“Great place to meet people or take a break in Williamstown”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Tunnel City is a great place to meet friends, have a business meeting, or sit alone and read the paper over a great cup of coffee. They roast their own coffee, make their own muffins and quiches, and make their own delicious pastries and cakes. There is indoor and outdoor seating and the parking lot is just across the street. This is the place for locals to meet and out of town visitors become regulars during their stays in town.

“Recently removed electrical outlet access to most areas.”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

I have been at this location before. As a traveling parent, I really was unhappy with the recent decision by coffee shop to cover 75% percent of their outlets. There are four sections in this coffee shop, only one small section has outlets available to customers. My cell phone was battery was low. I ordered my coffee and moved to another location down the street to have lunch and plug-in. I would have had stayed longer and perhaps had lunch if I felt welcomed. I have pictures of empty tables, perhaps a couple of townies catching up. A lot less students and parent than before. Coffee average, service just okay. This is the only espresso shop in town I wish it was more welcoming.

Reviewed 19 April 2014

The desserts are amazing! Excellent ginger molasses cookie. Busy place and hard to find a seat at times.

“The Heart of a College Town is the Local Coffee Shop”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Tunnel City is one of the busiest places you can be, any morning, in WIlliamstown. That long line should not worry you though - they are used to it and service is FAST and FRIENDLY. The coffee is great and they've recently moved things around a little - giving them a whole island in the center from which they prepare the espresso type beverages. The baked goods are tasty, the limited lunch items good - it's the sort of place you can start out with coffee, slide into a capuccino and pastry, and then eventually a piece of quiche and a brewed iced tea... and before you know it the morning is gone and you've just simply enjoyed yourself. It's a bustling place with both students and faculty from Williams College as well as locals and tourists. Often there is art being exhibited on the walls - there are some fine local artists showcased here.
