Well, I absolutely love Fuel! I go here almost every day and get a mocha latte (my personal favorite), its not too sweet and not too bitter. Also their McGuido sandwich is incredible, always ask for sourdough bread with bacon and avocado it really adds to the flavor. The people are always friendly! They also have wonderful pastries and the... More

A friendly homey place for good coffee. I haven't yet tried the food but they have snacks and light meals. Ask for the wifi password.

I used to come here frequently when I lived in Great Barrington, and still visit when I am in town. Great place to grab coffee a (regular or gluten free) pastry and sit and journal a bit. They feature local artists so the walls are covered with interesting art :)

I spent a few days in the Bershires working on a photography project. I looked up Fuel in Great Barrington and saw that it got great reviews so I decided to stop in on a cool, rainy weekday (October 27th). The coffee shop has a warm and cozy progressive vibe and seemed the ideal place to get out of the... More

Starbuck's cannot hold a candle to this little, informal, delightful and artsy coffee shop. It's exactly what you always hope to find. It's all about the coffee, but they also have nice pastries, free wifi, colorful clientele, and friendly staff. Go here, Go back. Tip them. Let's keep this place prosperous and open.

A must stop in downtown G.B. Locals meet to look at art , discuss politics and get some java/food. The owners the Curletti's are the best.

In a town without Starbucks, this is the place. Brought our British friends here who decided, after sipping java here, that Great Barrington is a hippie town. It is, and we like it that way.

This is my home-base of coffee. I've long since moved away from my hometown of GB and I still proudly wear my Fuel shirt everywhere! Perfect environment to meet friends or do homework and the staff is always friendly. Lots of food choices (bonus: gluten-free options!) and yummy coffee. Try the wired monkey!

Nice people working there and friendly line for coffee but the beverages are just so so and the place is a little grubby. Always regulars in the seats, best to take outside.
