Intrepid Cafe, East Cambridge
By Christine Carpenter
Intrepid Cafe is a lovely espresso and toast bar located on Kendall Square's First Street. This cafe is a fantastic addition to the area with a beautiful ambiance and an incredibly helpful staff. Aside from the long list of brewed hot and cold beverages, Intrepid offers an ever-changing scrumptious menu of toasts. Intrepid Cafe has really captured the spirit of being locally minded. The coffee is from Boston's Gracenote; the original mural was created by Somerville artist Solei; and they also have a collection of Somerville chocolate. Go for the coffee - stay for the toast. Now open on Saturdays as well.
