A decent coffee house right on campus of Boston University. Its just a few doors down from a starbucks. This is not as crowded as Starbucks, but is is a large place with a lot of students that hang out there.
The coffee is good and the baristas are learning how to bring more flavor and texture from their shots.
A pleasant place to have a cup of coffee without having to run around everywhere to look for an indie shop that is super special.
