Locally Sourced

The menu features many locally sourced items, including espresso drinks, drip coffees made with beans roasted by Jim’s Organic Coffee in West Wareham, Massachusetts, and Spindrift soda produced nearby Charlestown. A rotating daily selection of sweets and baked goods features sweet treats such as cinnamon buns, biscotti, and macaroons. Supporting local and diverse small businesses is at the heart of Jenny’s Café, part of The Catered Affair Collection.

Table seating is available inside the cafe and in a portion of Calderwood Courtyard—both of which make for relaxing settings for a casual gathering spot, study break, or lunch with friends.
