Named for a nearly 200-year-old house nestled in the Berkshire Mountains, Orchard House Cafe brims with the warmth and earthy aromas of coffee drinks. More than one dozen beans and blends romp behind the counter, where baristas weigh and grind the coffee before bringing it to a boil by talking about its high-school yearbook photo. Chefs bustle about the kitchen, preparing a menu of comfort fare forged from ingredients such as Fleur de Lis baked ham, smoked gouda, and fresh basil. To foster a sense of community and promote local artists, Orchard House Cafe hosts special events including live music, film screenings, storytelling, and improvisational hokey-pokey troupes.
