Nice spot

Great atmosphere. Quiet spot to read a book or converse with a friend. Rotating art work on walls is always excellent. Pleasant counter staff. Good tea selection. Good music. Coffee pretty good, but not amazing. Pastry selection is dry, not tasty and not interesting. Used to have live music... read more

Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it and are glad you enjoy our cafe. We are sorry that you could not find anything interesting among our pastry offerings. Please be assured, however, that all our breads, muffins, croissants,etc. are delivered fresh daily from a number of the most reputable local sources (among others, Iggy's and Nashoba Bakery); we don't bake...

This is a great local coffee house, we love the atmosphere, so welcoming and relaxed. Service is great, good selection of coffees from all over the world and you get a free cup of coffee when you purchase a bag of beans. Indoor and outdoors sitting, our only suggestion would be adding a larger outdoor area but this might not... More

It's nice to have a local coffee shop where you can meet up with people or just go and spend time working on your laptop. I prefer a place like this to a large chain. The coffee is just OK though. I've had lots better.

Thanks for your review. A major goal for us is to provide folks in the local and surrounding communities with a comfortable environment in which to work or hang out. We are serious about coffee, though, so "just okay" is not the standard we strive for. Of course, taste is individual (I've tasted some high-end coffees and thought, "Fine, but... More

The Acton Coffee House has fast become the go to establishment in town not only for great coffee and pastries but for casual and business meetings or a friendly place to hang and unwind. The staff are gracious and super friendly which only adds to the ambiance.

Great service with knowledgeable baristas who really like their role and serving their clients and enjoy talking about and listening to coffee stories.... I liked the variety of coffees from the different countries as well as the small variety of savory breads... Price was great - small multigrain roll with small (actually large for a small size) coffee!

Whether solo or meeting someone for biz or pleasure, Acton Coffee House can make a good day even better & a rough one digestible. Comfy, but special too. Delish coffees, teas, juices, & chocolate, hot or iced. Stellar fresh sweets are always fresh & fun too: muffins, cookies, & pastries. You'll have a great interlude, with mini photo shows. Best...

I have gone several times to meet up w/ friends. Each time I was very satisified w/the service, the delicious food and coffee. It has that small town feel where you are not rushed out the door. The place is always filled and there needs to be more seating space. The current seating doesn't feel like you are on-top of... More
