Title sums it up - these guys have amazing coffee and are seriously passionate. All of the baristas are experts and it's a significant upgrade from Cafe Nero, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts (all right across the street). Being right in Washington Square, it's very close...More

Does it feel like Italy or Scandinavia here? Not sure, but as much as I like the American/Pacific-Northwest coffee-shop atmosphere, there's something even nicer about the spare, clean design of Café Fixe. And, it's nice to support an independent business instead of a chain.

A bright, airy hipster cafe rife with Scandinavian sensibility? You'd expect these to be a dime a dozen in trendy Brookline - but they're not! This is the only one! There is limited seating, the tables are small, a limited selection of fairly conventional pastries...More

Skip the chains and head straight for Cafe Fixe. The staff prides itself on making a proper cup of coffee. The snacks are to die for!!!

More European style coffee, strong and not your typical warm coffee flavoured milk. Great there are no outlets, and presumably no WiFi, keeps the hordes of Apple Mac toting table hoarding patrons away! Not cheap, but worth the extra if you like a strong properly...More
