Student and HBS/HLS, Explorer
Best brunch and breakfast place in Cambridge. Play spot the random Harvard professor.
Explore when it's at its most morning frenetic.
If you can find a student to sneak you inside, it's an amazingly beautiful place.
Incredible and well-named sandwiches, difficult yet endearing staff.
One of the last and best independent bookstores around.
If it's nice, hang out in Winthrop Park with a book and a tea.
The best (probably only) rooftop bar in the square. Great for pre and post-dinner drinks.
Short walk out the square, but the food's worth it.
Stay upstairs with all the cool kids.
For a more aggressive evening, scorpion bowls and the third floor.
Not necessarily great, but there's not much better.
