Sometimes you just need a great cup of coffee and something sweet to perk up your afternoon while exploring the Berkshires. We’ve canvassed the region sampling coffee and croissants to find the best places to savor a latte and a sweet or savory treat in the Berkshires. Some of the places we’ve found serve inventive soups and sandwiches, others create authentic French pastry, and still others specialize in homemade pizza and breads. A few even offer evening entertainment and dessert nights. Our breakfasts at the Staveleigh House Bed and Breakfast will prepare you for a great day out and about, but by afternoon you may be looking for a little something to refuel your tank.
