I love this place for either coffee to go or for working and reading there while having a cappuccino. I returned there regularly when staying in Amherst.

So much better than Starbucks. The espresso drinks are lovingly made with milk designs on top of your drink, usually the sign of great coffee. Not only is the coffee great and atmosphere cool, but the whiskey bar is tops. We enjoyed two nights in Amherst coming here post dinner to have some wine, sipping whiskey, some specialty drinks and the most delicious manchego cheese with truffle oil and honey EVER - what a great combo. Rarely have a seen such a great collection of hard to find cocktail drinks - Fernet Branca, Amaro, Campari - I might have been in Italy. The bartender was very knowledgeable. I wish we had a place like this in our hometown.

Great coffee and a lovely small wine bar, but it's almost impossible to find seating in this place throughout the day. People come with their laptops and stay all day. I wish they'd somehow encourage turnover at the tables so new customers would have a chance of getting a seat. The food selection is pretty minimal--cookies, yogurt, or scones. Watch out if you walk in with a frozen yogurt in hand from goBerry next door--they will run you out. The atmosphere is quite European and definitely adds some sophistication to Amherst options.

This coffee shop also has a wine bar at night, and is the place where many students, faculty and residents of Amherst get their daily brew (or Odwalla or Orangina) and hang out, some working hard at their computers alone at the window, others chatting at longer tables.
