Local Mapleline milk helps make this one of the best places to get a latte or dirty chai in the Valley. The molasses cookies are the best among several great pastry offerings. It’s been a little hit or miss with us in the evenings, but overall it’s solid. Most everything on the menu will have you leaving happy. The benedicts and challah french toast are reliably delicious for brunch, and the tuna salad is spot on even if the salad that comes with most sandwiches is a bit ho-hum.
For dining in, the best pizza in the 5-college area. We keep trying other local options and after a half dozen plus Bread Euphoria remains firmly at the top.
