"I could sit in Catalyst Cafe all day. In its spot along Binney Street in Kendall Square, with windows on two sides, light pours into the large space. Polished gray concrete flooring, gray tables, and mostly gray chairs are easier on the eye than white. Banquettes are covered with gray fabric that looks, if you examine it closely, like an Escher three-dimensional pattern. Hexagons on the ceiling light, outlined in orange, are the molecular symbol for caffeine."
