Williamstown Coffee and Morning Bite, Stick to Spring Street

Fortuna | Jun 9, 2002 10:51 AM

Depending on how you wake up in the morning, you may not be in the mood when the owner at Five Corners puts aside the last scone for the woman behind you in line dressed in the linen burqa favored by dowdy Williamstown women. And when, while you pay for your coffee, the winner of the last scone boorishly compliments the lady of the place on her subtle move, your coffee cup may resist the temptation to swing upwards and forward, spilling the black stuff on the ladies because, after all, there are other options 5 minutes away. The coffee shop on Spring Street in Williamstown now offers nice pastries in addition to their selection of coffees, the usual lattes etc., muffins (which are light and delicious with a nice bit of crusty top). Clarksburg Bakery up the street has very good bread but watch for freshness in their other baked goods. It's best to ask what was baked that day. They recently added almond toast for $1.25 which was delicious and enough of a bite in the morning for someone who doesn’t require the full works.

There are no good restaurants in Williamstown and the service is indifferent at best with the exception of the owners of the coffee shop on Spring Street. Service workers working for Berkshire businesses and at the college get low pay and low or no benefits and many are not enjoying the struggle to get by.
