At MassDrive we love having our office in the Fort Point section of Boston, and we’ve been getting a lot of new neighbors lately! We love trying new places, and supporting our friends in the area! There are lots of great spots for lunch, a quick caffeine fix, and even plenty of spots for those of us with a sweet tooth! To show our neighbors some love, our sales representative, Shawn Harris, has named his 5 favorite spots in the area!
Bee’s Knees Supply Co. – This one-stop shop is only a short walk from our office, and carries everything from flowers, cheese, chocolate, deli meats, beer & wine, local produce, and much more! Their New York style deli carries fresh, local ingredients and they also have a huge selection of sandwiches, soups, salads, pastries, shakes, and ice cream. There’s also a cafe where you can choose from a large selection of drinks to get you your caffeine fix in the morning. It’s great whether you’re looking for a quick snack, a filling lunch, or even some groceries to make dinner with.
Flour Bakery and Cafe – Shawn said this has to be his favorite lunch spot in the area, and that they make a “killer” BLT. In addition to their regular menu, they also have daily lunch specials and even vegetarian, vegan, dairy free, and wheat/gluten free options. Their fresh, made to order lunch options will definitely keep you coming back, and their pastries include options such as raspberry crumb bars, biscotti, midnight chocolate cake, carrot cake, milky way tart, and much more! Once you visit, the cozy atmosphere, amazing smells, and not to mention delicious food will have you hooked.
Momogoose Food Truck – Food trucks are all the rage here in Boston, especially for a quick, affordable, lunch and Momogoose is one of Shawn’s favorites. This Asian fusion food truck is only a short walk from the office, and is right across from South Station. Shawn loves their bulgogi beef with noodles, and says its a great option if you want to switch it up from the typical sandwich options in the area. Their quick and friendly service is a plus, but just be sure you have cash because they do not accept credit cards.
Pink Berry – If you’re looking for a refreshing afternoon pick me up, this is the place to be. Their handcrafted fro-yo comes in a variety of flavors, but Shawn is a big fan of their lime. You can choose your own toppings from their topping bar which has only the freshest options including seasonal fruits, granola, chocolate chips, almonds, and many more. The closest stand to our office is located right across the bridge in South Station, and they are constantly updating their flavors and toppings so there’s always something new to try.
Starbucks – In the Dunkins vs. Starbucks contest, it’s clear who the winner is in Shawn’s eyes. Even though Starbucks is a huge chain and there are many locations across Boston, they just recently opened one right near the Broadway T Station, which is only a short walk from our office. Shawn says he loves stopping for a chai tea latte in the morning, and there are definitely a few others in our office that are excited about the recent opening, especially since it’s right in time for fall and all things pumpkin!
If you’re in the area, definitely check out some of these awesome local spots!
