A beautiful cafe with a great selection of loose-leaf teas and four really impressive rosemary plants.

Been there several times for business meetings or just to meet with friends and EVERY TIME the staff was delightful. The coffee is great and the sweets... you need to have someone to hold you back, for real. Love the place!

You order and pay at a counter, then they either deliver it to your table or you pick it up. They don't have a big menu; just a couple of pasta salads (cold) and sandwiches are their specialties, but they need to switch them up once in awhile.. Nice place to go for coffee and dessert. Doesn't seat a large... More

This is a cozy coffee/ lunch cafe with homemade delicacies and the most delicious desserts. We had lunch two days on our 3 day stay in Chatham and only wished we had room for the individual lemon meringues after our devious chicken sandwich.

I'm glad that someone posted the William Street Cafe sign here - I almost walked into the Chilled Cork at the corner instead... On William Street, the Cafe sign indicates the entrance to this cafe. As someone else indicated there is no table service - just go up to the counter at the back to order. I ordered a hummus... More

Very cozy café to stay for a small break. Very nice staff!!! The prices were okay, not too expensive, and the food and drinks tasted good. The atmosphere was nice, very calm and quiet. I felt comfortable :). It didn’t take my breath away, but if I was near the café, I would definitely visit it again...

Coffee Culture The William St Cafe was quite wonderful. During the time that my classmates and I shared at that exquisite place, i enjoyed an iced coffee, coffee, and a soda. I learned quite quickly that service there was practically unbeatable, and the social opportunities grew with every step deeper into the cafe. The tastes were so vibrant, and every... More

When I went to the William street Cafe it is a quick serving independent coffee shop. When I went there, the diner felt very tidy and organized. The workers there were very kind and helpful to the customers. When I was there, I ordered a hot chocolate. I found it tasted good and I enjoyed it when I was drinking... More
