Food & Drink


Food Trucks

Just a two-minute walk from the Music Building, by far the nearest source of sustenance are the food trucks in front of Harvard’s Science Center. Check out truck schedules for Friday & Saturday »


Quick Bites

Harvard Square is the nearest area to the conference with restaurants, cafés and bars. Less than 10-minutes away on foot, here are some recommendations for places to get quick bites to eat.

  • Felipe’s Taqueria & Crema Café

    Neighbours on Brattle Street, just off Harvard Square. Felipe’s offers quick tacos, tortillas and quesadillas, while Crema has a range of soups, quiches, baked goods and coffee.

  • OTTO Pizza

    This tiny pizza place offers a creative variety of toppings, so you can grab a couple of slices and head back to hear the next session.

  • Clover

    All vegetarian, fresh and local, Clover serves speedy wraps, salads and plates to go or eat in.



Cafés, Tea & Coffee

If you’re in need of some downtime there are several places to sit down and get some work done or gather your thoughts.
