It is a small tiny place, but if you get here in time and get a spot, you'll have good coffee and a place to study

Maybe it was the luck of the draw, but on my last visit I was served what will rank as the best latte I have had, anywhere. The quality of the accompanying food is first-rate as well.

Willoughby's has been a staple in my morning coffee routine for years. They have a diverse assortment of fair trade coffees at a reasonable price. This is undoubtedly the place to go if you prefer STRONG coffee - not that watered down diluted ferrywinkle stuff most other places serve. The only complaint I have ever heard suggests the coffee is too strong.The staff are friendly and courteous and most of the patrons are working professionals instead of pretentious beatniks commonly found at coffee shops. Although I am not a fan of tea, my friends and colleagues seem impressed with their selection. The locations in New Haven get their pastries from Judy's - which is an awesome bakery. All in all, it's a great place

Its coffee but its a pump-it-yourself operation so don't go looking for latte art.

We recognize this is an old review but we wanted to correct the above statement. We are not a pump-it-yourself operation nor have we ever been. We were the first specialty coffee roaster (and in store roaster) in New Haven as well as in the states of Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island. We appreciate the opportunity to respond to this review and thank you for visiting the Willoughby's Coffee & Tea page.
