HUDSON — If you love a good cup of joe, you may already be supporting this locally owned, mom-and-pop — or mom-and-daughter, to be more accurate — coffee shop in Hudson. But because I don’t drink coffee, Buck’s Cup of Joe had never really registered on my radar.

Three visits in and I can’t stop singing the praises of this little foodie haven to everyone I encounter.
