Nice harbor-side morning stop

On my first visit to Newburyport, I enjoyed a run around town and on the Clipper City Rail Trail, ending at this coffee shop that another family member recommended as a meet-up point. I only had coffee this time-- good selection of beverages, friendly service, and a pleasant setting to relax with... read more

I stopped in here for a coffee and got an Iced Twix Latte and let me tell you...I always want to find any excuse to go back to Newburyport so I can stop in and get another...or try another flavor. It had great flavor and wasn't sickeningly sweet or anything. Oh and I have to say they allowed dogs inside... More

Fresh roasted bean coffee and other food offerings, all at reasonable prices. Nice causal environment, whether sitting in, or outside by the waterside. Also, a cool, courteous staff, and free Wy-FY, too!

This place was open on Labor Day until 5, and I arrived just in time to grab an iced coffee which I dearly needed. Just for that, this review gets 4 stars. It was iced coffee, just simple, fresh iced coffee in a boatyard, near a marina, away from the rest of the shops, and I was just thankful they... More

Whether you sit outside, or in, if you aren't a local and inured to the sights of an active boat yard/ launch, this is a lovely, fun setting from which to escape the crowds and enjoy some good coffee.

This is a great find in Newburyport. Right on the water overlooking the bridge that periodically opens to let river traffic through. The staff are great and knowledgeable about coffee. This IS NOT a Star Bucks so don't go in and feel rushed or pressured. This is a place to go and choose a good blend, sit on the many... More

Seating in and outside overlooking the small harbour area. Bit shabby chic but at least there are proper cups if you ask. American coffee shops seem to only provide takeaway paper cups. If you are paying eqivilent of £3 you want a decent cup to drink from. Hope the UK does not go completely takeaway any time soon.

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 fill up early and quickly, and not just on weekends, but there's plenty of room inside and...

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