Gastro-pub? Neighborhood hangout? Whatever, busy but inviting space, long bar, great selection of beer and cider, and outstanding food from a schnitzel sandwich (with excellent fried) to a perfectly prepared steak. Be warned, the ice cream sandwich between two home made chocolate chip cookies is a meal in itself. Staff are all great too.

For coffe aficionados, you can find all your fancy drips and double espressos here, and sit at an industrial-style stool, prepare for your meeting or catch up on the news on your iPad. Understated fashionable. We didn't try the baked goods, but they looked appetizing.

The Hub

Reviewed By S N

The place was highly recommended by our hotel. I wish we had gone with our trip advisor list. The cod was barely done and cooled quickly. The vegetable medley was bland and watery which ran into the fish and sweet potato tater tots. The other dish was 4pc fried chicken that was pretty good and the Brussels spouts that were cold and bland. We brought this to our waitress and they were replaced by a serving of homemade mac n cheese. Service was not the best as We had to ask for help to find our waitress for the check after waiting for about ten minutes.

Traditional Italian fare with an American touch. Located in the newly renovated Mulcare Block of North Adams directly across the street from Mass MoCA and just 7 minutes from Williamstown. Scratch made cuisine prepared by Chef/Owner as well as newly designed bar and lounge featuring craft cocktails.

The atmosphere was warm and welcoming at this local Italian restaurant.
We started off with a couple of cocktails, both of which were very good - Lemon Basil Blossom and Carl's Margarita ... if you like Cinnamon, go for this innovitive margarita made with house-infused cinnamon tequila, apple cider, and a cinnamon sugar rim ... cinnamon heaven!!!!
We had their Veal Chop, a generous portion, cooked pink as we requested, which came with a salad starter.
The atmosphere was buzzing, and the restaurant full even though it was mid-week - always a good sign.
The staff were attentive and friendly, but to be honest the bar staff won them my 4 'stars' with their cocktails, rather than the chefs for the food.

Went for dinner on an overnight at the Porches and it was the perfect spot. We could walk from the hotel. The restaurant was not crowded so we had excellent service. THe paella was more than ample, i didn't need an appetizer and my husbands dish was terrific too. Nice selection of wines and desserts. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a more upscale meal when visiting MassMOCA> the decor is not fancy so it's dressy casual

Reviewed By KB1CJT - North Adams, Massachusetts

It's a GREAT place to eat!!!!!!!!!! You definitely get a bang for your buck at this place. If you leave hungry then it's because you didn't order enough. Only draw back is it's a tiny place with very limited seating so you have to get lucky and hope they aren't busy if you want to dine in.

Lickety Split at Mass MoCA

Reviewed By MariaTer. - NYC

Our friend who lives in Williamstown told us not to miss this place, and we took his advice. It's a hole in the wall--seating available only on benches outdoors--but their homemade ice cream in interesting but not bizarre flavors was fabulous. We shared the medium-size espresso with chocolate chips ice cream, which was plenty for two people. Luscious and creamy!

Home style cooking and baking in a cosmopolitan setting. Serving sides of jazz, Berkshire street life and light cafe fare.

Reviewed By Amy B - San Diego, California

We got very good coffee here on a recent trip to North Adams. I had the frittata for breakfast and it was okay. I think the pastries are better but I wanted something healthier. The place was packed so I think it's a very popular spot with the locals and the coffee was definitely worth it.
