Mocha Mott’s

When I was in Martha’s Vineyard, I was taken by all of the quaintness of shops and stores, and especially the Gingerbread Houses. But after all the strolling in the crisp weather, you need a warm cup of something. So, I went to Mocha Mott’s in Oak Bluffs.

This little coffee shop carries all organic and fair trade coffee, along with homemade baked goods and some light, cafe foods for breakfast and lunch. Positivity, good vibes, and chill tunes are what they like the cafe to be fueled by, while fueling you with some caffeine.

I ordered a Cappuccino, complete with their signature logo-ed cup. Nice, rich espresso, topped with some frothy foam. Win. Win.

Name: Mocha Mott’s
Location: 10 Circuit Avenue, Oak Bluffs, MA
The Long and Short: Would I go back? For sure. Now, I’m not in Martha’s Vineyard often, at all, but, if I’m back, I’ll certainly pop by for another coffee, and the next time, a baked good treat.
Would I recommend it? Yes, a nice spot to sit a relax for a minute to enjoy your drink and snack, or, pick up a quality drink to go.

When it comes to coffee, we’ve been conditioned into a culture of absurd sounding beverage combinations with cups that often have a name written on them that’s not even close to our own. “Kevin”? No, my name’s Katherine, thanks. Well, if good coffee is what you’re after, you can head to Think Coffee in one of their five NYC locations. I visited the one in Union Square.

Think is dedicating their practice to fairness in the coffee trade, from farmer to customer, and also run their own Farm and Social Projects. They also donate 10% of their profits to local non-profits, taking care of low-income families, including daycare, early childhood education and programs for inner-city youth, teens and seniors. I mean, how amazing is that? Their wallpaper isn’t too shabby either (above).

If you need a bite to go along with your cup, they offer a breakfast menu until 11am, and lots of sandwiches and baked goods throughout the day.

I grabbed a Peanut Butter Cookie, which comes in from a local bakery. It was big, crispy, crunchy, peanut-buttery goodness.

And then, of course, I got a coffee, a Cappuccino. The coffee was rich and smooth and served up with creamy, foamed milk.
