Time Out Market Boston, Fenway’s premier food and cultural hall, now offers a new day-to-night experience. Allowing the Market to open at 7:30 a.m. on weekdays, its newest concession Say Coffee Co. starts coffee lovers' days with Vietnamese-rooted coffee, tea and crepes. After a morning cup or afternoon pick-me-up at Say Coffee, visitors can imbibe on the new spring cocktail menu from the Time Out Market Bar. The Market’s two bars, each conveniently located at opposite ends of the food hall, are open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Say Coffee Co.
Say Coffee Co. was founded by Yeanie Bach and Phi Pham, the duo behind Fenway’s Vietnamese cafe Phinista and West Roxbury’s Vietnamese sandwich spot Banh Mi Oi. Used in the same context of “drunk in love” or “drunk from alcohol,” “say” means intoxicated in Vietnamese.
“We are excited to bring Say Coffee Co. into the Time Out Market family. Their flavorful coffees, mouth-watering crepes and specialty beverages, like the Purple Ubae, are going to bring a new, and aromatic, energy to the Market," said Michael Minichello, General Manager of Time Out Market Boston.
Lovers of coffee and tea, Bach and Pham believe coffee should be enjoyed for its authenticity and richness. With Say, the couple continues to spotlight Vietnamese-rooted, fair trade coffee that is bold and rich in taste and flavor.
Say Coffee presents a menu of specialty beverages featuring matcha (Matcha Latte), ube (Purple Ubae) and boba (Crème Brûlée Boba) in addition to brewed coffee, cold crew, and other espresso-based drinks. Loose leaf teas include Black Assam, Earl Grey, and Hibiscus, along with Passion Guava iced tea and Thai Iced Tea.
Sweet crepes including the Banana Sundaze (banana, cream, almond, nutella), A Day at Say (strawberries, cream, almonds and a cocoa glaze), and Nutella La Land (classic nutella) are featured alongside locally-baked pastries.
Located off the Park Drive entrance of the Market and next to Union Square Donuts, Say Coffee Co. opens at 7:30 a.m. for morning coffee and treats on weekdays and at 9 a.m. for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. Order at the counter, online or on the Time Out Market Boston app for dine-in or to take out before a day of exploring Boston.
Keeping in line with Time Out Market’s mission to bring the best of the city under one roof, Time Out Market Bar’s beverage program highlights the people and places that make Boston a world-class city. The new spring cocktail menu takes inspiration from the menus and beverage programs of the Market’s chefs and calls upon the season’s freshest ingredients for unique specialty offerings in single and shareable formats.
Spring cocktail highlights include:
- The Earl of Fenway - a collaboration with Say Coffee featuring Blue Flower Earl Grey tea, Gunpowder Irish Gin, blackberry, lemon, and mint
- Vodka & Chill - seasonal gelato from concessionaire Gelato & Chill is complemented with Deep Eddy Vodka and Prosecco
- Summer Sbagliato - A creation in tandem with local Boston cocktail influencer Katie Stryjewski (@garnish_girl) made with strawberry-infused Martini Fiero, Prosecco, ambrato vermouth, and basil
- The Two In The Watermelon (frozen)- A duo of Frosé (Grey Goose Essence Watermelon Basil, grenache, watermelon, pomegranate, lemon) and Frozen Margarita (Tequila, green melon, lime, agave) served in a watermelon vessel and meant for two to share; can also be ordered as a single cocktail.
Pair cocktails with the Market’s 15 home-grown food concepts, get drinks with friends before a game at Fenway Park, or to sip on while enjoying one of the Market’s curated events (including Friday and Saturday night DJ sets and live music during “Sunday Funday” afternoons). A variety of non-alcoholic and low-alcohol options (such as Maine Root Soda to Del’s Lemonade) and an all-star, all-local New England beer list (including a Time Out Market collaboration with Plymouth’s High Limb Cider) are also available.
