Crema Cafe

Last Friday, I visited the Crema Cafe in Harvard Square for lunch, and now, I’m completely smitten! You will see a lot of this place on the blog in the future! 

I visited the Crema Cafe during lunchtime, and it was crazy-busy! Holy moly, it was packed! When I saw the long line of people waiting to place their orders, I almost turned around and walked out the door. The line, however, moved surprisingly fast. I hadn’t even made up my mind on what to order, and suddenly, I was at the front of the line! The Crema employees were incredibly skilled at moving the line along!

If you guys haven’t notice already, I love blogging about the decor and atmosphere inside eating establishments. The look and feel of the place contributes to the entire dining experience, and usually, I think it’s important to highlight! 😉

The decor inside the Crema Cafe is airy, modern, and industrial, blended with a cozy, quaint, and charming, but upscale coffeehouse-feel. Personally, it reminded me of the South End (in Boston) mixed with Burlington, Vermont. The layout is long and narrow with high ceilings, brick walls, and a loft-type area that provides additional seating to customers. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, and the staff was friendly and efficient.

Even though the Cafe was super crowded, I was still able to find a seat at the counter. I waited only a few minutes before my sandwich was served to me in a cute wicker basket.

The menu at the Crema Cafe is excellent! It includes lots of my favorites– coffees, teas, sandwiches, salads, and desserts! The menu doesn’t have a ton of options, but the selections are nutritious, wholesome, and tasty.

For lunch, I ordered the Rosemary-Goat Cheese sandwich, which was soft goat cheese mixed with rosemary, walnuts, and honey on sliced French bread. It was heaven between two slices! 😉

The sweet, honey-flavored walnuts + the smooth, creamy, rosemary goat cheese was a truly amazing flavor combo! I’m still fantasizing about it! 😉

The Crema Cafe is my type of place! I’m already looking forward to my next visit! :mrgreen:

P.S. The pastry case at Crema Cafe looks scrumptious! I’m definitely trying one of their cupcakes next time!
