Overview

What do you get when you combine one part Rumi-esque spirituality, one part contemporary Islamic geopolitics, and one part college coffeehouse? Located inside the brand new Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC), the Common Word Cafe is introduced by one review site as 'Eat, Pray, Love' and offers what must be America's answer to Paris' Cafe de la Mosque. A warm, culinary environment brings them in and a comfortable dose of Islamic wisdom keeps them coming back. The Common Word Cafe sells coffees, teas, sandwiches, and baked goods in a plush atmosphere with nasheeds and other religious music in the background. Donations are taken at the counter to help pay for other customers who can't afford to eat. Call it micro-zakat if you will. Better yet, call it dawah with a double shot of espresso.
