New to the City, we knew this place was going to be on our restaurant/coffee rotation the first time in. Woodstar makes espresso coffee beverages the old-fashioned way...the barista makes the drinks manually, but doesn't make a big deal out of it...just makes a great coffee beverage. The breakfast bagel sandwiches are terrific...we tried The Vermonter, and can't wait to... More

The best muffins in Northampton! Their service is quick and friendly. The variety of pastries, along with the creatives sandwiches and salads ,is the reason I keep coming back. When I have friends visiting we always go to Woodstar and the reviews are always positive

I had a creative bagel sandwich (cream cheese, smoked salmon, cucumber, wasabi and pickled ginger) and a lime Italian soda. My companion had a salad and a piece of toast. The food was great and the atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed. It was exactly what we wanted during our brief stop in the town. Check out Kestrel, a shop along... More

Coffee shops in Northampton are pretty plentiful and many of them serve a fine cup of coffee. Woodstar stands out as the best though. Something about the preparation that makes me go back there over and over. Creamy lattes, perfectly chocolatey cocoa are standard, Plus they have an awesome assortment of sandwiches, soups and yummy baked goods to accompany the... More

They serve Esselon coffee - beautiful backed goods - but the baristas rarely crack a smile - mostly just cranky.

Yes it is a busy place but so well worth the wait for a super sandwich, perfectly brewed coffee and the baked goods from the muffins to breads to the by-far best eclair in the world - make this a go-to place whenever I am in the area. This is NOT an alternative to Starbucks - it is a unique... More

Justing visiting and Woodstar was recommended particularly for their delicious sourdough bread. We had lunch two days in a row: soup, sandwiches and desserts were fab. Great spot,

Woodstar is definitely one of my "go to" places in Northampton. It's perfect for a quick business meeting with a client, meeting friends for coffee, or taking the kids for a delicious treat after school. The Chocolate croissants are absolutely amazing...buttery, flakey, filled with delicious soft chocolate gooeyness. Yum! Add a Cafe Mocha or chai tea latte and you will... More

Woodstar is a refuge for people who -- for political reasons -- want to avoid the more pleasant ambiance and better service (and coffee) at the Starbucks around the corner. Don't count on getting a table unless you arrive at opening time. People park themselves at the cafe, with their laptops, all day.
