Gracenote is one of those intentionally minimalist coffee shops, the type that forces you to stand in awe of the barista’s immaculate V60 pouring technique. Luckily, the product is worth the show - the coffee is very good. Gracenote also roasts their own beans, so be sure to pick up a bag or two when you visit. The Cambridge location also happens to sell wine, and for the record, we don’t think buying a bottle at 9am is too early. Gracenote Cambridge is currently open for takeout.
