I loved the food.

I do love their ham and cheese sandwich, but skip the overpriced salad. They force you to spend the total amount of the Groupon to use it and while some staff members are nice don't expect attentive/friendly service overall. Very hipster, very ambivalent.

Purchased a groupon and took my husband on a date. We ordered the mint chocolate drinks. Delicious. Service was wonderful. Will be back.

Outdoor tables give you a real cafe experience. Coffee drinks and the chocolate mousse are excellent.

Service is nice and the food is good, however the manager forces you to spend over $8 in order to use the groupon. Pretty sure thats not how it works.

The perfect lunch: Pamplona's classic gazbacho, a pressed media-noche (with mustard), and cranberry punch.

Perfect all fresco venue in Harvard Square

The groupon says "1 per person per visit" not one per table per visit. Even though I pointed this out they would not accept a second one. To me this is a sneaky attempt and not inviting for me to come a second time. If you want only one groupon per table per visit you should say that.

From Our Editors

Tables line the sidewalk outside Cafe Pamplona, where patrons sip tea and coffee and students meet up to study. The specials are written on a board outside, beckoning diners to come in to sample internationally inspired soups, sandwiches, and sweets. At one of the oldest cafes in Harvard Square, guests peruse the extensive hot and cold drink menu, seeking the perfect beverage to suit their mood. Drinks at this European-style cafe include unique blends such as the hot or cold Cafe Pamplona, a drink made of espresso and sweetened condensed milk, and the caffeine-free Red Zen tea, which is infused with a mix of lemongrass and orange peel that zings taste buds more effectively than licking velcro. Along with tea and coffee, Cafe Pamplona serves up italian sodas, espresso, and cappuccinos.
