Just had a quick breakfast sandwich and a cuppa. The dark roast was a bit on the bitter side. The egg and bacon sandwich with cheese on an English Muffin was very tasty, but a bit greasy.

Love this little coffee spot in the middle of Williams College campus. Garage doors open up in the summer making it seem a lot bigger. The treats are to die for and coffee is great; a bit expensive but deeeelious!

I visited this cafe on the Tuesday after Dales service. The music was pleasant and quiet enough for chitchat. I had the iced tea, and it was very good. The service was also very good, and it was overall a great experience.

It depends what you call a meal. They do serve quiche, and bagels with either cream cheese or peanut butter. They are mostly a place to get a hot drink and a sweet.
