Amherst Coffee has excellent cappuccino, very good fresh brewed coffee and tasty sweets. The bar (open after 4) has a small but strong wine list and some exceptional specialties including 4 types of grappa and designer bourbons. You can site there all day if you want, which is the downside because a lot of students do just that. Its often hard to find a seat and too crowded to have an enjoyable conversation with friends. But, in order to get a really good cappuccino I'm put up with nearly anything.
