"Live slowly to understand deeply," the mantra of Vietnamese monk and spiritual leader Thích Nhất Hạnh and co-owners Vinh Le and Duong Huynh. At Cicada, it's all about the experience; the artwork, the marble tables, the plant life carefully placed throughout the restaurant. It's an aesthetic masterpiece.

Chef Vinh has crafted a thoughtful selection of offerings; bahn mi, noodles, as well as stunning coffee drinks. Our personal favs are the salmon bahn mi, made spicy, of course and the sea salt shaker made with Viet phin dripped coffee, Maine sea salt, sweeten condensed milk, topped with lush foam.

Stop by Cicada, enjoy the food & beverages, and soak up the exceptional vibes. This has already become a Central Square must.
