Cafe on the Commons Waltham
Address: 677 Main St, Waltham, MA 02451
Cafe on the Commons Waltham is a 45 minute drive from the university and is situated on a main street with little to no major corporate competition. Also, the shop is located close to Brandeis University making it a lovely stop for workers, students and their visiting family. The environment inside is just so lively and friendly it is practically impossible to not strike up a conversation with a stranger.
The shop has magnificent tasting pastries, delicious meals and amazing coffee, lattes and espressos. The shop is a proud member of the fair trade movement and gets its coffee from Dean's Beans. Dean's Bans is a local beanery located in Orange, MA.
The coffee I received was the Aztec Two-Step from Mexico. It had a smooth and nutty flavor with a long after taste. I would describe the coffee as a blend of light and dark roast of Mexican Chipas coffee,
