Spring is here and the Coffee Loft is serving a signature iced drink to help you get into the season.
With the heat of spring upon us, Marlborough Patch stopped by the Coffee Loft to talk warm-weather drinks. Their drink of the month is an iced dirty raspberry chai tea latte. With a hint of raspberry over the spiced chai tea latte and a shot of espresso, it is a great way to get some refreshing caffeine on a warm day. When do you make the transition to iced coffee? Do you have a favorite drink you switch to when the warm weather hits? Let us know in the comments.

National Geographic has rated Firefly's in Marlborough among the best BBQ in the country.
Firefly's in Marlborough was the only New England restaurant to land in Intelligent Travel's 10 Best BBQ Joints in America. The list features the best from around the country in what the article describes as America's food. It should come as no surprise to those who have been, but Memphis snags the top spot with Corky's. Marlborough's own Firefly's Restaurant makes the list at number nine, being noted for their sauces and sweet tea. What do you think of the barbeque at Firefly's? Do you think it should rate higher? Have you been to any of the other restaurants on the list? We want to hear about it in the comments.

The casual-dining chain, best-known for its spinning chicken rotisseries and its tasty but often-salty side dishes, is announcing plans today to remove salt shakers from guest tables at all 476 locations, including its Marlborough one on Route 20.
