The Copper Kettle

The Copper Kettle

The Copper Kettle used to be an actual cafe near Boston’s City Hall Plaza. Now the cafe is gone, replaced by a Starbuck’s…but the steaming kettle remains.

    Wonderful shot, Chris! What a lovely big kettle! Is there actually steam coming out or do my eyes just trick me? My first thought – damn! one cafรฉ less, but then you said Starbuckยดs took over, so everything is right after all ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cheers!

      Thank you,Sarah. All is good as long as there is coffee. . I think as a boy, I had tea with my grandmother here. Yes, that is real steam. How clever, right? Cheers โ˜•๏ธ

        “All is good as long as there is coffee” very wise words – Iยดd loved to have T-Shirt printed with them ๐Ÿ˜‰
        How lovely for you to remember this place like this!
        The steam really is great!! Awesome idea to lure the customers in ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers!

        We could sell a lot of those tshirts. It is really in a central location for locals and hard to miss. My grandmother preferred the Pewter Pot for tea and muffins. If I recall, it was New England homey inside but no giant kettle. Cheers. ๐Ÿ˜Š

      Thank you…I’ve wanted to take a photo for a while but always hoped there would be more steam. I tried waiting for a cold day, but this seems to be the max steam. Cheers!

      Hi: Sorry for the slow reply. The comment ended up in my Spam folder. (Bad Google, bad) It is great that they kept the kettle. It makes me smile every time I pass it. Cheers!
