  • Raos was always great. But under Bob's new leadership it's multiple notches up
  • Try the coffee.
  • Try the chai latte. It's amazing
  • The Cafe Mocha is incredible
  • Just don't be in hurry
  • Try an Angry Cow with peppermint
  • A remote office and study space for many people, with fine coffee, food, and atmosphere.
  • Addictive snacks, especially the pumpkin chocolate cookies
  • best iced mocha in town.
  • Eggplant and goat cheese sandwich is awesome!
  • Expensive, but nevertheless a good place to relax, read, and checkout the characters of Amherst.
  • Their Chai is best when it isn't insanely busy. Very watered down when I went today. :-/
  • Worst place ever
  • The cafe vanilla is my go to.
  • This place has some of the best coffee I've had in Amherst. It's magical! The ham and cheese croissants are addictive too!!
  • Coffee has crashed. Not good at all.
  • Great hot chocolate, and it comes in a MASSIVE cup. :)
  • I ordered the mocha and they added chocolate milk in the coffee.. it was like water down chocolate milk and really tasteless..
  • I ordered mocha and they added chocolate in the coffee.. it tastes really blend and kinda gross.. Maybe their regular coffee taste better?
