Temple Bar, the casually sophisticated neighborhood bistro situated between Harvard and Porter Squares, melds classic dining with quintessential Cambridge cool. The modern American menu, filled with the seasonal flavors of New England, has broad palate-pleasing appeal, at reasonable prices.

Sit down in the dining room where exposed brick walls, oversized mirrors and cozy booths combine to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Enjoy a drink at the copper-topped bar or sink into one of the comfy armchairs in the lounge. In the warm summer months you can vie for one of a handful of sidewalk tables for al fresco dining.
