On a lovely fall day we stopped for coffee and cake at the Woodstar Cafe in Northampton MA. They have a few seats outside which allowed us to enjoy a snack with Maggie, my mom’s Jack Russell.
We had a chocolate Guinness cupcake that sounded like an interesting combination and although the flavor was good, we thought that the texture was a little dry.
The pumpkin cake on the other hand, was outstanding and a real fall treat. It was moist and succulent and had a great balance of spices that accented the pumpkin flavor without overpowering it.
The Woodstar Cafe is located at 60 Masonic Street in Northampton MA.
