We really like the industrial style of Forge the coffee shop, and the old-school feel of Forge the ice cream bar. This surprisingly large space in Somerville also makes some good loaves of bread. If it wasn’t for the slow wifi, this would be our go-to work spot, but you can still find us here on the days when we want to switch between coffee, ice cream, and croissants - which is most days.
