not much seating inside.

The weekend egg sandwich was delicious. Their latte was hand crafted with great flavor. Outside seating was nice.

Great neighborhood cafe, wish they had some greenery out front to improve the look. Prices good, staff fantastic! Always busy which show how much we need places like this between Davis Square and Union Square.

Went late Saturday morning. It's fancy food, loosely based upon Greek foods. Order at the counter and hope a table comes available. The service is efficient and not panicked even though they were very busy. I had a half sweet potato sandwich and I would say only that I didn't care for the bread. I'd probably try something else next... More

I've done a lot of traveling, and have enjoyed a lot of cafes around the world, but 3 Little Figs is hands-down the absolute best cafe I have been to! I've been going to 3 Little Figs for the last 4 years for their egg & feta sandwiches and chai lattes. I go there weekly (sometimes daily), and the staff... More
