Botanica coffee from Assembly Coffee Roasters in Pittsfield, MA.
Café culture in Great Barrington continues to thrive with the presence of Botanica, a café/plant shop combo owned by Carla Blades, a well-known local baker, and esigner Adam Medina. In addition to pour-overs (made with Assembly Coffee Roasters in Pittsfield), the beverage menu includes the usual suspects — espresso, cappuccino, latte, Americano, flat white. Everything on the one-page menu is familiar, yet foreign within the context of the Berkshire victual culture. Steel cut oats served with rock salt and marmalade, or with seared pears and almonds ($9), baked eggs with bacon, leeks and fresh ricotta (served in a small skillet, $13), and egg tacos with a healthy hit of chorizo and lime sour cream ($11) all round out a simple, yet flavorful breakfast menu. Salads highlighting seasonal offerings — pears, oranges, olives, lavash crisps — give way to flavorful mains and soups. Read the full review here.
