Reviews for Algiers Coffee House

over a year ago

Nice cozy place - Ok Couscous - Delicious "Ghribia" – It's a pleasant place with a so so couscous (for "conaisseur"). Service was fast and courteous.

I was expecting a lamb chunk with the couscous I got grilled pieces of lamb not bas at all.

Overall we had a high expectation... I didn't ask if the meat was hallal?

Bonne continuation.

Citysearch Editorial Review – Part cafe, part restaurant, Algiers feels like a European postcard reincarnate. Dark wooden tables may be set too close for comfort for some, but the slightly chaotic atmosphere and leisurely service invite those in need of strong caffeine into a sense of time and place that is conducive to deep conversation, long study hours and catching up with friends. In addition to specialty coffees and exotic teas by the pot, which regulars venerate, Algiers serves a cornucopia of Middle Eastern sandwich fare, Italian sodas, and an expanded selection of beer and wine.

This is a great cafe to go to when you want to linger over coffee and conversation with a friend.

Doesn't Recommend

Terrible place to eat – Every meat dish we ordered was overcooked and burned - tasted like charcoal and was like eating leather strips. The couscous was bland and the veggies equally tasteless. At $15 an entree you expect better. Definitely not recommended as a place for lunch or dinner.

Editorial Review – Mediterranean-North African cafe sits atop the Brattle Theatre and is popular with area academics in need of strong coffee.

relaxed and fun – Really fun drinks and food and very friendly staff. My new hang out!

Harvard Square Institution – Above the Brattle Theatre, this institution in Harvard Square provides enough aesthetic pleasure and clarity of mind to do one's work in. The sandwiches are excellent, as is the arabic coffee. Prices are steep, but worth the atmosphere, if you've come to study. Upstairs, you can smoke.
