Best coffee in town (imho)

As you'd expect, PICR has terrific coffee. It also serves a few snack-type things, principally of the sweet variety (e.g., scones, muffins, cookies) and several fancyish coffee/tea-based beverages. (Think Starbucks without the pretense, dumb names, high cost, and obnoxious patrons.) PICR tends to... read more

Good coffee!!! We stopped in for a quick coffee before a boat trip and ended up buying some to take home.

PICR is a relaxed, inviting spot for coffee and conversation. I love heading down to the waterfront to meet friends and enjoy the view!

Nice outside eating, good coffee. Not many options for food to go with the coffee unless you like muffins. It is a coffee place.

Wonderful spot tucked away in the boatyards off the Merrimac where you can find their own roasted coffee and delicious teas and snacks.

Hands down the best coffee in town! Great to sit by the river, watch the boats and drink my cafe au lait. Has a section of scones, muffins and bagels, plus soup and wraps too. Nice place to meet friends or do some work - and of course free wifi too.

The best Latte I think I ever had... my sister agreed with that too. We needed a boost after hours of walking and what a pleasant place and friendly staff

I've been here a few times and wifi never seems to work or is so slow that it appears to not work. If I need to get work done, I go to Panera for the wifi. But otherwise,... More

I don't drink coffee, but love to meet friends here. it's kind of out of the way, right on the river near the marina in Newburyport. Not like a crazy busy Starbucks or DD's. The eating area has tables in one half and is set up like a living room in the other half with a fireplace. It's very welcoming.... More
