Cambridge Coffee Bar slings specialty coffee, smoothies, and other blended drinks alongside its pastries crafted from time-tested Cambridge family recipes. Caffeine seekers can quench their cravings with delectable slurps from a 12-ounce americano ($1.99), white-mocha latte ($3.49), or café au lait ($2.69), and sippers seeking chillier ways to increase their liquid intake––besides eating mouthfuls of snow––can opt for an espresso and vanilla ice-cream blend, such as the 16-ounce Caramelicious ($4.49) or a fruit blend available in six fructosey flavors ($3.49).
Nestled in a luxury hotel overlooking the majestic water of Crescent Beach, Spa at Inn by the Sea relaxes strung-out salty dogs with its muscle-mellowing massage services in a cozy shoreside-themed environment. Guests will dive headfirst into a 15-minute consultation to determine the preferred knead and the viscosity of maple syrup. A sure-handed therapist will then run a soothing suite of hand-to-muscle techniques, whether the client seeks a mixture of flowing Swedish-massage movements and reflexology or a rigorous deep-tissue massage.
The Staff of Easy West Healing Arts are passionate about helping their clients heal themselves through bodywork, herbal therapies, and reiki.

A trained qi gong instructor and a reiki master also offer classes in reiki therapy and qi gong therapies.
Putt putters can bask in the soothing phosphorescent splendor of Glowgolf’s mini course as they navigate their illuminated golf balls through glowtopia. Courses contain sights such as light-defying blush corals, incandescent fishes, and lush foliage. Each pass is good for three 18-hole games, giving golfers ample opportunity to outmaneuver any vividly bright and very alive windmills that may appear. Equipment is available on the spot, so players won't risk bending their own putters when they chase after that pesky, good-for-nothing, hole-digging, ball-stealing, and most likely hallucinated gopher.
Proprietors Troy Mains and Chris Johnston practice the culinary arts by sizzling steaks, searing seafood, and stacking sandwiches. Entrees such as bacon-wrapped meatloaf entice palates, and a chalkboard conveys libation options such a margaritas. Pub décor hangs on earth-toned walls, and the bar, like the teeth of George Washington and the computer of a lumberjack, is built from wood. On select nights, The Grill House Local Tavern entertains patrons with live musical acts to stimulate the aural senses during chow time.
A community-oriented coffeehouse and wine bar, The Local Buzz serves a morning, evening, and kids' menu of pastries, paninis, appetizers, and locally made baked goods. Pair a trio of nuts ($2.50), including organic nori and curry and maple cashews, with the hummus-, pita-, and olive-laden Mediterranean platter ($7.50) for a perfect midafternoon or early mid-dusk snack. Select a sip of tea or java from Coffee by Design or adopt an of-age quaff from diverse drink lists of wines and locally brewed beer. The Local Buzz plays host to a variety of events, making it an ideal destination for a lively family outing, an intimate evening date, or a hair-raising combination of both.
