“Coffee is great, fun place to people watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We didn't have breakfast next door but the coffee was great and worth the few minutes it took to prepare. This is obviously a popular spot for locals and tourists alike. I had a pumpkin cake which was moist and flavourful!

“Good place for breakfast while waiting for the train”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

You can have an average type breakfast and cuppa joe while waiting for the train, if they're open. It seems to be a bit inconsistent with food quality, wait staff, and hours of operation.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I had lunch here twice in a month. The first time I had the BLT and yam chips. Next was a burger and salad. Both excellent.

“Been there since '71 -- they're doing something right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

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.

“Great Coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012 via mobile

A great independent coffee house. Local art hangs on the walls. Best location right in the heart of historic downtown Fairhaven. Went there a lot in college and after 10 years the coffee and service still great!
