Calling all coffee lovers! There’s a new spot in town and you’re going to want to try it. Cicada Coffee Bar has been open on Prospect Street in Cambridge since February and is earning rave reviews for its food, service, and cleanliness.
Let’s start with the caffeine. The signature Cicada Latte features a double shot of espresso, Duxbury sea salt, and sweetened condensed milk for a burst of flavor and a jolt of energy all in one. Other favorites are the coconut affogato for an afternoon snack, or the Sai Gon Iced Latte featuring Vietnamese drip coffee with sweetened condensed milk and oat milk. If tea is more your style, the hibiscus cold brew with mint, honey, and cinnamon is a must-try.
Now for the food. They serve up Vietnamese-inspired eats with a heavy focus on vegetarian and vegan dishes so everyone can indulge. Favorite dishes include the vegan banh mi with eggplant, avocado pate, and pickled veggies, as well as the pho noodle salad with cured salmon for those who aren’t vegan. They also have delicious baked goods for a lovely afternoon snack or morning pick-me-up.
