A very extensive coffee offering and a friendly relaxed atmosphere You coffee is made exactly to your liking in a calm and attentive manner. The long queue is worth waiting in.

Skip over the Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks and head directly here. Excellent coffee and snacks, served in a pleasant, convivial atmosphere by pleasant staff. Only one negative - long lines during peak hours and high season, but what can you expect? Repeat offenders can set up a prepaid account and pay just by providing their name. What's not to like?!

Although there is a Starbucks in town, this is the place the locals congregate. Great coffee, lots of varieties, lots of options. A small selection of muffins and bagels. And the atmosphere is wonderful. Lots of tables, newspapers to read, and no one will mind if you linger. The other location in Woods Hole is more of the same.

I really like the eclectic atmosphere here, and the vanilla and honey chai latte was absolutely delicious. We discovered this place only towards the end of our stay and I wish we'd discovered it sooner! I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Falmouth. I'd love to try breakfast there or some of the cakes.

I had coffee from here every day. The sweet potato and pecan scones were awesome too. I was traveling for business and stayed across the street at the Inn on the Square. I liked getting out of my dark room and working at Coffee Obsession much better! The atmosphere is laid back and the coffee is awesome!

While waiting for the next ferry to Martha's Vineyard, we decided to stop and get some coffee to kill the time. The shop is whimsical and with a large selection or snacks and drinks and some neat local gifts. The service was wonderful and helpful, the prices were reasonable, and the coffee was very good. We had about 45 minutes... More

Left after waiting for 5 minutes with only 2 people served on May 21. I also didn't like the Hot Temp inside with no airflow and the pretentious menu. Went to the Pie in the Sky in Woods Hole and had a great experience.

Stopped here for post bike ride refreshments (right opposite Cycle Corner) and had a good cup of coffee and snack - tasty quiche and nice pastry.

This is a one-of-a-kind coffee shop in a delightful old building around the corner from the Steamship Authority. Scientists, locals and tourists all come hear for the great coffee and comfortable atmosphere. Locals call it "Coffee O".
