They roast their own coffee and get deliveries every day. Every employee knows their coffee, and can help you when you get to the bean wall. I have been a occasional regular for 16 years, still the best coffee retailers around.

Willoughby's is a great little coffee shop with two locations that I am aware of in New Haven. Their coffee is great and a variety of blends. Their pastries just add to the experience. Stop in and give it a try. You won't be disappointed!
