As one of Boston's favorite coffee houses, Andala Coffee House has 'reversed the trend of fast food coffee shops in America' they state on their site. Offering a warm atmosphere to stay and socialize with friends, and make new friends as there is always a variety of cultures in the shop. Arabic Coffee and traditional Israeli teas are offered on their drink menu, along with hummus plates, oatmeal, and a fresh squeezed juice bar.

Foursquare Tips

  • Free wifi - enough said
  • Get the Arabic coffee for a nice change from espresso or Turkish coffee
  • yes, try the egg salad sandwich -- way better than it sounds, I promise!
  • Grab a seat downstairs. +1 if you are with a group.
  • Enjoy the FAB hummus plate
  • Utterly flavorless food and terrible service. The staff looked like they couldn't care less to be there. Won't be coming here again.
  • With a bit of care, this place could be amazing. The menu cards need a cleaning (badly). The furniture and signs need touching up. Service slow, Wifi unreliable. Reasonable food and coffee.
  • Hummus plate and fresh squeezed apple juice. Makes you feel like a BOSS
  • Cozy environment and a diverse selection of teas and coffees. Service was a bit all over the place, unfortunately. The free wifi also wasn't connecting for some of us.
  • The Jerusalem egg salad sandwich is more like an omelette sandwich, & totally delicious!
  • good food and coffee, free wifi.
  • I love this place ! :D
  • Great place to relax with both a latte and a plate of hummus, where also can you do that?
  • Internet is blazing fast now! Thank you for fixing it!
  • Nice environment.
  • Hookah, iced mint tea
  • The hookah is delicious, the food is authentic (rice with shakshukah!), and the mint tea is flowing. Can't go wrong. Make sure you're not in a rush, though.
  • One of my favorites. Love the Turkish coffee, and the food is great too, the Andala omelette, for one.
  • Banana bread!
  • Authentic Hookah outside.
