The Algiers Coffee House has been a main-stay in Cambridge for decades, and shows it's age, but in a very charming manner. Locals and students sit closely at Moroccan tables sipping tea by the pot, eating their truly yummy falafel platters, and enjoying unique salads in a funky, laid-back atmosphere. Service is friendly and unhurried. Entrees are $8-16 while desserts are $4-8. Try the fresh basbousa (semolina cakes with syrup) for a simple, satisfying sweet with your coffee. The Algiers is not wheelchair accessible, and serves beer and wine.

Authentic Harvard Square

By Sarah Shemkus
There once was a girl named Olga who was wandering around Harvard Square when she ran into a girl named Sarah from her NYU French class. Olga said, "Sarah! I didn't expect to see you here!" to which Sarah responded--her turbid prescripition sunglasses angling to the side, her voice an even contralto, causing Olga to shiver in the Cambridge sun-- "but why would you?" More "authentic" Harvard Square stories are only a mouse-click away.
