Red Barn Coffee

March 9th, 2008 · 3 Comments

I started a new job in Westborough last month and finally have the pleasure of going Route 9 west instead of east in the morning.  I decided to take advantage of this and try Red Barn Coffee.  I’m almost embarrassed to admit I’ve never been to any Red Barn before.  I know it’s been around for a long time but just never went by a location (there are several) when I wanted/needed coffee.
The shop I went to is in Southborough.  Inside is small and cozy with just a few tables, although most people were just getting coffee to go.

There is a decent offering of baked good in the display case.  Normally I’m not a big muffin person but I thought theirs looked interesting (although overwhelming in size) being mostly muffin top.  Once I saw they had pumpkin (my favorite) I knew I was going have to try one.
On the chalkboard of featured coffee flavors was cinnamon, another favorite, so I really didn’t have to spend any time deciding what I wanted.
The dynamic duo:

Both were excellent.  I could only eat half of the muffin but saved the rest for later.  It was perfectly moist and pumkiny, not too sweet and was an awesome compliment to the cinnamon coffee.
Red Barn has a few locations in metrowest and two in Boston.  I just realised there is one in walking distance of my work at the Westborough rotary, so I’m sure I’ll be checking out that one too.
They also have a website @

    Red Barn Coffee is also served, and sold by the pound, at my favorite Framingham coffee house, Espresso Paulo/Annie’s Book Stop in the Nobscot Shopping Center, on Water Street.

    There’s a review here in the January 8 posting of this blog:

    I just stumbled upon your new blog and see you are branching out. I also work at the Westboro rotary and there are a few places that are worth exploring for the site sometime. My favorite is Hisa, the Japanese restaurant next to the Red Barn downtown. The family who runs it is so nice, and lunch specials are a lot of food for less than around $7. There also is the Korean place (I think called Westborough Korean Restaurant). Finally, since downtown already had a Japanese and a Korean restaurant, somebody decided what it really needed was a Japanese-Korean restaurant and Sapporo opened up. I guess they have some offerings not available at the others, and the food is very good as well. Regatta Deli has great sandwiches. (Their special is the Regatta). Have fun exploring. -Dave

    I think Red Barn Coffee rocks! Its friendly atmosphere, incredible blends and authentic enviornment makes this stop a must! You will never go to a Starbucks again.
