Got a breakfast burrito to go. I was a little picky and wanted to mix up the contents a bit. That wasn't well received and it took more than 20 minutes to get my food. The to-go packaging leaked all over my coat and car. The burrito was pretty tasty, but the mess and wait weren't worth it.

We drove by this spot on the way across Vermont and stopped in on a whim. Wanting a real Vermont breakfast mu wife and I split an order of Waffles. WOW! They were great and covered with local maple syrup. Take the time to visit Moon Dog if you are anywhere close.

I have been here several times!!! The food is always incredible and the menu is always changing with whatever is offered locally. There is a variety of sweet treats, breakfast and lunch options, teas and coffees available. There are also a variety of items for sale such as jewelry, skirts, aprons, soaps and lotions, locally produced food products and so... More

I found this little spot on Trip Advisor and we couldn't have been happier. I am now gluten free and eating out can be challenging. My husband and I stopped in for lunch before we went on the Green Mountain Flyer Train ride. We shared a Ham, Apple and Cheddar sandwich on gluten free bread. What a treat. We also... More

Hippy crunchy granola kinda place with character and style and great food great coffee and awesome service. Have the sampler platter and make sure that the curry chicken salad and stuffed portabella mushrooms are on it...you will be amazed at the quality of foos. After lunch have them whip up an espresso based drink. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

I live but 25 minutes away in NH, and had not visited for a number of years - those visits were with my late-wife and late-neighbor. Loved it then, and when asked today how my sandwich was I replied, "it was phenomenal !!" Often I am out and about in Vermont touring in one of my old sports cars, and... More

The blueberry pie is to write home about. Other pastries are also excellent. Sandwiches and soup are very good. I had a ham and bean soup that was chock full of vegetables and excellent. The regular coffee was not great but if I went a third time, I would order an espresso drink. Service during the week is better than... More

In reading other reviews, I see that I am out of step. But I must express my experience. Four of us had lunch this week. Good food. Lots of insects flying about. Waiter sweating profusely as he served us. I'm easy on these establishments, but I did not have a good feel about hygiene...and animal life.
