I always prefer to go to local cafes to support small business and to try some great cofee. This time I was disappointed.The place itself is very nice but the staff wasnt very attentive and the coffee wasn't very good. Also the food selection isn't great

There are lots of places to get your morning coffee in Boston. Wired Puppy is my main go-to place. Located on Newbury Street near Fairfield Street, WP is small like all shops on Newbury. It's great for quick takeouts, but if you want to hang out, there's a room in the back for reading, checking your email, or chatting with... More

This is a real coffee shop even for the most fussy. Every version of coffee and every origin. Great macchiato. Place to keep going back to . The manager / owner needs to find a personality though. Outstanding coffee so what can you say

Their coffees may be good, but their hot chocolate was not good nor hot. Wasn't very impressed with it.

The staff here are always overly friendly and are quick to strike up a convo. The issue is they're all very slow. You can wait up to 20min to get a drink on the weekends. So I guess mixed review. The vibe inside is cool and calm. Along with the coffee there's some good baked treats.

Popped into Wired Puppy for a coffee and cake. What a lovely little place to go. I can totally understand why it is so popular. The lady who runs it is amazingly friendly and welcoming. Coffee great. Prices good. I'll definitely go again next time I'm in Boston

I am obsessed with good coffee, so much so I usually plan out my trips around visits to coffee shops and i wasn't disappointed with Wired Puppy, This place was very relaxed and had a nice atmosphere. It was a godsend as when we visited it was extremely hot and we had been walking most of the day, to find... More

Personable staff let me try a couple of the coffees so I got a good feel for what they do... nice. I settled on the Sweet Puppy Love blend... I have no idea what the name means but it is very good, complex. The Hair of the Dog was good too but a little bitter. Sat at one of the... More

Have been struggling to study with a serious lack of quality caffeine until I found this place, quiet, lovely coffee and friendly helpful staff happy to help out a desperate Aussie in the throws of acute caffeine withdrawal. Beautiful location in downtown Boston.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
