Bread Boston is located in the basement of 8 Lowden Ave in Somerville's Ball Square. We are a community of college students devoted to sharing love through hospitality. We are a place where good coffee flows freely, where the staff know your name, and where you will be treated with love—all are welcome.

We are a place that never pushes Jesus on you but a place where the staff believes in serving Jesus by serving you and loving you. We have great dinners, quiet study times, fun evenings, deep conversations, great story tellers, and people who will listen to you. Stop by or reach out!

The 2017-18 school year will be full of...

  • | Community Dinners | a free meal once a month with no strings attached
  • | Small Groups | let's talk about our doubts & explore the Bible
  • | Coffeehouse Hours | stop by the house on weekdays for free coffee & fun
  • | Love in Action | let's serve our neighbors together

We'd love to hear from you!

We are grateful to have communities around us that help us to be a successful campus ministry. 

We attend Reunion on Sundays, located in the middle of Davis Square at the Somerville Theatre. It begins at 10:30 am; you are welcome to join us!

We believe that grace-centered community changes lives.

Starting in September 2017, Bread Boston opened its doors to university students in the Somerville-Medford area. We couldn't be more thrilled for students to experience the coffeehouse and the radical community it offers. Visit us at in the basement of 8 Lowden Ave in Somerville. 

A place of rest.

Escape from college's stress.

A safe space.


Meaningful friendships.


We've prayed for and dreamed about what this coffeehouse will be, but we want this to be your home in Boston. Don't hesitate to share with our staff your ideas and hopes for how we use the space!
