Esselon Café

99 Russell St. (Rte. 9)
Hadley, MA
(413) 585-1515

Esselon, which celebrates its fifth anniversary this summer, has become a favorite Valley destination thanks to its coffees—roasted twice a week on the premises—and teas, a menu filled with fresh, local food (including breakfast options, sandwiches, salads, soups, and vegan and gluten-free items), and what owner Mark Krause calls its "superior ambience." As the weather warms up, that includes an outdoor seating area planted with 2,300 spring flowers.
