I had a huge number of presents to buy for people while I was in a month long placement at Harvard - and this made it so easy for me. Great selections, great range and prices and fantastic service.

Very friendly service at the Cafe in the Coop. Location is perfect if you are doing anything near Harvard. The cafe is on the second floor and the bonus is you get to check out the books after your coffee & treats.
