In Somerville, Massachusetts, on the outskirts of Boston sits a picturesque cafe cute enough to live up to the children’s story it is cleverly named after. 3 Little Figs, has much more than figs.
3 Little Figs
278 Highland Ave
Somerville, MA 02143
I have been frequenting the coffee shop ever since I moved to the area last summer. It has proved to be a great place for hot or cold drinks, supplying me with the caffeine fix through out New England’s long and miserable winters and hot and humid summers.
True to the area’s diversity and Somerville’s vast ethnic food scene, 3 Little Figs makes delicious Greek inspired dishes from the traditional Spanikopita to a sandwich with Haloumi cheese.
The egg and feta breakfast sandwich on a brioche roll has been my go to weekend brunch item. They also have decadent and amazing pastries. The lavender biscuit and blueberry coffee cake are among my favorites. While they serve Gimme Coffee from not too far away in Ithica, New York, they use milk from right here in Massachusetts.
They don’t allow customers to use their wifi on the weekends or even bring laptops, so customers can chill out and not worry about work. But for Monday – Friday, this is a great place to cram before a test or get your food blogging done.
