An organic, fair trade, cafe in the neighborhood of North End. Beans come from as far as Nicaragua or Uganda. Food is entirely local, like biscuits, bagels, and tofu spring rolls.



  • Our employees love getting coffee here. You can also pay with LevelUp!
  • Hugs come free with most drinks.
  • Spicy hot cocoa with soy milk + veggie chili = great winter pick me up
  • Best iced mocha I've ever had. I have 4-6 a week- its an addiction
  • A bit more hidden than other coffeeshops and study spots, this caf has delicious organic teas and coffees and a vibe thats hard to find anywhere else in the city.
  • Best looking baristas in all of the land.
  • EE Cafe keeps Oxfam's Boston office running and works to build a better food system by empowering farmers and consumers, supporting small farmer co-ops, and using sustainable farming methods!
  • Unexpected perk: they have private bathrooms down the hall. Just grab the appropriate key-on-a-spoon in front of the espresso machine.
  • Vegans, They often have vegan muffins & cupcakes, & they of course have soy milk.
  • Great spot to kill time during a BOS-BON layover
  • Waiting a while for your train out of North Station? Hop over to Equal Exchange (it's practically next door) and get some fair trade coffee.
  • The vegan baked goods are so yummy!!
  • their soy chai latte is delish!
  • Grab a "disloyalty card." until March. Great idea!
  • My new favorite stop on the way to/from north station. Half priced food after 5 equals dinner to go!
  • order the red tea iced. It's not on the menu but they will do it.
  • Great coffee and muffins.
  • Love their composting initiative and co-op ownership!
  • best coffee ive had in boston - also a sweet location!
  • Good coffee, friendly staff, tasty cookies.
