Be prepared to wrestle for a seat as the place is usually packed when travelers waiting for the ferry. And, apparently, its the only place in Massachusetts that requires you to pay the parking meters on Sunday. $10.00 fine! Expensive coffee!

Nothing fancy; just excellent coffee plus an assortment of pasteries etc to go with it. One of two locations, the other being in nearby Falmouth. And a special treat: Local pottery for sale.

What a selection of coffees, teas, treats and eats! Can't begin to list them. Regular coffee, Almond milk spicy ginger chai latte, veg quiche, kind bars, sweet potato scone, organic green tea...all made the cut for our gang. You name it, they have it, and it's good!

Whenever I Travel to Martha's Vineyard out of Woods Hole I Always stop in at Coffee Obsession and get a Bagel and a Chai before heading to the Island. They also have several other menu items. It is a very laid-back atmosphere. This is also a Great Stop if you are just visiting Woods Hole for the Day as well!... More

Great place. The only reasons for only 4 stars are that the seating is uncomfortable, basically "hey we're located right in town so we do t need to splurge on better stuff" and the bathroom was pretty gross. Otherwise, the staff were nice, coffee good and the location is great.

Located close to Steamship Authority. All types of coffees, lattes etc. Quick and friendly service. We just stopped by for coffee to go but there's plenty of room to sit and relax while enjoying your beverage

I had the best Vanilla Latte. Tasted like roasted marshmallows and the setting is warm and inviting.

Great local spot for some coffee in Woods Hole or while you wait for the ferry. No frills kind of place, but solidly good.

This is my favorite when in Woods Hole. Great coffee. Nice, comfortable space, easy to read or visit. Street parking is tight in season and not cheap. If you're in the area please drop in and enjoy.

Thank Charles S
