About Voltage Coffee

295 3rd St
East Cambridge, Kendall Square
(617) 714-3974

Voltage Coffee is a gem. It’s a large open space in Kendall Square devoted to serving up delicious coffee, tea, breakfast sandwiches, bagels, and regular sandwiches at lunch, but with a twist. Voltage Coffee serves up art, too.

The cafe was all started by owner Lucy Valena. After graduating college in 2007, she launched an espresso catering service in Jamaica Plain.

That chain gained a lot of followers and support, and then came along the shop in 2010.

Voltage describes itself as being “Kickass,” “inspired,” and “totally wired.” It’s an ecclectic cafe, to say the least.

You’ll find hipsters chowing down on their brioche rolls to MIT professors grabbing a cappuccino. Voltage is affordable and it’s known as Kendall Square’s big, open “living room.”

What’s more, the restaurant also has an in-house gallery, so you can walk around and view the shop’s art. It’s all from local artists—something Lucy loves to promote. Customers have the opportunity to buy the art or inquire more about who made it.

Still, the best art at Voltage is arguably the beautiful foam art accompanied with a cup o’ joe. Don’t take our word for it. Head over to Voltage Coffee and see what this local shop is all about.
