I was pleased to see that there wasn't a big coffee chain in the center of Bennington, but happy to find this cafe. I didn't get to eat their food, but all the baked goods looked very nice and home made. Coffee was good. I really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere.

When we visit Bennington three times a year, our headquarters are always South Street Café. On Sunday, after church, be sure to stop in for the Jazz Trio. You will be entertained for over an hour by the best calm music you wanted to hear over great coffee. The Open Mike nights on Tuesdays are not to be missed. The... More

This coffee shop has sandwiches and a wide variety of coffees, baked goods and snacks. There is casual seating in the shop, including sofas, lounge chairs, and frequently lots of local artists's work hanging on the walls. Reading materials provided. WiFi available. There is a jazz session on Sundays, and on Tuesdays, an open mike. This is an interesting hangout... More

This was highly recommended by some locals but I thought it was just average. The blueberry muffin was very good, the whoopee pie was average (if not a bit dry). The coffee was average at best. There was a decent crowd when we came in at 2pm on a Friday. We ended up sitting on the couch which was not... More

Stopped in en route to the mountains for skiing to grab a latte and snack. Food and drink great, atmosphere so so. Good spot to stop passing through to enjoy a little treat. Wouldn't want to spend the afternoon hanging out there. Eclectic mix of people. Not my crowd.

There was a time when being ethical about the environment and food was the preserve of hippies. This cafe reminded me of those days when hippy cafes were set up and run by co-ops and at a minimal cost. We just had morning coffee and cake but it was all very pleasant.

We stopped in for a quick bite after finding Bennington Station closed. Apparently, they are still on summer hours in late October, so they don't open until 4PM. Go figure. South Street Cafe is a locally operated coffee shop that has a limited sandwich/pastry menu. The pros: friendly staff, good food and coffee....Average prices and adequate portions. There is a...

Yesterday we were in Bennington for few hours and looked for nice place for coffee and some food. We like to sit in places that have nice atmosphere, kind service and good food for good prices. We found all these in South Street Cafe. It looks like a place for everybody- youngs and elders. My boyfriend ate bagel and drank... More
