Good alternative to to Starbucks down the street, which is small anyways. Plenty of space at Plum Island Coffee. Staff is friendly. 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... read more

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 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

After ordering at the counter and picking up our coffee at the counter (not table service), they actually ASK you for a tip by selecting a pre-specified amount on a touch-screen, 10%, 15%, 20%. Seriously? What a presumptuous attitude. We were really put-off by that and won't return because of it. We selected 0% and got a "look" from the... More

We visited every morning for our Chai Latte and Espresso Latte and so enjoyed the outside tables looking over the waterfront. Nice photos inside, and free wifi was a bonus.

If you love good coffee, this is the place. If you want to accompany it with good food, its a disappointment. Wraps and panini are pathetic. Hard to find. Atmosphere is California style: VERY crunchy, feels like there's a regular following. Almost feels like members only. Unglamorous location but water views, clean and enjoyable. A few comfy chairs and mismatched... More

I've been coming basically since it originally opened, oh 7-9 yrs ago ( hard to peg ). It's always had very good coffee, a low key friendly vibe and a stunning location. Keep it up as I travel out from Santa Cruz CA to visit!!

Cute little coffee shop with great tea and coffee along with a few pastry and sandwich offerings. Location okay. Loved the brewed cranberry iced tea. They love what they do and it shows.
