The shop was a quaint with a relaxing music choice. The waffle was great and the drink selection was solid. I would definitely stop buy again for a quick drink and bring a friend.

I love Curio Coffee. I got to try their latte and waffle and both were great. The waffle was better than I expected. The space was small but very cozy and friendly. Would definitely recommend you stop by if you have a chance.

Shannon, October 11, 2019

Great coffee. Waffles are a must get. Great work atmosphere on weekdays when it isn’t crowded. Friendly service all around.

Joshua, October 1, 2019

Curio was a really cute coffee shop I wouldn’t have otherwise found

Sara, September 25, 2019

Good friendly service. The waffles are very sweet. Most drinks are coffee centered, but it offers limited choices for the tea drinker.

Kai, September 22, 2019

Great Coffee and a got atmosphere, waffles are amazing

Gabriella, September 18, 2019

Really good waffles!

Fatema, September 8, 2019

Nice little quaint cafe.

Christine, August 28, 2019

Curio Coffee is such a delightful place! The perfect spot to sit and ponder or to get some work done. There are huge windows that let in plenty of light, and the street is busy enough to keep oneself entertained by staring out the window but not so busy as to be noisy or distracting. I am so glad that Nift led me to this wonderful coffee shop! P.S. You MUST try their waffles.

Delicious coffee, and fun waffles. Super fast and nice atmosphere. I’ll be back!

Brant, August 10, 2019

The coffee and waffles were delicious and the staff was very friendly. We had a lovely time.

Katya, July 24, 2019

Liked the waffle, though wish there were other topping options beyond cream cheese & spices, which tasty but less healthy and very caloric. Taza Mocha excellent as was atmosphere. Friendly and personable owner and just hope he reconsiders the no community board policy. All cafes are for gathering and connecting, and even messy boards help do that 😀

Brandon, July 21, 2019

Loved the vibe/atmosphere with low key playlist, leafy green plants and touches of wood and metal! Can’t complain about the waffle either. ;)

Rebecca, July 21, 2019

Very cozy place. Pretty busy for a weekday. Small menu but good coffee and great waffle

Letao, May 24, 2019

Awesome! The waffles are a must eat.

Elisa, February 17, 2019

Nice cafe! Waffles were amazing! The people behind the counter were wonderful! Great place!

Meliza, February 15, 2019

I can safely say that Curio is the best coffee shop in the entire Boston area. The espresso is always extracted perfectly, and the baristas care about your experience (the cashier accidentally noted that my macchiato was for take-away, and they remade it entirely for a porcelain cup). The waffles are also delicious, and they have added some tasty toppings!

Alex, February 4, 2019

Great waffle and coffee, love the decor of the coffee shop, reminds me of those little cafe in Europe. Definitely will come back!

I am thankful that I have discovered this coffee shop! The service is quick, the barista is friendly, and the coffee is amazing! Of course I also had to try a waffle- simply delicious!

Stephanie, December 21, 2018

The coffee and waffle were AMAZING

Aurelia, December 17, 2018

Fantastic coffee! Wish the selection were a bit wider.

May, December 11, 2018

I love Curio! I had been a bunch of times before and was really excited when I got the Nift so I had an excuse to come back (I don't live super close anymore and my commute doesn't take me past it anymore). Probably my favorite Belgian waffle besides the ones I've had in Belgium.

Ashley, December 10, 2018

Curio Coffee has amazing liège waffles and great coffee; I tried the Taza mocha and it was delicious! The shop is cozy and inviting with its wooden tables and homey decor.

Sherry, December 1, 2018

Friendly Associates, great vibes, amazing coffee & waffles!

Kiran, October 28, 2018

Great little coffee shop! My cappuccino was delicious, and service was great.

Joseph, October 25, 2018

Cute shop with delicious waffles! (I'm not a coffee person so did not try any but I'm sure that's great too.)

Menatallah, October 4, 2018

A great, cozy place to enjoy delicious waffles and warm coffee! The employees were very kind and welcoming. Service was quick, without sacrificing quality of goods or interactions. I will definitely return to Curio Coffee in the near future!

Jamie, September 29, 2018

The owner of Curio was stellar and their service was warm..and waffles were dynamite!

ARIANNA, August 19, 2018

Very friendly and helpful owner, terrific coffee and waffle!

Martin, August 16, 2018

It was 80F and really humid and they had the doors open with no a/c. I understand the desire to be green/eco friendly but it was not entirely pleasant to drink coffee in the sticky heat. However, the waffle was much more filling than expected and the drip coffee was good. Cappuccino was underwhelming but I tend to be very picky.
