Though Porter Square is a fairly small neighborhood nestled between Harvard and Davis squares, it boasts a high concentration of exceptional restaurants — some right in the square and some tucked away on side streets — all ready to meet breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert needs.
Whether you’re seeking a bagel slathered in honey rosemary cream cheese, a local craft beer, French onion soup, a taste of Southeast Asia, or a heaping bowl of ramen, Porter’s got it all and then some. Here are 25 outstanding options, including several just over the border into Somerville, mostly located at the end of Beacon Street nearest the Porter T station.
