As a college student with a lot of work, Rao's provides a great atmosphere with great coffee every time. Their Wi-Fi is always super fast and they always have a nice variety of music playing in the background. Definitely coming back next year!

“great coffee and nice people”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Distinctively different coffee with a refreshing crisp taste. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly folks that will share a table with you if it's packed on the weekend.

“Great place to study and people watch”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

This is a great place to study and hang out with friends. I went to college in the area, so I admit part of my bias towards this place is the memories I've created there and the nostalgia I feel for Western MA. That said, I still think, objectively, it's a great coffee shop!
