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.

We were traveling across Vermont and wanted a healthy sandwich for lunch. We found Moon Dog cafe right on Route 11. We went in and placed our order for a Vegetarian wrap. It had guacamole, cream cheese, lettuces, tomatoes etc in a whole wheat wrap. We sat outside and they brought out our sandwich. It was delicious. Hit the spot.... More

Been meaning to stop there for years . . . right out of 1968 (full disclosure . . . my era). Had no idea what to expect, had the veg wrap (garlic cream cheese, tomato, avocado, cucumber (?), greens). Delicious. Didn't know it was exactly what I wanted when I came in! Very friendly waitress, great blueberry muffins (I took... More

I loved this place. It's a neat sort of hippy kind of place. The coffee was hot and good, the gluten free macaroon was moist and delicious and the service was super friendly. I enjoyed talking with the two women there and looking around the shop. A must visit place!!

Organic food, hippie/yoga atmosphere, and coffee. The service was slow and a bit indifferent and I'm usually skeptical of places that don't serve soda, but we had fun and our hummus sandwiches were good. Our daughter had the PB&J but it was a bit too messy for a kid since it was the gooey fresh peanut butter. Also, the high... More

We recently spent the weekend in Vermont. On Saturday, we found Moon Dog Cafe and stopped by for coffee. My husband had a regular coffee and I had a decaf maple latte. We split a cherry almond muffin. All were extremely yummy! The place is comfortable and the service very friendly. We enjoyed it so much that we went out... More

Recently, my husband and I stayed somewhere that was located considerably close to Moon Dog Cafe. I only wish we'd have found it on day one. We are very much into our own local food scene back home in RI and make an effort to source the best the best that we can when it comes to food. Baked goods... More

We go to Manchester about once a year and always make it a point to drive to Chester and have lunch at the Moon Dog Cafe at least once during our trip. The food (and drink) is always fantastic and comes with great service!

Yes, back at The Moon Dog Cafe and my number1 choice when I visit The States. Good to meet up with Jacki and Sue( always a friendly welcome). Went for the excellent scrambled eggs with pepper and challah bread(honey sweetener) with side plate of home fries. Back again Thursday and pick up my favourite - lemon chicken soup. The place,...
