Best Coffee on Campus
After having over a month off from school and becoming accustomed to a day not dominated by school, homework and meeting up for group projects, it may be a struggle to get back into the swing of things. Now you’re waking up at 6:30 a.m., commuting into downtown for a full day of classes, hoping your train, bus, or car does not let you down. You make it on time with 15 minutes to spare, naturally the next step is a hot cup of coffee to make this blistering cold New England day bearable. So where do you go? Don’t worry, you have options! Here some of the best coffee shops located conveniently around Suffolk’s campus.
For a traditional, delicious, fresh-brewed hot coffee, and some amazing latte art, Thinking Cup Coffee, is the place for you. Serving up Stumptown Coffee, a critically acclaimed brand, it is no wonder they had to open up two more locations in Boston. The location closest to Suffolk’s campus is located at 165 Tremont Street, right down the street from the Tremont Street dormitories. With a warm, inviting décor and atmosphere this is the perfect place to get your early morning caffeine fix, or to camp out all day and catch up on some work. Best Menu Recommendation: The Hazelnut Latte
If ice coffee is your thing for every season, there is no better place than Boston Common Coffee Co. Located at 515 Washington Street next to Suffolk’s Modern Theater. With a wide variety of flavor shots and tea selection, there is something for everyone here. The ice coffee is unique because it is so full of flavor one can just simply drink it black. Though the atmosphere is not great at the Washington street location to hang out in between classes or catch up on work, they do offer Wi-Fi and plenty of seating options. Best Menu Recommendation: A large ice coffee (which is huge) with a flavor shot of mocha and raspberry. Also, while you are in there, grab a bagel with cream cheese.
Not a fancy coffee drinker and cannot tell the difference between a macchiato, a latte and a cappuccino? Pop into Capital Coffee House; just an average cup of coffee, with anything but average flavor. This is a great spot to grab breakfast quick, but not miss out on the quality and deliciousness factor. With its old fashion dinette feel it is perfect for the commuter who is looking for something quick and delicious. Best Menu Recommendation: a bacon, egg and cheese on a bagel with a medium hot or ice French vanilla coffee.
So whether it is warm and inviting latte art, a place to rest your feet and snag free Wi-Fi, or for the best egg sandwich and traditional cup of coffee located on campus, there is a perfect solution for the necessary caffeine fix for everyone.
