The Boston Marathon is something you don't want to miss, especially if you are in Boston that weekend. It's a big deal for a lot of marathon runners. There is a lot of events happening all over the city but the celebration is definitely in the air. The marathon has an official distance of 26.2 miles. That's a lot of ground to cover, right? But that's what makes the route so exciting. There are a lot of places along the official route you can stop by for a quick bite. As a local foodie,  I have a few of my own favorite spots I usually go to fuel up at and they are conveniently located along the marathon route.  

Angel’s Café

This beautiful cafe opens at 5 AM and it is the perfect morning stop, especially if you are an early-morning commuter. Located at 285 West Main St. in Hopkinton, it's just a 10-minute drive from the marathon's starting line. Grab a fresh pastry and a hot cup of coffee before going to cheer on the marathon runners.
