Henry’s Coffee Bistro
Henry’s can be found just off Mass Ave, boasting a lineup of hot and cold java drinks, paninis, sandwiches, baked goods (muffins, cakes, pies, etc.), and more. This no-frilled coffeehouse and bistro, co-owned by Chris Curran and Dan Young, features free Wi-Fi and snappy service, led by plucky veteran Anne Sweeney. Sipping and nibbling al fresco during warm months is a delight, with a downtown view in a charming neighborhood that features a bed-and-breakfast, Henry’s, a hair shop, and Aesop’s Tables restaurant in a row on East Street. Of course we recommend the enormous three-cheese panini, featuring pepper jack. A funky facade and local artists’ work rotating in each month make for a fun, engaging vibe.
