Great Boston Bagel Hunt--Episode 4--Darwins

In terms of Cambridge establishments, Darwin's is well known and well frequented by locals. You are hard pressed to find an open seat on any given weekend. Darwin's exudes an air of Cambridge intellectualism, with its free internet, large, cushy chairs, and free Boston Globes and New York Times! Its funky d├ęcor and long shared wooden tables make it the go-to spot for students, professors, and anyone who wants to talk molecular biology or comparative religion fueled by a caffeine buzz.

The Palateers visited Darwins to write Palateers' reviews, and in this mission, we were very successful. We even considered writing Darwin's review inside Darwin's, but decided such an act would constitute a form of review sacrilege. So, instead we mostly admired Darwin's breakfast and lunch menu options, which range from experimental sandwiches to classic pastries. We decided it was long past time to try another bagel for the Great Boston Bagel Hunt.

We liked Darwin's bagels for their flavor explosions. The sesame bagel was completely smothered in sesame seeds, which is rare compared to the typical scantily spread seeded selection proffered by rivals. The same was true for the onion bagel, which left our breath tart for hours. Both bagels were oozing with liquefied cream cheese.

While the Great Boston Bagel Hunt continues, Darwin's take the cake for atmosphere and general warm feeling with a touch of Cambridge sophistication.
