The best I’ve ever had: A coffee-lover’s guide to getting caffeinated in New England....
At the quaint Gray’s Daily Grind in Westport, Mass., coffee is upbeat and perky, while the view is a soothing balm. The shop looks out at picturesque Gray’s Mill Pond. You’ll find cyclists breaking for iced coffees, tourists peeping in at the abutting historic Grist Mill. Grab an Adirondack by the pond and Zen out. Late summer afternoons, you might see dozens of big white egrets roosted in trees. Roasts are named after birds you’re apt to see — the Osprey light roast is light and lively; Two Geese is a rich medium with floral notes. Fare includes fresh pastries and doughnuts from two Rhode Island favorites: Olga’s Bakery and Knead Donuts.

"The most quaint and cute coffee shop in the southcoast. Incredibly large menu of awesome coffee drinks."
"Great coffee. Here from Texas but originally L.C. been seeing all the pictures for a while and right near my grandparents old house. Great area to sit at pond and relax with coffee and recall memories"
