Posts Tagged ‘Harvard Square’

We found the best little playground just outside Harvard Square. Nothing gets Zoe and Ezra going more than a whole ton of sand to frolic in – not to mention that there are pulleys and pails all over Cambridge Commons Playground to play with. Check out the cool front gate with the ‘mini-door’ for kids. It’s no wonder Zoe napped for about 2 hours on the ride home to NYC!

Despite all the rain in NYC, we did manage to get a bright sunny day in the Boston area this past Sunday. We were back in Harvard Square romping around and getting some more good eats at Clover. The kids got to see Papa again, which they love because he cracks out the harmonica from time to time and gets them excited and dancing.

We found a new Curious George Store in Harvard Square and finally got to take a peek inside! Needless to say the theme alone had the kids psyched to take a ‘shopping break’ — and we hung out in the reading nook for awhile before buying some books.

Some time ago my husband and I saw an episode of Best Food Ever and discovered this restaurant that started as a mobile food truck. When we heard that Clover was started by vegetarians who wanted to ‘show the world that vegetarian food could taste good’ – my curiosity was definitely piqued. (Oh, had I mentioned I’ve gone from being a life-long carnivore to a vegetarian in the last couple months, due to some revelations by Mark Bittman of the New York Times ? More on that later.)
Clover didn’t disappoint. Not only is the stationary food lab located on the cutest street in Harvard Square – but everything is fresh and prepared in front of you. (Their trucks usually hit all the weekday lunch spots around offices in Boston.) My husband was pretty nuts about all the new technology involved in ordering (waiter with an iphone keys in your order and swipes your credit card, and live menus on LCD tvs that update in minutes how quickly you’ll get your food.) The kids loved making drawings for the walls and checking out the veg and herb garden on the second floor. The chickpea fritter platter was so yummy that we returned the next morning for their pop-overs and breakfast sandwiches. And Zoe loved the peanutbutter, honey and banana pockets. Yum!




mmmm super fresh coffee in the morning!

While in Cambridge we came across this really great hat shop called Goorin Bros. Walking into the store was like taking a trip back in time, or walking on to a period movie set!

This past weekend was the first time that we really got to drag my dad out of his comfort zone and make him join us while we explored Harvard Square some more. This ‘crowded student’s neighborhood’ (my dad’s words) is a lot of fun – and let’s face it, it feels like a big diverse city which is just exactly what we are use to and what we love to explore! Add some spring blossoms and it was a picture-perfect weekend as well.
