The food and choices are wonderful. My friends, wife and I have been here many times in the past and were enjoying ourselves on the excellent oversized meals. Even though we were stuffed, we were looking forward (especially me) to sharing one of their blueberry muffins. However, it was not good. It... read more

We stopped here for a break during a long bicycle tour. We helped ourselves to the self serve coffee and baked goods. I had a huge slice of chocolate banana bread that was unbelievably delicious. There are tables everywhere, including outdoors, and interesting things to look at. They sell salads and sandwiches as well as ice cream, smoothies and other... More

Made-on-site goodies, local products, charming, quirky, delightful. Good espresso. A great place to browse amid hand-made items or enjoy a java watching life on the Chester commons

We are from the Boston area and stop by the Moon Dog Cafe every time we are in the area (3 times in the past year!). The service is amazing and the food is so fresh with many creative dishes and snacks to choose from. It is a unique spot that clearly values local and sustainable food and community. The... More

My wife and I had just arrived in Chester, VT for a 2 day visit of the area. Across the street from our Bed and Breakfast was the Moon Dog Cafe. We decided to give it a try. We were not ready for a meal but they had ice cream available. We ordered two scoops of the local ice cream... More

Swung by for a breakfast with the kids on the way through Chester. This place is right on the main drag - great location. We had an assortment of baked goods and some granola/yogurt. All of the food was good and the portions were large. I particularly liked the coffee cake. I'd give the place 5 stars except that the... More

Whenever I am in the area I stop. Love the curried chicken salad sandwich, other people i have gone with have tried other things and all have said were delicious but I love the chicken salad that also has grapes and walnuts! Cookies are great too!

One of our favorite places in Vermont! Top-quality menu that's the best of all worlds: local, organic, healthy, incredibly delicious and creative gourmet dishes, tremendously friendly & welcoming folks who work there -- and all of it at reasonable prices! They are also wonderfully accomodating and understanding about food allergies and do all they can to help. Truly a gem... More

Wonderful sandwiches, soups from scratch, salads and fantastic smoothies. Accommodating folks who will modify a menu item to see to your needs. Great service!
