Food Scene
Gourmet Donuts. Fantastically delicious and very sweet. On weekends they have a line out the door and sell out of donuts by 2p. People travel from across the river to find this place. (In Boston, crossing the Charles River is a big. No one who lives here bothers if they don't have to.)

Coffeehouse in what used to be a bank. Really interesting renovation that incorporated the vaults and safety deposit boxes.

Another favorite date night spot of ours. Delicious food and drink. They do a roast pig once a week. If you're there on a roast pig night I recommend ordering the pig head. (Literally, it's the pig's head.)

Drinks & Nightlife
This is the best bar in the square for cocktails and "bar food." This tiny bar is a hidden gem. Separated from the restaurant, this is the bar side of Journeyman. It's a great place to sample some of the flavors of Journeyman on a budget. The bar, itself, is literally hidden. It's down an alley, through a nondescript back door, at the end of a poorly lit utilitarian hallway. Enough people have discovered it for the small place to hit capacity on Friday and Saturday nights, but if you can catch it on a quieter night it is perfect for a couple sophisticated cocktails and bacon caramel popcorn. My favorite drink, the Laphroaig Project.

The Orange Line subway station. Reached by the 91, 86, or CT2 buses. If you are coming back to the apartment from downtown Boston I recommend returning by this station, because of the multitude of buses that will take you to Union Square. In addition, it's a straight walk of 25 minutes down Washington street is you don't want to wait for the bus.
