Fabulist Cafe

In a Nutshell

Located in the heart of Boston's Seaport neighborhood on the first floor of GrubStreet’s Center for Creative Writing, Fabulist is a café serving delicious coffee and espresso, tea, simple breakfast and lunch items, snacks, and in the evening, beer and wine.

Hosting a beautiful scenic view of the harbor and nestled beside Porter Square Books: Boston Edition, Fabulist provides an inspiring space to fuel your most creative work, relax into a great read with a signature espresso drink, or gather with friends over beer and wine after work (or your workshop).
