Kaffeklatsch near Alewife?

greygarious Dec 24, 2011 06:57 PM

I live near Lowell. A friend is staying at the Long Wharf Marriott in Boston next week, and will have a car. I can drive but have a leg injury that means I can't walk easily or manage lots of stairs. We want to meet for an early seafood dinner so I am thinking the Summer Shack on Alewife. Is there somewhere nearby with comfortable seating where we could go afterwards for a long, leisurely chat without feeling pressure to vacate the table? I haven't been to the Alewife area in a long while so I don't know what's there. Something like a Panera would do. No bars, though.

    Unfortunately not much. The Starbucks in the Best Western next to Whole foods sounds like the best bet.

      Also the Whole Foods at Fresh Pond has tables and I have sat there for like 3-4 hours doing homework and no one bothers me. Just a walk over the bridge as well.
