Boston Coffee serves a limited menu of sourdough toasted sandwiches and all-day breakfast to its all-sorts clientele. Look out for special offers such as their Pulled Pork Fridays, when they serve a monstrosity of a toasted sandwich – piled up and bursting at the seams with juicy pork, coleslaw and corn.
The Mexican – a jam-packed toastie with mince, feta, tomato, garlic, cheddar, caramelised onions and jalapeños – will hit that spicy, but sweet itch that you've been dying to scratch. The breakfast menu offers items such as the smoor and scramble (sourdough bread topped with perfectly crispy bacon, scrambled eggs, smoor and jalapeños) and the Dagbreeker (deliciously simple offering of a coffee of your choice, two fried eggs on toast and a homemade sweet mustard that accompanies all the sandwiches).
If you have a sweet tooth, try the chocolate croissant, a bite-sized brownie or any of the muffins on offer (they’re always fresh).
It's been a while since I asked for a coffee and was asked my flavour preferences. Boston Coffee is such a place. An order for a pour-over came with that responding query and a roast from beans from Mount Elgon, Uganda, was delivered after being filtered through the paper and extracted by hand – fruity and full-flavoured as promised. You can have Turkish coffee (prepared from a cezve), AeroPress, Chemex or cold-drip. Or you can have one of the best cappuccinos you've had in a while. If you happened to have stumbled into Boston Coffee as a non-coffee drinker (strange, but it could happen), try one of the milkshakes served in a US diner-style glass. Go for peanut butter.
You order at the counter, but the service is still great. Food and drinks are brought out promptly, with a smile and a quick chat. The staff genuinely like working here. It’s abundantly apparent from their uninhibited banter.
Everyone gets high-fived, even if it’s your first time, and the regulars seem as if they’re a permanent fixture of this neighborhood favourite. Here you’ll find trendy top-knots, beanies and beards comfortably sharing a table with the uncle down the street.
Return visits for your caffeine fix, whiling away time chatting with friends or playing some of the offered games on the tables.
