STICKYBEAKS CAFE, CAMBRIDGE
If Apple ever decided to go into food, this would be the kind of place they'd set up. Stickybeaks is bright, light, with a cool kind of vibe leaving you plenty of room to think, read and gossip. Like a Mac it's a great combination of form and function, so there's good coffee - flat whites of course - and pretty cakes and even prettier salads. Tucked away on Hobson St in Cambridge, Stickybeaks Cafe is mercifully free of tourists; today there are a few women eating a light lunch and sipping glasses of white wine; on my left is a twenty-something with a lot of shopping bags (Giulio); and on my right a guy languidly surfing on his Mac Air with iphone at his side. It's a relaxing place, the staff are friendly and helpful ... but don't bother bringing your clapped out PC laptop. It's just not a Microsoft kind of place.
