Not only do they serve an entire menu of coffee and espresso but also waffles – their specialty.

Clover is definitely unlike any place you’ve ever eaten, and that’s the point. They’re putting a new spin on fresh food in this all-vegetarian food lab. Their farm-to-table philosophy means that they have no freezers in any location, and the food is prepared daily and to order. The menu can change from day-to-day depending on their food supplies; therefore, you never know what you’ll get here, and that’s the fun of it.
Here’s another vegetarian hot spot in Cambridge, one of many restaurants reaching into the farm-to-table trend. Henrietta’s Table‘s slogan is ‘fresh and honest,’ and their menu is simple, elegant breakfast food. Here you can order dishes like smoked salmon with a bagel, cream cheese, and the traditional accompaniments, or customize your own omelet with farm fresh eggs. Better yet, the rustic atmosphere will take you from the crowded city to a relaxing, rural feel.
On weekdays, Alden & Harlow doesn’t open until 5 pm, but weekend brunch is worth the wait at the end of the week. All of their menus are small plates, inspired by a gathering of friends and family at a home kitchen table, with an upscale twist. You won’t find the traditional bacon and egg breakfast here, but rather dishes like the ubiquitous kale salad, pickled corn pancakes, and croissant toad in the hole.
