This establishment has closed, because it was too close to well-established competitors. Instead, visit Tunnel City Coffee at the bottom of Spring Street.

Sweets and Beans was foisted on Williamstown by an over-reaching landlord who greedily put other locals favorites out of business with this addition. It is scheduled to close immediately after Thanksgiving. For all intents and purposes, it's pretty much closed now.

The ice cream here comes from SoCo creamery in Great Barrington and is outstanding. We had the Mission Fig which had a very fresh taste, PB Mudslide with great peanut flavor, Salted Caramel which had a great flavor balance and Mexicali Chocolate which was the spiciest chocolate ice cream I have ever had.

This place is a sugar addict's dream. The ice cream is excellent and if they don't have your favorite candy... it probably isn't made.

The crepe was served in a cardboard wedge. It was underdone and tasted more like cardboard itself than anything else. It was the worst crepe I have ever had. All the butter melted off the crepe and formed a well in the bottom of the wedge or cone or whatever it was. No napkin offered. What looked like a fun... More
