The Curious George Store

Fans of the famous children's book tale (and even those that aren't) will love spending an afternoon perusing the world's only shop dedicated entirely to Curious George.

Juliet

An ambitious new addition to Cambridge's competitive scene, Juliet-run by Joshua Lewin and Katrina Jazayeri is our favorite spot for brunch.
