Cicada Coffee Bar Gives a Vietnamese Spin to Your Morning Cup
It’s cicada season in Cambridge, and not due to the noisy insects emerging across the Mid-Atlantic region—Prospect Street’s newly opened Cicada Coffee Bar has emerged with a noise of its own: that of its enthusiastic fans.
Cicada Coffee Bar is much more than another cafe competing with the ever-growing number of global chains. With its Vietnamese roots (and a Vietnamese chef/owner), this spot offers standout cultural cuisine with all the metropolitan charm you’d expect from its neighborhood. From traditional Vietnamese coffee to banh mi and other traditional dishes, you can enjoy the tastes of Vietnam with the comfort and convenience of Cambridge.
As one satisfied Yelp reviewer summarizes, “Coffee is WOW. Banh Mi is the best I have had in the US. So good.” Another explains, “The food and drinks here is basically a flight back to Vietnam. Honestly the food here could not be better!” Visit this cozy coffee shop to try favorites like the eggplant banh mi, pho noodle salad, and sea salt shaker iced coffee for yourself. You just might agree with one customer, who writes, “I think I just found my new favorite coffee spot.”Back to Articles
