Best Cafe in Harvard Square: Crema

Good god they have a lot of fun soups, pastries, and quiches here. I wanted to try everything.

It's too bad it was totally crowded, but my friend and I did find some seats at the bar. You may have to go at really off times in order to do any laptop-ing here. Come instead for a nice breakfast and coffee or lunch with a friend.

Canele Bordelaise - $2 - A really nice, if indulgent amount of caramel
Strawberry Chocolate Casil cupcake -  $2.21 after tax
I really don't like cupcakes and their frosting that much, but the combo was kind of interesting, so once again I accidentally ordered one. The good news was that there was some brownie mix-like center to this cupcake. Basil-wise, though, I could've used more than one candied leaf. Maybe there was supposed to also be some infused in there, but I couldn't taste it. Either way, I've finally learned my lesson: do not fall for cupcakes. Cupcakes suck.

Honey Walnut Thyme Scone - $2.50 - A pretty hard exterior, not as soft inside as I'd like either, but good flavors

Americano was creamy and wonderful, not very bitter at all, a mild 9/10
