“Rao's Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This is not a review of any specific coffee shop, but a review about the delicious Rao's Coffee Raosting Co., Hadley, MA. Many coffee shops in the Boston area use Rao's and Whole Foods Grocers sell the product. But the price is very expensive, and the package provides less than a pound when the beans are ground.

Stumbled into this gem of a shop and glad I did. Good scone/muffin selection, big tables. Good atmosphere.

“Great raspberry muffins and coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I always go here whenever I'm in town. It's a fun spot with good food, nice outdoor seats in summer. Sometimes it gets a bit crowded - only downside.

This is where lots of cool Amherst students and residents hang out. Good coffee and tea, nice baked goods, lots of room to spread out with your computer and books.

“Great Cafe”

I hit up Rao's 3 or 4 times on this trip. Service is always great, and the tea selection is wonderful.
