The "Lunch in Harvard Square" Blog - Restaurant Reviews

Since starting to work in the Square in mid-August, I'm trying to eat lunch at a new restaurant every day until I can't find any more. Here's my list of the Top Ten Lunch Restaurants in Harvard Square (Food Only). Got a suggestion on a new lunch spot for me? New Restaurants to Try in Harvard Square.

Dunkin' Donuts/Deli

33. 10-5 Dunkin' Donuts/Deli, corner of JFK and Eliot St. Summary: Half-hearted lunch offerings, slow service, but safe.

The fact that there were eight Cambridge cops eating outside the deli on this beautiful day made me feel perhaps a bit safer. Perhaps. The stereotypes sure still do work, though don't they?

There was one guy behind the counter. He took our orders, then walked over to the "pick up food here" area and made our sandwiches, one by one. Eventually another woman took the counter by the "order here" area.

Our guy was very nice, but slow and just learning. He screwed up one order, forgot part of another order, and didn't charge for part of another.

The sandwiches were fine but nothing special, nor were the prices. The bread, amazingly, was some kind of modified bagel shaped into a figure eight. Bizarre, and really not that tasty.

This won't make the top of my list.
