“This is a super freaking cute place, with a cool menu and vibe. A little hot on the wallet, though, if you’re having dinner. Coco is only open from weds-sun, but I have heard great things about the buttermilk fried chicken (I’m a pescatarian). I was impressed with their menu, and they definitely have some of the most skilled mixologists behind the bar. Great ambience, and pretty accommodating of food allergies (if you ask nicely). The cellar bar can be a little musty at times, but has a great beer list, albeit a slightly hipster/too-cool feel. ”

“This is the best espresso you’ll find in Easthampton! The baked goods and breakfast sandwiches are decadent—treat yourself! The “compost” cookie is a favorite of mine, and the egg and cheese breakfast sandwich with jalapeño. Yum!”

“Sylvester’s is the go-to place for weekday breakfast or weekend brunch (be prepared to wait in line on weekends). In addition to the omelets, eggs, and pancakes, we enjoy their huevos rancheros. They make their own breads here.”

“Amanouz is the place to try if you’re in the mood for something a little different. It’s a Moroccan/Mediterranean place where you order at the counter and they deliver the food to your table. We like the Mediterranean eggs and the tagines. We also like to go here for an informal dinner; the food is tasty, very reasonably priced, and they even offer wine.”
