“Go here! Go here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

WOW. Instead of stopping at a reststop (blech) or out the Lee Outlets (eh), we found this FANTASTIC sandwich shop. Some of the best sandwiches we've ever had...anywhere. Not only were the sandwiches great, but the homemade Italian ice was excellent and the place was clean and spotless. The owner was friendly and personable, and you can tell he takes a tremendous amount of pride in his shop. Not only will this be our new "reststop", but we just may go out of our way to eat here again.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

We pulled off the Mass Pike for lunch, not really sure where we wanted to go. The Housatonic Cafe with it's bright sign was just up the road and looked like a good place to try.
The building has been renovated and looks great- the inside is very clean with small rooms containing several tables in each. The owner found a table for us and explained the menu. They have a nice choice of sandwiches you can order off the menu, or you can design your own. They make all the sandwiches fresh, and they even sell the meat in their deli. Also available was soup and small pizzas. Coffee and tea plus a variety of fine cold drinks was available. They also make and sell a variety of Italian Ice. We didn't get to try any but they looked wonderful and next time we will make it a point to try one or two.
