We got tipped some really awesome places for the first week of the Daily Tip Contest! This week, we asked you about coffee, cupcakes and bars, so, here are our recommendations for you to try out:

Located right between North Station and the TD Garden, the Equal Exchange Café is dedicated to empowering small farmers and sustainable farming methods. The café is a way to showcase the hard work of the farmers they partner with in growing high quality coffee, tea and chocolate. The Equal Exchange gets their milk from local dairy farmers and support local businesses to provide pastries and healthy lunch options. And, who doesn’t want to support local farmers?! Get over to EECafé for great atomosphere, friendly service & amazing coffee!

Is coffee too bitter for you? Well, you’re in luck because we found some epic cupcake bakeries in the Boston area. It was a really hard decision to pick only one to feature! To make the choice easier, we went with the majority – Kickass Cupcakes in Davis Square! With flavors like The Mojito, Caramel Machiatto, and the Green Monster it’s no wonder they have so many fans. PS, did you know they have a food truck?! Now you can get Kickass Cupcakes all over Boston!

After you get your fill of coffee and cupcakes, head over to Fenway to enjoy the well-know, no frills dive bar, An Tua Nua. They offer American favorites and traditional Irish dishes by day and draw in enormous crowds by night! Between the weekend nightclub and Salsa Wednesdays, An Tua Nua has something for everyone. It’s really convenient to get to from Kenmore Square and a cool hangout after Red Sox games.

Keep tippin’ & taggin’!
