495, Worcester and north--orchards and lunch close to the highway?

We're going to be driving from NY to Maine a lot in the coming years (our daughter just started college at Bates). I posted some of our Maine finds on the Northern NE board but wanted to check in about this stretch of the drive, too.

This time we stopped at Carlson Orchards in Harvard. www.carlsonorchards.com Nice people and delicious fresh Paula Red apples. We're wondering about all the other orchards in the area. Do any also serve coffee and maybe sandwiches or muffins?

Also, Dunkin Donuts proliferate along the road, but are there any local coffee houses I should know about, or even Starbucks, which we prefer to DD?

We've gotten off at random exits and poked around for some good local places but haven't found much so far. Any tips? And I'll keep posting in the coming months. Thanks.
