Great vibe and a wonderful selection of sandwiches and salads. They have lots of tables with outlets so you can plug in your laptop.

“Great Coffee Shop to Study and Hang out at.”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

As a Smith College student I go to the foundry quite frequently to do work and get a cup of coffee. The atmosphere is super nice with friendly but not overly zealous workers. It's a simple, nice shop. You go up you order and they bring the food or drink out to you. The toast with jam is absolutely delicious and a perfectly priced snack for a college student. Good food, and an awesome atmosphere. I get more work done here than at the library!

“Tea, Toast, and Studying”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

I love going to The Foundry. Their food, service, and atmosphere are all wonderful.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but their iced and hot teas are tasty. They always taste freshly brewed and are served very quickly. I also highly recommend the food, especially the sandwiches and toast. The toast is perfect for a snack, served with tasty cheese or jams, and the sandwich combinations are all unique and tasty. Also, their whole menu is well priced for Northampton, as you get quite a bit for the money.

The service at the Foundry is always prompt and polite. Someone always greets me as I enter, and they are sure to move their line quickly. The staff is willing to recommend something if you are unsure, and can explain their menu really well.

The best part for me is the atmosphere. Many of the other Northampton coffee shops feel very crowded and loud, while the Foundry is more relaxing. The music is quieter and the tables a bit more private. It's good for coffee dates, homework, or hanging out with friends. In all, a great experience!

“Excellent Coffee, Nice Atmosphere, Great Place to Do Work”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

I've been to the foundry a few times while visiting my girlfriend at Smith College and have been very pleased every time.

I'm the kind of person who likes plain coffee with milk and sweetener, and they serve some of the best in Northampton. In fact, their iced coffee is so smooth that almost anyone can enjoy it black. The owners, Sally and Sunny, are always friendly, and have offered me free samples of drinks they have yet to add to the menu on multiple afternoons.

The atmosphere is also very pleasant; Sally and Sunny play soft rock lightly in the background, creating the perfect ambiance for work or relaxation.

For great coffee and a pleasant afternoon, I highly recommend checking out The Foundry.
