Our coffee, Gracenote Coffee, is roasted locally in Berlin, MA, and our breakfast, lunch, and special event menus feature local ingredients prepared fresh in-house. You can find our menus and more information on our Café page.

The General Store’s Craft Beer and Wine selection is unrivaled for value. It is our mission to select small, grower producer wines from around the world, wines that offer the greatest quality for the least cost. Our wide selection of craft beers focuses on local Massachusetts breweries that produce some of the best lagers and ales found anywhere.

We’re Also A Bike Shop,

The Harvard General Store has recently installed a full-service bike shop, right here below the store. CK Bikes, named for its founder Craig Kilmer, offers decades of repair expertise, sells both new as well as used bikes, and offers repairs.  Visit Craig’s website here for more information.
