This is a help yourself hole in the wall that serves delicious desserts. You walk up to the counter to order and then seat yourself at what is usually a tiny wobbly table. It appears to be more like a college hang-out but for the prices they charge you would expect a up-scale establishment. However, the food is exceptional. No... More

This is a great place to stop to recharge after visiting the sights that downtown Worcester can offer. It's a great hangout to have your coffee and baked goodies, and for the price you pay, you might as well sip your beverage, and sit a spell and take in the ambience and the wonderful aroma of all these baked goodies.

The good: products are good quality. The bright food coloring on certain decorated cookies and cupcakes was a bit off putting as far as eating them is concerned. Art work was good though. There were 6 in our party and I thoroughly do not recommend this place for any more than 2. Not much seating or space around the area.... More

This coffee house is near WPI and is a student hangout. However, it is not restricted to students and there is plenty of seating. I am told that the pastries are very good, but I try to avoid them.

Nice selection of gluten free items. I'm not very impressed with how expensive one cupcake costs.....can you believe almost $5? I know it's more expensive to make but not much more expensive. Disappointing.

Fresh baked goods that also cater to vegan and gluten free diets. Also good coffees and breakfast sandwiches. Perfect place to get a cappuccino and read the paper, or catch up with friends. Warning can be pricey.

We love to walk here from our house. They have excellent options. Although I'm not vegan, their Vegan Whoopie Pie is the bomb! I am also partial to their strawberry whipped cream cake! It literally melts in your mouth. The kicker is their espressos and cappuccinos. I'm a bit of a coffee snob, and they do it right, everytime!

The staff at the bean counter were both very pleasant when I went here. I met friends there and we were able to find a table, but there is not a lot of seating, aprox enough for 20 people. So you may need to wait for a table if you plan to meet there. Coffee's were very good and they... More
