Tony's opened in 1971 in the same location where it's now located. Lots of other coffee shops have sprung up in Fairhaven as the area has become more and more cutesy. Years ago in the Farihaven hippie days we used to laugh about the "same day service" in Tony's but that is not the case anymore. The baristas are for the most part very skilled, charming, and seem to like their jobs! Very little turnover among the staff.
In the summer you can get an iced coffee for a buck! What's not to like? They also do toddy (cold brewed extract) drinks and have 3 different kinds of chocolate for their mochas or hot chocolate.
Tip: there's a restaurant connected to it (Harris Avenue Cafe) and you can get Tony's coffee there too. But in the other direction, you can get a limited food menu in the coffeehouse, like breakfast items and great soups at lunch.
