Pizza,coffee,cake and ice cream. Something for everyone! My daughter had a strawberry smoothie and Apple fritter( heated up) that was out of this world. The ice cream cone was over stuffed and filled with cookie dough. My iced coffee hit the spot so did the cinnamon pound cake was amazing. All the... read more

Nice hip atmosphere which I really like but the food is really disappointing. I don't eat meat and their non meat options are pretty bad. Food is heavy and greasy. Too much mayo in the Tuna, eggplant is fried, tasteless and very greasy, veggie burger is bland. Also, the bread is not at all special. Will not be going back.

My friends and I had an great time visiting Java Baba! The atmosphere was perfect for our post-ski meal! We wanted something casual where we could relax and enjoy each other's company, and Java Baba was a fit after returning skis. It has a coffee shop feel, so one orders at the counter and other partons come and go or... More

This local sandwich, pizza, coffee shop/meeting place is a favorite of many locals and visitors and certainly of mine. You walk up to the counter and order one of many fantastic sandwiches or just have one custom made. My favorite is the turkey, stuffing and cranberry 1/2 sandwich with a cup of soup. They also have a wide selection of... More

They have such a variety of bread's, cold cuts to suite every imaginable taste bud, and absolutely delicious choices of bread. Try their rye, but leave some for us. Next trip, I am going to try their chicken salad I just happened to spot after I already paid and was about to leave.

Stopped in here a few times last weekend and we absolutely loved it. They have a wide selection of food options including sandwiches, burgers and pizzas. Also great coffees, teas, cocoas and hot ciders for all your warm beverage needs. Our group LOVED the pizza which was thin crust and cooked to perfection with that touch of corn meal on... More

This is a casual cafe with some really tasty baked goods. Its in a little shopping center very close to the Okemo ski area. There is plenty of parking. They have all sorts of good/fresh choices for lunch. My son and I inhaled their soup and sandwich combo- you'd think we hadn't eaten in days! There were all sorts of... More

Good coffee, good vibe, friendly staff. You absolutely have to get the chocolate bombe. They have some interesting bottled soft drinks under their own brand that are worth a try.

We stopped here twice during our weekend in ludlow. Great friendly place, obviously a local favorite as they seemed to know every other person who came in. Nice place to stop! Good breakfast sandwiches.

Stumbled across this restaurant while on a foliage tour. Coffee house, great pastries and desserts, ice cream - and some of the best pizza ever! Huge pie (19 inches), great crispy crust.
