  • Charles River / Magazine Beach – a bit of nature just down the street for when you need a little fresh air and sunshine

  • Coast Café – tiny soul food joint offering takout, delivery and catering – a hidden treasure!

  • Flour Bakery – my absolute favorite bakery in all of Greater Boston happens to have a location just a couple blocks away...

  • Take a quick hop over to Central Square to eat in or take out from so many great restaurants -- Pepper Sky's, Little Donkey, The Mad Monkfish, Life Alive, Craigie on Main, and more!
