“Great Cafe”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

I hit up Rao's 3 or 4 times on this trip. Service is always great, and the tea selection is wonderful.

“Coffee does not get better!”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Rao's is the town spot for good coffee. It is so good that our daughter in Philly purchases their Peaberry on line!

“Good coffee, chai, baked good, atmosphere”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

Rao's Amherst is a pleasant place to hang out, inside or out. Service is fast and friendly, they make a really nice chai latte, and the cookies and other baked goods are fresh and tasty, and not overly sugary. Probably the best coffee place in Amherst Center -- no chain store, no pretension, just comfortable!

“Awesome.......”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

I love Rao's coffee and their selection of loose leaf tea is great as well. They make one of the best chocolate chip cookies and if they have any chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting you are in luck.
