We ordered breakfast sandwiches which were good. Their staff was not as friendly as you would expect from a local store.

Darwins makes great sandwiches. Period. I am particularly fond of the Fayerweather with avocado on pepper jack. Messy and wonderful!!

A friend invited me for tea - great selection - had a nice Chinese green. A big pot for a reasonable price (take that TeaLux!) We got a little table, but, it wasn't that easy. Busy place during and after lunch. But, great wifi and no worries about staying as long as you like. Good spot.

great choice of sandwiches for everyone. A very vibrant place during lunch hour, the whole place is jammed with Harvard students.

We have been going to this place regularly, but since a few weeks ago we are noticing a huge change in the taste and quality of sandwiches. That'd a pity, as we used to go there for the good food...

Spotted this place when I was walking to the rase in the morning and decided to come back for lunch. Got my order wrong and my wife's sandwich was impossible for her to eat - it basically fell apart. Where to place your was a little confusing and the lady behind counter was somewhat rude in providing guidance. Paid extra... More

Darwin's has imaginative sandwiches made with excellent bread. Whether you'll be happy with the filling depends very much on who is making the sandwich and how busy the counter is--you take your chances. The pastries are also unreliable: v. good if fresh, but one wonders if they sit in the case until sold . . . They can be sublimely... More
