“Too expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Ridiculous prices for iced coffee. A dollar more than most places nearby and I wasn't impressed with the quality. Great grilled cheese, but still too pricey. Always friendly service.

“Support a local business!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

We love going to Lala on a Saturday morning. While we may not be "regulars", we always feel like we are-we're greeted with a smile. The baked goods are delicious and the oatmeal is a hidden gem. The drip coffee is always fresh and they have a nice variety of flavors. The "fancy" drinks are very well-made and are comparable in price to the national chains. Try a mango smoothie or a tiki tea on a hot afternoon!

“Awesome Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Great coffee - lots of different flavors. Great drink menu: frozen slushies to lemonade - everything under the sun. The store is a lot of fun to wander around too - wish I lived closer!

“Best coffee in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

The flavored coffees are the best. You get the flavor without the added syrups like at DD down the street. The staff is very friendly. A previous review said they are slow but I've been there dozens of times and had fast service. They also have the option of a cash cup where you can just get your coffee and put your cash in the cup. No waiting for the cashier on a busy morning. It's just a great all around local business.

“Great coffee selection and fresh baked scones”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This has to be the most interesting coffee shop in Central Massachusetts. They have a great selection of self serve coffees as well as custom made lattes etc. they also make fresh scones everyday. There is a wide selection of breakfast sandwiches and great grilled cheese sandwiches. You can also purchase your coffee, either whole beans or ground as well as interesting mugs and tee shirts. The staff is very friendly and after a couple of visits, they will remember your name!
