Boston: Thinking Cup


Location: 165 Tremont Street, Boston, MA Honestly, this place should be called thinking crap. Hands down, the worst Earl Grey I’ve ever tasted…and I’ve tasted plenty.  And besides, the chocolate croissant was nothing to write home about.  Boo.  Very disappointing.  Someone quickly direct me to a good bakery/coffee shop.  I miss Le Gourmand.

It’s the perfect spot for a giggly group of girls women to go … Continue reading
