The woman working at the counter seemed a bit dour but the fresh juice menu is vast and the menu is great. Plenty of vegan and vegetarian eats, plus items for the omnivores. Casual, quick service, fair prices.

Blue Shirt is one of my favorite quick lunch spots in Davis Sq. They have a ton of great wraps (try the Sesame chicken) and a fresh juice bar. If you are looking for a good lunch for not to much money, check it out.

It's a modest looking place, but very spacious and comfortable. Excellent wi-fi. I had the whole grain pancakes. Those are hard to make, but the Blue Shirt does a great job with them. The coffee is among the best I've had.

It does not look like much from the outside and truthfully not much to look at inside. There is a counter you order your sandwiches, salads, soups, smoothies. An adjacent room has tables to eat and they call your name when your order is ready....More

This is the type of place you would be proud to bring guest to... for a quick bite to eat. The menu is wholesome. The smoothies are made-to-order on the spot. Ingredients are fresh. Just know that this is not table-service. It's order to go,...More
