There are many things to do in Central Square, a neighborhood in Cambridge MA. Central Square is one of the oldest neighborhoods and many buildings still reflect this with their brick facades and ornate stoops.
Central Square has become a hub for Boston’s innovation district that includes tech start-ups, institutions like MASS MoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art), multinational corporations such as Google , Microsoft and Amazon, art galleries, restaurants and much more.
Dinner time can be spent at The Franklin Restaurant or Cafe Algiers on Mass Ave., both serving contemporary American cuisine with influences from Spanish tapas to Lebanese couscous dishes.The Black Rose Irish Pub offers excellent Irish breakfasts all day long while Schraft’s Bakery satisfies nostalgic cravings for baked goods.
Central Square is also a great destination place to relax and take in the city air with its many street side cafés, like La Colombe or Aroma’s Coffeehouse plus outdoor eateries that are open seasonally; Spring Street Café offers an all-vegetarian menu while Taqueria el Carretonco has authentic Mexican dishes such as tacos made from corn tortillas topped with cilantro, onion and lime juice.
