Overview:
Barrington Coffee is a casual café located in the Fort Point/Waterfront area serving fresh pastries, snacks and coffee drinks. It makes for a great pit stop for parents looking for a pick-me-up after a long day at the Boston Children’s Museum. Known for it’s sophisticated and minimal space and free wifi, Barrington Coffee is best known for, you guessed it, coffee.

family-friendly restaurant tip This café has a couple picnic bench style tables that are great for families, and the rest of the seating is either in communal high-top tables or counter top seating lining the window.

KidTude:
Okay. Barrington Coffee is focused on coffee, so don’t expect too much when it comes to kid-friendly amenities. They do not have any highchairs but the spacious cafe allows you to park a stroller table side. There is a larger unisex bathroom that can easily fit a stroller inside. While the bathroom does not have a changing table, it does have a low wicker bench that can act as a changing table in a pinch.

Main Menu:
They offer a full menu of espresso drinks, drip and flash brewed coffees from family-owned farms and cooperatives. The cafe also offers a variety of socially responsible and locally sourced products including artisan teas, housemade granola, and freshly baked pastries and snacks that are ecologically friendly.
