Mocha Alley Cafe: Mocha Alley Cafe
This cafe is a nice little place to get a cup of coffee (or tea, expresso, chai) and a decadent dessert. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. Everyone is welcome from the hip young crowd to the older generation. Even me, the tired housewife and mom who needs to get out!
Also served are a wide assortment of frozen drinks and I spotted bagels on the counter along with biscotti and other yummies.
What I really like about the Mocha Alley Cafe is you don't feel like you are being rushed out the door. You are welcome to sit and chat for a while.
Oh, and by the way... if Lance tells you he made the desserts, don't believe him, he's just trying to pick you up! He buys them from a pastry shop in the north end of Boston.
Favorite Dish: Chai & cake. Very Yummy!

Fly! Fitchburg has it's own municipal airport which is not near anywhere you want to be. Consider taking a taxi to your next destination.
You will want to grab a taxi from the airport or get a friend to pick you up.
MART. The Montachusett Area...
MART. The Montachusett Area Regional Transportation system. Essentially, a bus line that serves Gardner, Leominster, and Fitchburg. I haven't had the thrill as I own a car...
Not a bad way to travel. MART has reasonable rates and goes pretty much anyway you would need to go.

Fitchburg Off The Beaten Path
The Massachusetts Audubon Society has a sanctuary in Fitchburg, on Ashburnham Hill Road called Flat Rock. It is a wonderful hike up the hill, across a brook, through the woodland, and at some point you reach the remarkable natural paving. Portions of the trail are smooth and level rock. This shows what the northern half of Fitchburg is like - mostly unspoiled.
Notown Resevoir Hike
This lovely 2 mile walk can only be reached from the East bound side of Rt. 2. It is a terrific walk in the woods which takes you along a well laid path. The walk brings you down the hill, and to the shore of the resevoir. The woods are filled with abandoned rock walls and foundations. Back in the 1800's there was a settlement here. They had no local governemnt, and didn't pay taxes. They wanted to join one of the other towns in the area, but were denied. Hence, the village was called Notown.
This walk is nice because unless you know it's there, you only see the water from the highway. This walk brings it up close and personal.Related to:
