I had been to Cafe de Boston last year but barely recognized it when I went back last week. I honestly thought this was a different location. In my holiday induced (overwhelmed) haze, I had come in a different entrance and the place looked so much bigger and brighter. Cafe de Boston has taken over the space next door and made it a great seating area. Every seat at the bar has an outlet under the counter so that you can recharge while you eat lunch. In the main room there’s a great signpost directing you to your lunch of choice.
Some recent new additions to the space include an amazing Mediterranean yogurt bar where you can design your own Greek yogurt parfait. Add fruit, cereal, even hot sauce if that strikes your fancy.
The thing that really caught my eye was the create your own smoothie. Choose your frozen yogurt, choose your fruit and/or veggies, and choose your juice – bring it to the cashier and they blend you up your custom smoothie. $7.95 gets you 24oz.
What else can you find at Cafe de Boston? Pizza (over 10 choices), a pasta station, a crepe station, kebabs, a salad bar and a hot food bar. If you come in after 2:30, anything left at the hot bar is discounted. And did you know that in the morning they have a breakfast bar? Not only can you get a breakfast sandwich and your first (or second) cup of coffee, but you can also grab some scrambled eggs and bacon from the buffet.
Their dessert case has over a dozen choices, and if you like the cakes, you can buy them by the slice or pick up a whole cake for that office birthday. Owner Levent Berksan has done a great job with the space, there really is something for everything.
Here’s another thing you might not know about Cafe de Boston: they have a conference room available upstairs. You can order lunch ahead of time or have people pick out their lunch when they get there. The room is available for an hour to up to the whole day. Feel like just having them cater to your office? Give Joseph a call and he will take good care of you!
