Love to stop at Better Bean for their delicious coffee, especially their pumpkin latte. Had a breakfast sandwich there this morning with my husband when we came from the gym. But, the variety and quality of luncheon sandwiches are amazing. Fresh, delicious, with nice variety of breads and wraps.

Not my favorite coffee shop. But then.... decor is ecletric. Tries to give a Village atmosphere. I am not a big fan of their coffee. Pastries are ok. Staff less than friendly.

I stopped in here with a girlfriend after a nice fall walk yesterday afternoon. The atmosphere of the shop was nice and one of the ladies taking our orders was very sweet and bubbly. My friend had an iced blueberry hibiscus tea - without sugar and it was really refreshing. The herbal teas are so full of flavor all on... More

I came across this place by accident. Very unassuming. Next to a nail salon, which works out well if you stop HERE first and get an amazing coffee. Or get lunch and hang in the Bridgewatwr green across the street. Sandwiches are interesting and yummy. Not your typical tuna or PBand J but healthy and delicious. Everyone who works there... More

I don't understand why more people in Bridgewater don't take advantage of having a cozy cafe at their fingertips. It's so welcoming and comfortable. The coffee etc is great and the food is fresh and healthy. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. What more could you ask for? Dunkin Donuts or Honeydew...seriously?!!? Their coffee beans are bleached and fake.... More

Used to be my favorite place to eat lunch or a sub on the go. The Californian ( turkey with tomato and avacado on a french baguette) is an exceptional sub choice. The hours are wonky and definitely no longer go until 9 as posted on here. They also frequently run out of ingredients but a very good choice for... More

I've been here over a dozen times, both during and before the current ownership. It is well situated in the downtown area with adequate parking and overflow options in the general vicinity. The staff is very congenial- the owner works there routinely- and the prices, selection, and coffee refill policy are all at or above industry standard. Free wifi is... More

Came here on a Saturday morning while I was waiting for the library to open. It was empty which I first took to be a bad sign. Went in and was greeted by the barista even though she was helping another customer. She was friendly, funny and made a great iced coffee. Will be back and maybe have more than... More

Small shop, a comfy place to sit with your laptop and get some work or studying done. Close to Bridgewater State University. Serving fair trade coffee. Great sandwiches. Vegetarian selections available.

This location used to be a passable coffee shop, but has taken a dive since I've been there last. The cafe was always dimly lit, bordering on inadequate. The sparse seating options are all uncomfortable with no padding. There are no couches or sofas. There is one large table which will likely be taken up by college students, and a... More
