Coffee Shop

2014 Winner: Thinking Cup

Coffee lovers who have graduated from pedestrian Dunks and Starbucks can choose from a growing range of small, independently owned Boston cafes, none better than this mini chain with three in-town locations. One of a handful of local outlets for coffees from legendary Oregon sourcer and roaster Stumptown, Thinking Cup offers superb renditions of drip, espresso and pour-over coffees, does proper teas and an amazing hot chocolate and offers a creditable selection of pastries and sandwiches.
