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

We liked the comfy feel of this place, Locals obviously hang out with their laptops as we were the only customers not using them but talking to each other. Some live music was advertised.

It's late afternoon now and I keep thinking of the rare delight I had this morning biting into South Street Cafe's fresh, crusty cinnamon roll!

My wife and I found this place a few years ago and besides good coffee she's always enjoyed the lemon squares and always compares other lemon squares to this place. They have hot coffee and iced coffee but sadly no frozen drinks. Have never had a meal here so can't comment how their food is.

Very much a student coffee shop, with people working on their laptops on battered sofas, or tables and chairs which have seen better days. The staff are friendly, the coffee was good and they have live music (not all the time). Full of atmosphere.

We love the vibe in the South Street Cafe. It's absolutely centrally located, large enough to hold plenty of people, and always has has relaxed, comfortable feel. The coffee is great, too. We got to participate in their Tuesday night open mic night and were surprised and pleased to get a warm reception - we are flamenco musicians and find... More

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.
