Stopped in at Fuel Coffee Shop for some coffee, and this is a quaint place to get some to eat or drink while window shopping in Great Barrington. First of all, I definitely appreciate that they have Wi-Fi. Cell service is abysmal around here, and the Wi-Fi is strong. We were only here for coffee, and so we weren't able... More

My husband and I visited this coffee shop for lunch during our drive through the Berkshires. I had the Californian BLT in sourdough, my husband had the Reuben (Turkey and cheese). Both sandwiches took a long time to arrive, when they did we were both very disappointed, the bread was soaked on both sides with butter/oil that coated our hands.... More

A favorite haunt, this place has great fresh sandwiches, and a great selection of organic teas. The grilled cheese is out of this world. It is must stop on a trip to Great Barrington.

Nice place, decent coffee, free w-ifi. It has a small playroom space in case you bring around children and loads of sockets! a bit pricey if you are not getting just a mere coffee.

Great choice when you crave a really good cup of coffee. I was taking mine to go and had to wait longer than at chain coffee shops, but it was worth the wait. Ordered one of the sandwiches and was told it would take 20 minutes. I wasn't told it would come out from a different window in the back... More

Fuel is a great spot for coffee, sandwiches or just to hang out and catch up on email. They have gourmet coffee and gourmet sandwiches. All ingredients are fresh and their sandwiches are delicious. There is a community board there and you can see local businesses advertise. I would go back in a heartbeat!

It's a funky place with super sandwiches and superb coffee. Long after you've left, the rich coffee flavor will stay with you. Pastry is also good. Our go to place whenever we pass through town.

Dropped in here for a coffee as I was walking past. Very impressed with the Americano and also had an excellent old fashioned glazed donut. Nice environment and very busy for mid Koenig which created a nice atmosphere. Service was also very good. Well worth a visit if you are a local or in the area.
