Way overpriced for the below average food quality. I got the Chicken Kabob with couscous - very unsatisfying for the price of $18. The taste was fine but nothing special and was barely enough food. I thought it was a full meal but it turned...More

We visited shortly before the Universities began their Fall semester. So, it wasn't very busy. Our waitress was very inexperienced and clearly was not well trained. I had an omelette which was good but nothing to write an American Express glowing report about. They had...More

The service was great as well as the food. Interesting selection of Lebanese food. I was with a friend and we both loved our lunches and coffee.

The building is off Harvard Square and we got lucky and found an open table on the rooftop patio. The service was pleasant. The food was delicious - especially the house-made lamb sausage with humus.

We had a great breakfast here. It was our last day in Boston and we decided to check out the Harvard area. I found this café through tripadvisor and we really enjoyed it. They were really busy and seemed to be under staffed but they...More

A visit to Cafe Algiers during the school season, with it's proximity to Harvard, will surely be different than during the summer. When school is in session you will find yourself surrounded with students studying, conversing about politics, international affairs, etc. while in the summer...More
