Vester is a Scandinavian-inspired coffee shop in Kendall Square, which means your smørrebrød will come with a side of clean lines and houseplants in gray pots. The Nordic aesthetic does make Vester feel distinctly different from the other coffee shops in the city, and in our opinion, that’s a good thing. The downside is that there’s limited seating at this minimalist cafe, but if you can beat the lunch crowd, it’s worth a visit.
