A Glimpse . . .
. . . of sunlight through the basement window of the 50-year-old Cafe Pamplona on Bow Street in Cambridge. I love this cafe. It's one of the few establishments left from the old Harvard Square days when independents ruled. Pamplona isn't shiny and sleek like Starbucks or Peet's or the countless other chains in Harvard Square now, but as Todd says, it reminds him (in a very good way) of the days when he was a young college student spending a summer abroad in Poland. The perfect spot to hide out with a good book and a cafe con leche.
