Coffee Milano TL

Coffee Milano is a nice cafe located at 58 Center St, Middleborough, MA about a 15 minute drive from Bridgewater State University.

I went there with my girlfriend for breakfast and had an overall pleasant experience. The thing I liked most there was the atmosphere. Had a fun a rustic vibe to it with plenty of comfortable seating.

 The food was good and fairly priced with good portions, and the menu had plenty of options for both breakfast and lunch.

For my coffee I ordered a cup of cappuccino which was okay, the worst part being served in Styrofoam. 

The owner was there and super friendly and will answer all questions you may have. Customers seem like a majority of loyal return customers for the friendly and nice atmosphere of the shop. Overall I would recommend Coffee Milano as a great spot for meeting an old friend for food, a quick date or a chill spot to relax.

Borealis Coffee

Borealis Coffee is a wonderful small coffee shop located in Riverside, RI.  The shop is located in the center of town only 2 minutes away from the ocean with a National Historic landmark very close by.  The shop uses only small batch, in house roasted beans from various regions of the world but specifically uses mostly Central American grown beans.  They take great pride in the roasting of their beans and also in educating the community about the world of coffee holding cupping events almost every week that are open to all.  The inside is a nice setup providing mostly natural light from all the windows that overlook the town and the bike path that goes behind the shop.  The choice is yours to sit and stay a while, or grab something on the go, but either way the coffee will always be of top quality and flavor that will keep you coming back for more.

Country Kitchen

Country Kitchen is a small independent coffee shop located on Main Street in Walpole, MA and is open from 5AM-5PM every day. Though it has had a few different owners over the years, Country Kitchen has been around for about 50 years now and is still going strong. They serve bagels and pastries that are made fresh every morning as well as a variety of different flavored coffees, served both hot or iced, which they purchase from New England Coffee. The inside of the shop has a lot of old fashioned decor, like a diner counter for people to sit at and some 1950s era pictures as well as some small knick knacks that are designed to look like some signature buildings that can be found around the town. The atmosphere of Country Kitchen is very calm and definitely has a small town community feel, as the owners are members of the Walpole Community and the majority of their customers are regulars but on the weekends it tends to get crazy, as you can find people of any age trying to grab a quick coffee and a bagel to start their weekend.

Somethin's Brewin' Book Cafe

Located at 241 Main St in Lakeville Massachusetts, Somethin's Brewin' Book Cafe offers a quiet coffee experience with historical charm. The historic building the cafe inhabits was formerly home to the Lakeville public library. The century old architectural design and finely crafted wooden interior provides for an exceptional coffee drinking experience. Rows of books and chess boards, which may be enjoyed at will, adorn neatly arranged bookshelves throughout the seating area. The casual seating style and quaint environment makes this the ideal place to enjoy a book, play a chess game with company, complete work assignments, or simply to savor a cup of coffee.

Red Eye Roasters

Red Eye Roasters, Hingham MA

After driving by this shop year round on the way to Nantasket Beach, I finally decided to visit with a couple of friends. This place is deceiving on the outside because of its plain exterior, but inside is a warm and cozy environment. Sitting by the windows one can see the harbor and the activities going on in the area year round. There is plenty of seating, including a big couch, that adds to the clean-cut, bohemian vibe. The coffees and teas are appropriately priced, and the variety of pastries pair well with whatever selection of coffee or tea are on the menu. One can get coffee on the go, or sit for an hour or two (or three!). I find myself ordering a coffee to go if I am on the way to the beach, or else I sit and bask in the comfortable quiet environment this coffee shop provides. Beautiful sunflowers surround the outdoor seating in the summer and the staff is super friendly. When I am home from school I love stopping by Red Eye Roasters for a little get away from stressful everyday life.

Mellow Yellow Coffee and Vibes NY

    I decided to go to Mellow Yellow Coffee and Vibes in New York. I was extreamly intrigued by the name of the shop and the idea of the shop. The outside of the coffee shop had an earthy feel as did the inside. I really enjoyed the surrounding area as well.
  This small coffee shop was not too busy but I did go early in the morning. There were plenty of funky chairs to sit in, however a lot of people were in and out. I got a cappachino and turkish coffee to try it out. The coffee was very good and I was told they get their coffee from Italy. Other than that, the staff was not the friendliest so I did not get a ton of information on the shop itself. The price of the coffee was cheap for the area. The turkish coffee ran as the most expensive coffee on the menu. There was a dunkin dounts one minute away, however there were a lot of coffee shops on the blocks nearby. I really enjoyed my experience.
