The team from Cafe Crema, a former Harvard Square staple that closed due to rental disagreements, is behind Revival Cafe’s three locations in Davis Square, Alewife and Back Bay. Revival serves good coffee, and we also enjoy their breakfast and lunch sandwiches. Plus, every food item on the menu is under $10.
