Join us as we visit Columbia Alumni and 2023 James Beard Emerging Chef Semi-Finalist Vinh Le's Cicada Coffee Bar. We have reserved Cicada's long outdoor community table, fitting 15 people max. Everything is still self-serve, so we will order in small groups. Please arrive early---there is often a line for this popular new cafe restaurant in Cambridge.
More about Vinh Le and Cicada Coffee Bar:
Ten years ago, Le left Vietnam for the U.S. to attend architecture school at Columbia University. During the pandemic, Le’s life slowed down and he decided he wanted to open a restaurant. But not just any restaurant — he wanted every aspect of the space to be tailored to the Cambridge community. The funky lighting, the handmade plates and the mid-century modern furniture are all designed with Cambridge tastes in mind.
