Popped in with the family for a quick bite on way back home from Stowe. I got an excellent cup of hazelnut joe, nice being able to self serve for top off. Son's chili was very good, super hearty. Daughter loved her thick, fresh mango smoothie. Also grabbed some bagels which were generously... read more

I must admit up front we did not eat here. We tried. The list of food looked very appealing - to an adult. We were there at noon on a Friday and many people were in line. Menu reminded me of a McAlister Deli. But nowhere could I find a list of kid-friendly food. I asked for a kid's menu... More

Stopped here for lunch. I got a BLT on sour dough. All fresh ingredients and it was delicious. I am posting below a picture of my sandwich.

Friendliness and service is where the Works succeeds. The coffee is great, the food is adequate and very quickly prepared. The owner and staff are community minded and very accommodating ... they even stay open an hour or so extra for my organization's monthly or bi-monthly meeting, without charging extra! They have one of the best store fronts along Main... More

I love The Works. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Food quality is superb and always freshly made. Prices are reasonable. Free Wifi is also available and is a good place if you want a coffee while working online. My only wish is that they would change their menu. I frequent The Works regularly and I tend to eat the same... More
