We source freshly roasted coffee from Barrington Coffee in Western, MA, baked goods from Iggy’s, meats from Formaggio Kitchen, bagels on Fridays from Bagelsaurus, donuts from Somerville's beloved Union Square Donuts, tea from Watertown's MEM Tea, and delicious milk from High Lawn Farm.
Our name Longfellows is inspired by the Longfellow Bridge, less than one mile away, and Henry Longfellow, for whom the bridge is named. The Longfellow Bridge connects our Cambridge neighborhood to Boston and we see ourselves as a connection point in our rapidly growing and changing community. What's more, there's a good story involving the bridge, the poet, romance, tragedy, and coffee.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow used to walk our very streets and crossed the bridge from Cambridge to Boston to court Francis Appleton in Beacon Hill. After seven years of romance and a healthy dose of poetry, they married. Sadly, he lost his beloved Fanny in a tragic dress fire accident. Apparently, she requested a cup of coffee shortly before she died. We'd like to think if we'd been there to deliver, the story could have ended differently.
