About Us

Who We Are.

Since 2009, we've been welcoming our neighbors to experience our own carefully sourced specialty coffees, authentic homemade bagels, and community. We’re an independent and locally owned coffeehouse, with 8 shops in Boston and Cambridge, and have been dedicated to amplifying the positive energy that comes from connecting over coffee. 

Our Coffee.

Each season we select only the highest quality green coffee and roast each to celebrate its own distinctive characteristics at our coffee roastery in Boston, Massachusetts. We roast in small batches for improved consistency and prioritize freshness in our retail bags and cafe experience. Imported from family-owned farms and regional co-ops located across the world, we only sell coffees that we are most excited about. 

Our Bagels.

We started baking authentic hand-crafted, kettle-boiled and stone-hearth baked bagels, 20 years ago at our small bagel bakery in Boston, Massachusetts. And ever since, we have consistently been refining our methods to bring you our best. Our slow three-day process ensures that from the first mix of dough to the moment our baker pulls them from the oven, we have allowed our bagels to develop their fullest flavor.

Whether you sit in one of our comfortable cafes, take your coffee and bagel to-go, or brew Pavement at home, we’re excited to meet you!
