For MIT students and staff, our Kendall Square cafe should feel like both an extension of and a respite from the university. With particular inspiration from the Alvar Alto’s Baker House—a dormitory constructed to foster "an atmosphere of order, peace, and beauty”—it was designed to fit seamlessly into the neighborhood.
But while some of the cafe’s features, like its wood paneling and rounded light fixtures, may feel familiar, its signature Blue Bottle charm is undeniable. Serving up espresso, blends, and single origin coffees, as well as assorted pastries (including our made-to-order Liège wafels), Kendall Square is sure to be a welcome reprieve from even the busiest days. Life is stressful enough—shouldn’t your morning cup of coffee (or afternoon pick-me-up) be a pleasure?
