Coffee near UMass Boston
I am frequently at UMass Boston and need some good coffee badly for a long drive! After leaving UMass, I get on I-93 north then I-90 west. Used to stop at the Bon Pain at the Doubletree, but now it has been turned into a generic cafe with horrible coffee. Can anyone give me leads on where find some good coffee that is not too far from the I-93 entrance, say a mile or so? Or a place along the route that is easy-on easy off? Latte would be great, but even a good solid cup of coffee will be fine!
Savin Scoop on Savin Hill Ave. serves a nice cup of brewed coffee, I have not tried anything from their espresso machine which appears to be an automated one. Also Ba Le on Dorchester Ave serves a great Vietnamese iced coffee as well, as does the Vietnamese convenience store directly across the street from it.
