Don’t take our word for it, see what our customers are saying:

Every cup is wonderful!

I’ve been a customer at Cafe Monte Alto for a long time, back to when I taught at Plymouth State and lived in nearby Holderness. Now, having moved from wonderful New Hampshire back to Massachusetts, I’m a mail-order customer. And a constant one. When I go to my vacation home in Florida, I order Monte Alto Peruvian Dark Roast. A few years ago I was fortunate to spend a month in rural France, writing my latest novel, and took a pound of Monte Alto in my suitcase. Boy, did it smell good when I opened it! Every cup tastes and smells wonderful, and it is consistent in every respects, attesting to the quality roasting process. I just ordered four pounds of my beloved Peruvian Dark Roast and a pound of Caracolillo. My gratitude is overflowing for you, Monte Alto!”

Just Perfect!

The coffee is amazing, the ambiance perfect for this little town, New England flare but very, very friendly. Have great Breakfast sandwiches too. My favorite is the Latte, my kids love the Chai. you can also by to go and coffee beans to take home.”

Often imitated but never duplicated!

I first came to Plymouth 3 years ago and stopped at Monte Alto for an iced vanilla chai… Since that moment, I have searched the US for a similar Chai, and could never find one as authentic, delicious or pleasing!  ~ DK J.

The Real Deal!

Great coffee served by nice folks. Not a chain! Owned and operated by a family that’s been in the roasting business for generations.”

Great Place!

I had iced mint tea, it was awesome. My kids had iced hot chocolate… never heard of that before, but I tried one add it was great. Really friendly people, just a great place to stop in when you are in Plymouth.”
