Algiers Coffeeshop – A gem in Harvard Square

I like my coffee strong and unpretentious. At Algiers, an old-school Middle-eastern coffee shop, I found much more. I discovered a cozy terrace that overlooks Brattle Street, secluded from the crowds of Harvard Square. I also found a toasty ambiance, a spot for self-reflection, and delicious cuisine on a budget. With a strong cuppa of cafe mocha, a pastry and a vantage point to people watch, I had my plate full.

On rainy days, I’ve snuck in to find a friendly staff waiting to pamper me with Middle -eastern mint tea and their delicious falafels wrapped in pita┬ábread. Algiers is a comfortable den, where it is perfectly okay to stay in a corner and read through an entire book (pick something from their collection)! Recently, they were closed for a brief period, giving followers like me an absolute panic attack. But in no time they’ve reopened under a new management and having revisited them, my faith in good coffee has been restored.
