Kickstand Cafe in Arlington Center
Kickstand Cafe is located in Arlington Center and conveniently accessible off of the Minuteman Bikeway. Kickstand is a hub for the community to gather, offering a selection of artful sandwiches, hearty soups and salads, and local pastries, as well as a variety of coffee, tea, and juice beverages. Inside, the lively café offers open seating at funky tables, well-loved board games, rotating books, and friendly service at the counter. Outside, two separate patios are bridged by the bike path and café parking – both a pleasant oasis amongst the activity of Arlington Center and people in transit on the bike path. I enjoy sitting in a window seat with an iced coffee while I work, or connecting with friends and clients on the patio for lunch.
Kickstand Cafe also hosts regular community events, such as their much loved open mic, author salon, and moth-style storytelling series.
