It’s easy to forget about the stalwarts, but Daedalus, housed in a former greenhouse on the outskirts of Harvard Square, deserves another look. The roof deck here is serene and spacious, the perfect spot for both after-work drinks and a Sunday hangover brunch. Red umbrellas protect the sun-phobic, while ceiling fans cool down the covered tables; lush flower boxes add a bit of chlorophyll to the mix. A solid beer and cocktail list combined with a relatively calm crowd adds up to a repeat winner.
