My son and I were visiting colleges in the Northeast, and just for fun sharing notes about the quality of the coffee shops we found near the campuses. We ended going back to Tunnel City Coffee several times. The coffee was excellent, the ambiance in the place just what we wanted.
After more than a half dozen campus samplings in the past week or so, no coffee shop stands out as better than this one.

This cafe is a community hub in downtown Williamstown. The high-quality coffee and amount of space to sit and linger are what keep me coming back. I am particular about my coffee, and have never been disappointed. The prices for specialty drinks are a bit steep, so I just stick to the standard fare.

I'd like to see the baked goods section improved. There always seem to be cakes, but then rarely croissants or danishes or bagels. Availability seems to be hit or miss. Also, the bakery counter rarely seems to have a dedicated server and one has to always wait in the coffee line to order anything from the bakery cases.

This place is always busy and that is a beautiful thing -- a real community hub in town.

Fun spot; lots of coffee and other drink choices and wonderful muffins and quiche! A little slow, but it was busy. They have a system; you just need to be patient. Be sure to make this a stop when you visit Williamstown.

This was once a cool New England coffee shop for doing a little work with a bagel and coffee but they recently covered up their wall outlets so you can't plug in your laptop, and this morning, after I'd driven all the way from Albany, they said they turned off the wifi. :(

During this past summer, we have experienced tremendous traffic in our store and it is a reasonable guess that up to 100 people, at a given moment, are attempting to jump onto our FREE Wifi service. WE HAVE NOT discontinued our Wifi. We have eliminated our outlets in the main portion of our coffeehouse because of several reasons which include walking patterns and people tripping over other peoples cords. Our backroom sitting area(which is actually larger than most coffeehouses) has numerous outlets to plug into.

Increased usage, bad infra structure on Spring Street and the need for us to upgrade our system has been the cause of too many internet crashes.

So Candace and others, we do have Wifi.

Saturday morning Farmer's Market is just across the street in the parking lot. We love to stop here first for a coffee and share one of their wonderful enormous muffins with our coffees. Yes it is crowded but it's the best coffee within many miles so it's worth the bustle that goes with so many happy people beginning their day here. Expect to find some movie and tv people here for the Williamstown Theatre plays sitting next to you.
