Summertime in Boston gets humid like the South. While the two don’t ultimately compare, we’re happy to find fare that reminds us of the Gulf Coast.
So, enter Coast Cafe. Fried chicken just shy of too-greasy, just the right amount of crispy, we have a winner in Cambridge. Mac & cheese doesn’t get much better than this, and their sweet potatoes are a perfect side. Fried plantains and collard greens round out the menu. Perhaps the best of all, their cornbread is worth an entire side order of its own. And that’s how you’ve gotta order this goodness - with about two real seats in the tiny space, you’re gonna need to get this amazing Southern action to go.
Closed Sunday and Monday, make sure to hit this place up during the week or on a summery Saturday for a waterfront picnic or a night in with pals who love catfish and yellow cake.
