does anyone know the name of that fairly new cafe in central square-- for a long time, there was a cafe there, then it shut down, and this one has opened. it's on the cambridgeport side of mass ave, behind that big church on the corner of magazine and western.
also, has anyone been there? is it worth a visit?
i know the place you mean-- that's not what i was thinking of. this place is on a corner- it might be the corner of magazine and franklin, or magazine and green. for a long time it was a cafe - i think they also had ethiopian snacks/sweets, and then it was shut for a few years. it's recently reopened, it has downstairs and upstairs seating.
Cafe Baraka or Barada. I ate there a few days ago. Very pleasant service, nice quiet atmosphere. Middle Eastern food. I had an avocado pressed wrap with some marinated carrots. My green tea could have been better. It was not loose and the presentation could be improved. Great place for a book or a chat.
Is it Cafe Andala? In the brick building with a blue sign outside? If so, go--it's very good. Middle Eastern food (salads platters, hummus), freshly squeezed juices, Arabic coffee (haven't tried it), and good regular coffee. Also a nice bright place to sit and work.
