We thought it was a mirage

E and I and friends had dinner and traveled to Wood's Hole for a talk given by the Oceanographic Institution and we needed coffee. We suspected everything was closed on sun night but low & behold C>O> was open and busy. It was my first visit and the bagels and pastry looked just wonderful.. We... read more

A great place for coffee and a snack. As of 2/16 they are starting to serve breakfasts and limited sandwiches. A mix of locals and people waiting to catch the ferry. A terrific staff and decent gelato.

Even if you prefer tea or hot chocolate, CO has it all! Plus they have a great selection of muffins, pastries and cookies. They also serve sandwiches but I never seem to get to that part of the menu!

My friend got a iced Americano and loved it. Great vintage decor (I really like the old Phone booth in the Woods Hole location). The Falmouth location is pretty great, too, and has for sale many cool local arts and crafts as well as delicious sweet treats like the cheesy quiches.

First off this place was highly recommended by a travel book of Cape Cod, so went in to waste some time before the aquarium opened. Staff were nice enough but not over friendly like other places, the place looked run down and shabby, coffee was good but served in paper cups even though we were drinking in. It may be... More

If you are in Woods Hole for any reason, can't beat the coffee here. She made a decaff cappuchino for me that was great. Funky kind of vibe here every time I've been that makes me feel I'm back on a college campus. Nothing wrong with that!

Nice place to fuel up before or after biking in Falmouth. Excellent selection of coffee, tea and freshly baked pastry -- scones, cookies and Florentines. Wi-fi. Indoor seating and more seating outside on the porch. Fun to hang out with the academics and international folks at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. Downside: Limited hours (they close in late afternoon); prefer cash... More

Great spot, friendly service and great advice to bike to the lighthouse, including directions. Nice clean bathroom, too! Stopped in twice on a day trip of cycling from Falmouth to Woods Hole and back!
