Suffolk University, a private college lies right in the Downtown area of the city of Boston. It can surely get crowded at times, so finding a place to study by yourself or with your friends can be difficult. Here are 10 most popular study cafes near Suffolk University:
Caffe Nero is right near the university’s dorms so you never have to walk far in Boston’s very cold weather. Grab a sandwich, cappuccino or maybe a decorated latte for that artistic feeling and watch the Downtown traffic go by. Some nice classical music is always playing and is moderately quiet to get your papers and studying done. Who knows you may find someone doing the same work as you? Or maybe become interested in someone else’s work and possibly work together?
Right next to the Modern Theatre dorms and around the corner of 10 West and 150 Tremont dorms is Boston Common Coffee Company. The place is bigger in terms of the seating and space inside. Fresh coffee and delicious pastries may probably get you to walk right past that Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks. It can become crowded with the morning commuters heading to the office and also the students leaving their classes for the afternoon. You may even see someone you know working there who also goes to Suffolk too.
Back Deck in Boston’s Downtown Crossing lies on the corner between both dorms. A great place to study and catch up with friends along with some comfort food dinner. If you’re 21 and older, also grab some drinks and have some fun on a Friday night. This place has some good burgers and comfort food like tacos and kabobs. Perfect to grab some friends after class and get some lunch here and get your study session started. Has that backyard feel to it with the furniture making you feel like you’re outdoors during the summertime. It gets your energy up and running.
Located right within the Boston Public Library, the Map Room Cafe is a classical cafe with classical music playing. You can eat inside or right on the patio garden enjoying a performance or gathering with a friend on a sunny afternoon day. It is slightly expensive for the average college student, just keep that in mind when passing by this cafe.
Panera Bread is right down the street from the university. It’s mostly quiet except at lunchtime, the busiest time of the day. This is good especially on the coldest day in the city of Boston. Maybe some broccoli mac & cheese or a hot panini sandwich to warm you up from the blustery snow and wind. Then lay your books down and get studying while enjoying some comfort food.
Tatte Bakery & Cafe has multiple locations but one lies right in the historic Beacon Hill. This place gives that modern, homestyle, country feeling. Enjoy some pastries and hot beverages while watching Beacon St traffic passes by. Students from Emerson and Suffolk walk up Charles St to escape that noisy city life and enjoy some tranquility on one of three hills in Boston.
Ogawa Coffee lies right in the Financial District of Downtown Boston. A Japanese style cafe has such a modern style to it. However it can get noisy, but that is because of the machines to make lattes and cappuccinos. We all have experienced this when going to Starbucks or some fancy coffee shop. Perfect here is the latte art and their prepared sandwiches plus salads. Personally I like their Teriyaki Stir Fry and Matcha Sundae when I should decide to treat myself. Their menu items are of such high class distinguishing itself from all of those old-school coffee shops.
George Howell Coffee is a small cafe in Newtonville, MA. If you live near there or are willing to commute via the commuter rail there, then this may be the place for you. They are very extensive in terms of their coffee and can help you in your preference of beverage. It’s not the usual corporate coffee/bakery place located right in the city, instead it’s a neighborhood modern-style cafe. Take an adventure during a weekend out into the metrowest suburbs of Boston.
In between the two Downtown colleges of the city, Emerson and Suffolk University is Thinking Cup. I will say this place has some really good latte art that they make. I know a friend who works there and he has an instagram where he shows off his latte art skills. Who knows you may see someone working there showing their expertise? Grab a bite or a drink near your dorm and simply head off to your class on Beacon Hill.
Cafe De Boston has the high upscale food if you’re looking for something modern and somewhat fancy. It does get busy especially during the lunch hour right in the heart of the Financial District. Grab something from the various options at the buffet or maybe a warm soup. You’ll find something in the line that will match your taste buds.
