A local vegetarian fast-casual chain that uses almost entirely local ingredients. This Clover location is open 24 hours a day. The coffee is good, the rosemary fries are to die for and the impossible meatball and falafel sandwiches are the classics. For breakfast they have overnight oats and the egg sandwich - among many other things.

Definitely the best breakfast spot in Cambridge. If you arrive before 10am you shouldn't have to wait too long. After 10am you might have a 30-60 minute wait. Put your name in and go exploring - definitely worth it! Lemon ricotta pancakes are amazing.

Music and entertainment
Places to enjoy live music and dance
The Middle East has been an anchor of Central Square for decades. While it sounds like a single venue - it is actually 3 distinct music venues: Middle East Corner (free live music), Middle East Downstairs (larger music venue with covers between $10-20), Middle East Upstairs (more acoustic type acts with small cover).
