With the most attractive prices and baristas in Harvard Square, the student-run Café Gato Rojo is a magical place to imbibe the highest quality specialty coffee or tea, engage in witty palaver, catch some tunes, or read for hours.

We proudly serve specialty coffee from Square One Coffee, an award-winning micro-roaster based out of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, with retail locations in Lancaster and Philadelphia. Square One partners with coffee producers and farming communities, paying premium prices for their hard work and reinvesting into those communities whenever possible. At Café Gato Rojo, Square One Coffee is brought to you at unbelievably low prices thanks to Dudley House.

We also proudly serve MEM Tea, Taza Hot chocolate, pastries from Danish Pastry House, and more!

The Gato is located in the basement of Lehman Hall in the southwest corner of Harvard Yard.

Small café in the bottom of Lehman Hall. The prices are reasonable, but I noticed that the milk in the chai latte I ordered was not foamy (even though a milk frother was present). They seem to serve a small array of pastries but not not Angy substancial food. The hot chocolate may be worth trying because they have Taza chocolate available. Bottom line is that this place is fine if you just need to get a little pick me up, but don't expect café quality.

Stopped in for a coffee before having a look around harvard and found it was delicious - nice outdoor sitting spots too. Walk in through the gate opening on harvard square and you will find the cafe on your left

Small university coffeehouse with cheap prices (yay subsidies!) and--here is the super-secret best part--pastries from the Danish Pastry House, at cheaper-than-retail prices.

Great for students, not fit for travellers.
