Got coffee?

By Skye Stewart ‘17

Most college students would agree that their best friends are coffee, coffee, and more coffee. There is never a day when the two are far apart. A short walk or drive leads to a few quaint little cafés and coffee shops located in Andover and North Andover. Maybe some places for homework time or just for a meet-up with friends, these three cafés are calling your name.


Good Day Café   

With maple bacon donut muffins, weekend brunch featuring Belgian waffles, and  flavor shots for coffee drinks that include toasted marshmallow and salted caramel, Good Day Café will more than likely make your day. The café even has a list of soups and sandwiches for lunch dates. This is the perfect place for busy homework days or if you are just looking for a quiet place to take a break.

Mr. Gelato Café

Calling all crepe lovers! This place is for you. Lunch crepes, dessert crepes (featuring Nutella), you name it, you can get it. If crepes are not your favorite, settle for a sorbet smoothie, an Italian Panini, or pick from 24 different flavors of gelato goodness. Located in the courtyard, this European café is one of your best bets for grabbing lunch (or dessert) while exploring Main Street.
