New to the neighborhood

Posted by Inn at St. Botolph on Jun 13, 2016 2:04:36 PM


There are so many reasons to love our location in Boston's South End! The vibrant neighborhood, which is recognizable for its classic brownstone buildings, is increasingly gaining a reputation for its restaurant scene and small local retailers. We've highlighted some of our favorite businesses in previous posts, like this highlight on the Urban Grape and our holiday shopping guide. There are almost too many favorites to name! This spring the neighborhood has gained even more wonderful additions. Let's give a warm welcome to these newcomers!



KAVA Neo-Taverna

It feels like all of the South End has been patiently waiting for KAVA's opening -- and it was well worth the wait! This cozy joint on the corner of Shawmut and Union Park is a Greek Taverna and Wine Bar that specializes in small plates. With nautical rope lights and a hand painted details, the space is the perfect place to enjoy an evening drink. Bonus: it's directly across from one of our other favorite spots, the South End Buttery.

5 Best Coffee Shops in Boston

Posted by Inn at St. Botolph on Mar 23, 2016 1:01:48 PM



A café or coffee shop can be the perfect place to pause during a day of walking and exploring the city, to sit and enjoy a good book, or the company of a friend.  In Boston we’re lucky to have so many options, each with their own unique vibe. Here are five of our favorites that are also just a short walk from the Inn at St. Botolph.

1. Thinking Cup
Thinking Cup is one of our favorite places to cozy up. They serve Stumptown Coffee from Portland, OR which has been named “’Best Coffee in the World’ by NPR, The New York Times, Food & Wine Magazine, and USA Today.”  They offer high end specialty coffee as well as some of the best lattes in the city. We also highly recommend their Salted Caramel macarons and other bakery treats. With three convenient locations across the city (North End, Tremont Street across from the Common, and Newbury Street in the Back Bay), you’re never too far from a Thinking Cup. The Newbury Street location is the most convenient to the Inn.

Boston, MA 0116

2. South End Buttery
The South End Buttery is one of our favorite South End establishments. They’ve been open since 2005 and offer award winning coffees and teas. Pair a hot beverage with a freshly made cookie or cupcake from the bakery. Or if you’re in the mood for something more substantial, order one an avocado toast or a sandwich. Grab a seat by the window to watch neighborhood residents come and go.
