Rockin' & Roastin' Cafe

I recently visited Rockin' & Roastin Café in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. It was founded by Aerosmith drummer Joe Kramer. He is very passionate about coffee and usually drinks it before he performs on stage. His brand of coffee is primarily from Guatemala. They have coffee from Guatemala, Ethiopia, and Sumatra. The coffee is filtered using Swiss water process. When I went there it was not very busy, but when I talked to the manager he said that sometimes it was busy during the morning but they do get after school rushes. As a first time visitor, I felt out of place. I talked to some of the customers and they said they absolutely love it. There was everything from veterans people with pony tails and tattoos. I will go as far as to say that it is just like a Hard Rock Café but for coffee drinkers. I am not much of a coffee drinker but I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has not checked it out.

Cafe on the Common

Café of the Common is a hidden jewel in Mansfield, MA locates at 12 South Main Street and it has been in business since 2001. Their busiest times are on the weekend. When I walked into the cafe on Sunday, I was greeted warmly by one of their workers, and was seated after a brief ten minute wait. I could feel the family atmosphere as soon as I sat down, and always believed this was the best part of the cafe. There were many small groups, of all ages. Everyone seemed to know one another, and had smiles on their faces.  Their menu has a vast selection of breakfast and lunch entrees, including their specialty dish, blueberry French toast which is what I ordered. The blueberry French toast was delicious, and it did not disappoint. The coffee served by the café is a Columbian bean, and our attentive waitress constantly filled our mugs with the aromatic coffee. Overall, the atmosphere and delicious menu options makes a trip to Café on the Common enjoyable every time.

Mirasol's Cafe
439 State Rd, North Dartmouth MA
Hours: Mon-Sat 7 am until 7 pm
       Sunday 9am until 5 pm

This coffee shop is an extremely vibrant and enthusiastic place. There are bright colors on the inside and on the outside to grab your attention. This coffee shop stays very true to it's coffee roots by being a Latino cafe. There are tables and chairs outside as well as many more on the inside. This coffee shop seems to be extremely busy with a lot of people, including myself, ordering their signature secret iced coffee mixture called the "Chippi". It was so good and gave me a serious energy kick which is important to me with my caffeine. They also serve Jim's organic coffee which is a fair-trade brand and very good. Overall, the experience I had there was one filled with color, creative coffees and sandwiches/quesadillas, and many excited people to get their hands on one of those signature Chippi iced coffees!

One thing to add also is that it is located very close to UMass Dartmouth so it seemed to have a big college crowd of people who wanted coffee! Overall, it was an extremely cool and fun atmosphere that many college students including myself seem to enjoy.

The Daily Brew Coffee House

I Decided to go visit The Daily Brew Coffee House. The Daily Brew is located in Cataumet Ma. I decided to visit this place because I always drive by and I have only stopped in once. It is a very busy Coffee shop for people of all ages.
While I was there I notice many people sitting down to eat but, many people took food and drinks to go. The Daily Brew serves all types of sandwiches for lunch and all different breakfast options.
They do all of there own baking in house. They have many different options for hot and iced coffee. They get their coffee from jims organic coffee in Wareham Ma. The sandwich and coffee that I had was very good. I Highly recommend visiting this place.

The Owner Kathy Hickey has been in this location for 12 years. She prides her self in good service and good food. She also likes to support the locals by letting them sell some of their art work and crafts in her shop.

The Thinking Cup

The Thinking Cup

The Thinking Cup has three different locations around Boston. There are shops in the Boston Common, the Back Bay, and the North End. They are a very wonderful coffee shop committed to providing high quality service, using only the finest coffee beans, and providing a comfortable environment. The Thinking Cup has been busy every time I have gone. It is always filled with students, business workers, medical professionals and all sorts of people. Whether you are visiting to enjoy the company of others, or to get some work done, the shop provides a great environment. There is a large variety of coffee, teas, refreshments, pastries and meals that the customer can enjoy. There coffee is served fresh, and most of their food is made with organic and all natural ingredients. Overall, this is a great coffee shop to visit, and spend some time in, or to get a quick bite to go!

Better Bean coffee Company

The coffee shop stressed knowing their farmer, and making sure they are supporting someone who grows the coffee in the right way, ensuring their customers receive the best quality. The excellent customer service they presented when I visited definitely made my short stay a pleasant experience. The ice coffee and coffee muffin I purchased were great, they were both gone before I left. They also have a variety of sandwiches and muffins they get from local bakeries. Overall the Better Bean Coffee company is a place I would recommend.

T's cafe

T's cafe is unique to Holbrook, MA as it is it's only location. T's has been in business for about 4 years now and has a loyal following. The cafe is within a mile of Holbrook High and the Holbrook/Randolph commuter rail station, so you can find a lot of foot traffic from these places from people trying to get their coffee. T's offers a variety of smoothies, flavored coffees, cappuccinos, teas, hot chocolates, espresso, etc. Not only do they offer a bunch of drink options, but they have a lot of food options as well! At T's you can find: bagels, breakfast sandwiches, paninis, wraps, etc. I highly recommend the El Diablo, it's got sriracha and bacon, what's more to love? :) There's a flavored coffee for everyone, at T's you can find: strawberry shortcake, tiramisu, rolo, minty irishmen, etc. And for all my noncoffee drinkers out there (myself included), the smoothies from here are amazing! The mango one is so good. You won't find a lot of people sitting around enjoying their coffee, as most people take their coffee and go. T's is a great place for adventurous coffee drinkers who are looking to try every flavor of coffee they can imagine. The prices are reasonable and the staff is wonderful!
