ブラックコーヒーがお値ごろなのと 雰囲気が良いので、流行っています。木製の椅子やカップやプロフェッショナルなスタッフがいいのだと思います。 Black coffee is reasonable. Always crowded because of its good atmosphere and professionalism.

Nice coffee shop, but would be much better if they had wifi service. The service tends to be a bit slow too.

Been searching for good coffee in Boston... tried out Cafe Fixe. Not bad espresso, the latte was decent. Got a almond croissant which wasn't very good, very small selection of pastries. Surprised at such a small place with a modern appearance, definitely not the type...More
