This is a casual cafe where you can sit for hours, but the decor is nice... good lighting, nice tables etc. It's a unique place because of the quality and also the fact that they are laid back about the format of the place. You order at the counter, they bring it to your table, you can bus your own table if you want to ... or not... they'll periodically come by and clear stuff.

More importantly: BEST VEGAN BREKKIE EVER. It is exactly what a vegan breakfast could and should be, and at esselon, it IS! This dish consists of healthy amounts of each: scrambled tofu, fried/marinated mushrooms, sauteed spinach, roasted half of tomato, bunch of slices of avacado, small green salad with olive oil and cucumbers, sourdough bread, and vegan sausage if you ask for it. OMG sooooo much goodness in one place, your plate, and your tummy.

They also have a great vegan burger and vegan chili burrito. So many times I just go for the coffee and sit and work, so I get the vegan soup of the day (usually lentil) with bread. Everything is quality at esselon.

Almost forgot, their outside summer seating is the best in amherst/hadley area ... so lovely! You have the option of the porch or also out **among the trees and garden** !! So many days I have sat out there gazing at the flowers, sipping a drink and writing.

Pros: free parking, next to 91 exit, sit all day, it's OK
Cons: crowded parking, sundays are insane, too popular

Good vegan brunch-ish options

Esselon offers a vegan Benedict and a breakfast scramble that look like small portions but are satisfying. Soups are sometimes vegan, and salad options are available. Staff are always knowledgeable about the vegan options, and baked goods and desserts are sometimes offered. I agree with the previous posting that the coffee is superb, and in addition the tea menu is extensive. This is a great destination for groups of vegans and non-vegans, as omnivores love the menu. The atmosphere is fun, open, and sometimes loud as it is a popular, bustling cafe. Outdoor and semi-outdoor seating is available.

Pros: Fun atmosphere, Excellent coffee, Always vegan options available
Cons: Can be pricey, Vegan options are not always extensive, Can be very crowded

Great coffee

Posted on 05 / 08 / 2012

The best soy lattes around. Super friendly staff. Vegan sausage and tofu scramble, as well as vegan-GF cupcakes from Woodstar cafe in Noho. Sort of pricey, but nothing out of the ordinary for the area. The atmosphere is nice, can feel crowded. The ceilings are beautiful! Outside seating available and really nice in spring/summer.

Pros: ambiance , Coffee is amazing, Friendly staff
Cons: $$
