Urban Feel in Small Town Brattleboro

Mocha Joe's has the feel of an urban coffee bar but at the same time is totally Brattleboro in spirit. If you are distracted by too much choice, maybe you should head up the street but if not, you've come to the right place. The chalk board is full of daily offerings and the counter holds delicious... read more

Was visiting Brattleboro over the holiday and while walking through town one night came across Mocha Joe. Had heard excellent things about them so stopped in for a cup only to find that they are pet friendly! Our golden retriever in tow, we order two drinks, which were beyond excellent, and had a fun time chatting it up with the... More

Great spot to warm up and grab vegan desserts. You'll feel like a local here and contemplate relocating. Grab a cup of Joe and finish the crossword. You deserve the break.

I travel frequently and love coffee. I've never had any that compares, even in Italy or major metropolitan areas. For my taste, theirs is simply the best. I'm there primarily there to purchase beans or coffee for take-out.

Tucked away in downtown Brattleboro in a really neat little café is one of the best coffee bars there is! Cool, hip and just darn good coffee.....quick!

I didn't like this cafe as it was underground and sort of thrown together (maybe that's a bohemian look they like) with odd chairs and tables and random books and art around. Not comfortable. Coffee is nice enough but a bit bitter in our experience, we didn't eat anything so can't comment on that. Such a pity there aren't many... More

It's a shame that with so few local options, the most available is so awful. Mocha Joe's has cornered the market in and around Brattleboro, but it's almost impossible to find anyone who is forced to sell it or buy it who actually likes the stuff. Bitter and nasty.

Mocha Joe concentrates on good coffee bean sourcing, prepared to your taste. We didn't take a seat, as we just wanted a good coffee to take with us, but the place has casual funky seating - sofas and chairs, for those who want to stay and sip.

A great place to enjoy a good cup of coffee and fresh pastry. Locals hang here, so if you're visiting, it's a great place to people watch and eavesdrop on the Brattleboro community.
