Food Scene
Best local coffee shop, I have been going here since I was a little girl. The hot mocha is amazing and the granola bars are made on site. If you are looking for something without caffeine, the angry cow (steamed milk) with vanilla flavoring is another of my favorites!

Locally owned restaurant that has been a staple of Amherst since 1977. You MUST try the popover with apple butter. My other favorite dish served here is the curry chicken salad (yum!). Wonderful atmosphere, great for date night, family dinners, or just grabbing a bite and a beer with a friend.
