Fodor's Expert Review Leavitt & Peirce

Cambridge Gifts/Souvenirs Fodor's Choice
A throwback to another era, this storied museum-like tobacco shop has been in the same location since 1883, when it served as a clubby gathering spot for young Harvard men, who puffed away while playing pool on the back billiard tables. While Harvard oars, hockey sticks, and photos still adorn the ivy-green walls, the store now caters to a broader clientele in search of quality smoking items, old-fashioned straight razors and shave brushes, chess and checker sets, and small gift items, such as beer steins. Don't miss the four chess tables on the second level, where you can rent pieces for $2 an hour (checkers and backgammon are available, too).
