Description: Fantastic new venture run by J.D. Hairston, mad-scientist/cook and partner-in-crime Anika Balaconis. The menu offers Tex-Mex-like cookin' with a variety of tacos (including the delicate and hand-corned "lengua" tongue and beef tacos) with an incredible array of toppings from pickled onions and jalapenos to flavored sour creams, goat cheeses and more. From a saltcod po'boy to the best grits n' eggs this side of the Mississippi -- homemade nut brittles and "cherry pie cookies" -- this cafe is tailoring itself to the tastes of the community and creating a wonderfully welcoming place with an interesting and diverse menu for all to enjoy. The Vegie Melt is to die for!

It's good, it's laid back, it's the Happy Valley writ large. The food is well prepared but a little on the "crunch granola" side - if you're in the mood for good food with a hippiesque experience. - this is the place.

This place is a gem. It was pretty crowded for breakfast and our orders took a while to come. But, the wait was worth it. Very delicious with lots of variety and a great neighborhood feel.

Stopped here TWICE for outstanding coffee drinks (lattes are terrific). Great value lunches all homemade with some interesting sides like house-made pickles, soul-warming soups and very interesting salads and sandwiches. This could be a daily treat if we lived in Greenfield. Needless to say, we will ALWAYS make a detour to The Brass Buckle when we're in the area. P.S.... More

So, my first comment would be that you need to attack the Brass & Buckle with an open mind. Having lived in the area for 6 years previously my initial initial reaction was "hey this is pretty cool". My wife on the other hand, without the valley history, took a bit longer to warm up. The service, the food, the... More

The staff here are exceptional. The food is very very good and the prices quite reasonable for the quality. A real gem for this town. Most everything they make is great food. Cafe mocha iced or hot is really really good.

Always love their tacos, they are so good. Today I grabbed a Vietnamese iced coffee and two tacos and my wife grabbed a taco along with a salad and her watermelon iced tea. Never fails to satisfy.

It"s a breakfast and lunch spot.... if you are looking for fresh, homemade cooking but simple.... this place is for you. Location is right on main street easy parking.

As a fan of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, I think this restaurant should definitely be featured! My husband and I stopped by and tried their sandwiches. My husband said the roast turkey and avocado was the best he'd ever had. Nice chunks of roasted turkey! I had the pulled pork & kimchi which was delicious. We recently returned from Germany... More

You can't beat the Brass Buckle when visiting Greenfield, MA. The food is interesting and terrific! They always have some interesting daily specials and the coffee is great! The couple who own it are very nice and hardworking! Great service all well!

I always get at least one corn beef taco but they always have taco specials that I have to try and I am never let down. Oreo milkshake is worth doing some sit ups for, if not that I will grab a Vietnamese coffee. Salads are always good too.
