The Wicked Big Cafe serves up great sandwiches. A fun local place often populated with artists. Reasonable prices

Arrived shortly after they opened and was greeted by a very attentive employee. He recommended an awesome wrap, which I don't remember the name, but it was really good. The coffee, the vibe, the atmosphere was perfect to lounge and enjoy the morning hours. They have a varied menu of food and coffee confection. Recommended!!☕️🌯

I know I've been spoiled by living in the foodie haven that is Portland, Maine. I moved to MA knowing that it would be an adjustment, but it has been really sad that after 7 months I still hadn't found a spot that I just wanted to bring out my laptop, order a latte and hang out. That is until... More

I chose the "samwich" and my only recommendation would be slightly fewer raw red onion, otherwise fantastic. The coffee was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient, which is what you want before your caffeine! Easy to access free wifi, with a strong signal. We were in Haverhill for 2 nights and had coffee here both mornings. No regrets.

If you like avocado like me you will love this sandwich. It is my favorite, it comes with chips. They have coffee house, pastries, breakfast, lunch & more. To me jewel is that good. Awesome place. Friendly place to sit down and enjoy the food or take out.

We stopped in for coffee and a light breakfast. Plenty of on street parking. Ambiance is perfect for a cafe: brick walls, high tin ceiling, wood floors. There is ample seating with tables, a small couch, end tables, and several leather sofas. Menu is written on giant chalk board behind counter. Excellent selection of hot and iced drinks. The Pumpkin... More

I recently enjoyed a nice lunch at Wicked Big Cafe with an old friend. Our sandwiches were excellent. They accommodated me with a more low-fat "healthy" version of my choice with no problem. I also tried their banana split latte made with skim milk and it was out of this world. I keep thinking about it and will try to... More

I have been living in the area for a few years and never made it here for breakfast till recently. What a neat little hidden gem! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a Northampton, MA feel to it (if you've ever been there); very eclectic with the menu written on the chalk wall. The food was... More
