  • i miss you, espresso royale
  • RIP espresso royale...
  • at least we still have each other, sunrise bagel sandwich.
  • The earlier the better, seats fill up quickly. Espresso Royale was nice, but Pavement is more modern and brighter - feels less like a basement cafe. Can't go wrong with a tequila sunrise.
  • If you're just ordering coffee and/or pastries, go to the registers at the front for more express service.
  • no more free wifi :( only 2 hours complimentary.
  • Waited for 25 min for an iced coffee. I miss Espresso Royale
  • The turkey avocado sandwich is amazing. Try to go before 3pm because they tend to run out of bagels and certain ingredients after that. They always have coffee and tea though!
  • Lighting in the bathroom is superb. Great for a quick confidence booster
  • waited 35 mins for a bagel. don't do it.
  • you can turn in your old red rewards card from erc for a free coffee! then sign up for their new rewards system
  • They've totally redone the place and it's amazing!!
  • Significantly less seating (seriously - tables but no chairs?) and outlets.
  • The separate coffee & tea line moves quickly! Much faster than waiting in the full menu line
  • pay with square
  • Delicious espresso. Ask your server for a pastry recommendation, too; you can't go wrong.
  • Blue State has better chai lattes. These are not as creamy and watery. Spanish latte makes up for it.
  • Claire thinks she found the perfect atmospere for studying! Take a look at her Favecast here!
  • Always seems to be busy but a great study environment.
  • Good music, nice customer service, excellent lox bagel sandwich. I've tried three other places' lox bagel in Boston and they do not come close.
