The café was founded by fierce female entrepreneur, single mother of two and a very hard working and eloquently spoken woman, Shelly Williams who barely has a second to give an adequate story detailing the existence of her very quaint and upscale bakery and café located in the heart of historic Lenox, Massachusetts. Her staff can’t say enough great things about her and the food they serve in this stately town.

Close friend and photographer, David Librizzi stops to chat about the establishment and how he met Shelly six years ago when she began her homemade food business in her own kitchen. He is there to run a carload of freshly baked goods and juices to another location for the catering part of her business and he is doing this as a favor on his own time.

“The Berkshires are so freeing and artistic,” Librizzi chuckles and smiles as he looks into the distance, “I find there is a great richness, attitude and quality of people and businesses here in the Berkshires of which Shelly Williams has been a tremendous positive influence. I have known her ever since she started catering almost seven years ago in her own kitchen and it has blossomed into a very impressive organization. Her staff is incredibly talented and she shows great business aptitude”

The bakery and café does a briskly paced breakfast and brunch starting out around 8:00a.m. Two of the staff confirms that they serve almost five hundred people on weekend mornings and they often sell out of their bakery goods every day. The coffee is extremely adequate on any morning and the staff is very polite and patient with every customer and employee. The very popular Sanpellegrino flavored sparkling beverages are available in all the upscale restaurants in The Berkshires, rarely seen in the south or the Midwest but all over Massachusetts and New York State, it seems like a suitable beverage for the clientele.

Haven is located at 8 Franklin Street in Lenox and the website is here. During the week they open at 7:30 a.m. And on weekends they open at 8:00 a.m. Check out all there is to do in Lenox, Massachusetts, and spend some quality time here, it will relax you and enrich your personality and free your creative spirit.
