Java drinker's paradise

In a town without Starbucks, this is the place. Brought our British friends here who decided, after sipping java here, that Great Barrington is a hippie town. It is, and we like it that way.

This is my home-base of coffee. I've long since moved away from my hometown of GB and I still proudly wear my Fuel shirt everywhere! Perfect environment to meet friends or do homework and the staff is always friendly. Lots of food choices (bonus: gluten-free options!) and yummy coffee. Try the wired monkey!

Nice people working there and friendly line for coffee but the beverages are just so so and the place is a little grubby. Always regulars in the seats, best to take outside.

Nice service, accommodating (sometimes they will prepare food for you before the designated hours) and good coffee. Happy people hanging out.

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.
