The Black Sheep

At times unpredictable, but always good, The Black Sheep is the best place for a sandwich, especially if you like yours with progressive political opinions.

Chez Albert

Don’t be intimidated by the menu. At Chez Albert the Bouillabaisse and Escargot are cozily at home with the best burger in Amherst.

Cushman Market + Cafe

Cushman has great coffee-based drinks, good pastries, excellent staff, and the perfect understated college-town atmosphere.

The Hangar

Excellent wings and massive draft selection on the Hadley/Amherst border.

High Horse

High Horse’s ‘Beyond The Pale’ British-style ale is extraordinary, but the rest of their line up is also quite good. The bar food is tasty, but a little pricey for what you get.

Mission Cantina

Strong and creative margaritas, with several fruit-infusions offered. They even make their own sour mix. The food is excellent, so much so that we hardly go anywhere else for Mexican.
