Best little coffee shop in Bennington

The best thing about this place is the food. It's reasonably priced, fresh, local, and tasty. The soups are great, the sandwiches good, the pastries are awesome. The coffee is excellent, and roasted in Vermont. The atmosphere is that wonderful funky mix of local art on the walls and old... read more

We went into this cafe on a whim and knowing nothing about it. There was only one person taking orders and preparing the food, so service (he worked hard and did a fine job) was not swift. The two of us each ordered a sandwich, drink, and cookie was the total bill was about $16. The place is worn, but... More

Great little coffee shop with delicious baked goods and sandwiches. The coffee was excellent and the atmosphere relaxing. We sat outside early in the morning and planned our day in Bennington.

Homemade bread, yummy cookies/small pastries, fresh quiches. Food is very good. Tables frequently hard to come by - a lot of college kids on computers. Good coffee, pleasant staff. Clean restrooms. Great local art!

Having being spoilt by living in a small city full of independent coffee shops, this in comparison was somewhat of a disappointment. The coffee shop was recommended to me by a friend but I'm struggling to understand what all the fuss is about. Yes my hot chocolate is nice and thank goodness for soy milk but otherwise, there's not a... More

Wow this place was packed on a frigid day. Although spacious not so many seat. Great espresso bar, had a perfect double shot, no sugar needed. Tasty, homemade carrot ginger soup and a fluffy piece of quick were great on a cold day. Sandwiches are fat, if you like that. Looks like a popular local meeting spot.

My husband and I had turkey sandwiches for lunch. The homemade bread was good, but overall the sandwich was average. I had a whoopie pie which was really good. Not too sweet or too much shortening in the filling. There was live music, games and books to encourage interaction and hanging out.

I really wish I had a place like this near me.. Very cozy, comfortable place to have coffee, snacks, use free wifi and read the paper. I carry very little cash, and did not realize this was a cash only establishment. Luckily, I had just enough on me to pay for my cappuccino. The froth was perfect, almost heaping over... More
