Winner Of A Cafe

grandprixcafe.gifI have to admit that I’m a little nervous reporting on the hidden gem that is the Grand Prix Café in North Cambridge, lest it results in us not being able to get a table on weekends. But it is the holidays after all, so here goes.
Initially wary of the racecar reference (I still need Jon to remind me of the difference between the Grand Prix and NASCAR), the Grand Prix is now a favorite, whether I’m on my own with my laptop, with Jon, or out with the whole family. This morning wasn’t the first time that we spent over an hour enjoying breakfast and watching soccer highlights (the owners are avid soccer fans) while Laurel happily munched her food, chatted with the staff, and enjoyed people watching. The staff is kind and professional, and they serve what quickly has become my favorite coffee in the area, in addition to a full menu of snacks, sandwiches, and desserts (including several homemade items).

The Grand Prix Café is a terrific addition to a block that includes the stylish and modern Asierica and the bounty that is Pemberton Farms. Just remember to bring quarters for the Mass. Ave. meters.
