stumptown coffee at thinking cup

stumptown coffee espresso at thinking cup at 165 tremont st, boston.


I stopped by here soon after they opened one morning and had a nice, quick shot of espresso to wake me up.  They’re the first coffee shop in downtown boston to serve stumptown exclusively, according to their website.  It was a nice little walk to get the coffee – I love seeing the city wake up and it’s pretty nice being near the boston common.




thinking cup, early in the morning.


I also had a nice bacon cheddar and chive scone here.  Just a hint of bacon and a yummy scone-y texture.  it was just about a perfect savory scone.  They also have an affogato on their menu, which I would have gotten had it not been morning.




good morning

I went to 75 Chestnut for dinner, had an excellent seafood stew, and then took a nice walk back along the Common.  I’m amazed at how uniformly green it is.
