A New York deli that got time-machined into the 70's in upper Vermont. You want it...they got it better and crunchier.

Located in a strip mall at the gateway to Okemo Ski resort, I can easily imagine this place popular among the ski crowds, packed busy for breakfast and lunch, people coming in and out. Apparently it is more about function and convenience rather than ambiance and enjoyment of being there. They offer from Vermont Coffee Company coffee, a good quality... More

This is a great place for coffee in the morning, or a soup and sandwich for lunch. They never disappoint.

This is really the only sandwich place in Ludlow (other than Subway. Ew). The menu is quite extensive, but most sandwiches I have eaten do not taste fresh. The last time I got a turkey sandwich, they turkey seemed stale. My favorite sandwich was the saga bleu (turkey, honey mustard, blue cheese), but I don't get it anymore because of... More

Upon Suggestion of Michael from the Andrei Rose Inn in Ludlow, Vt we picked up sandwiches for our drive home. Delicious Vermont Turkey sandwich with stuffing and cranberry sauce and what could be wrong with a salami, provolone sandwich? Nothing. We'll be back next visit long before it's time to drive home.

We went out for breakfast with high hopes - after all Ludlow is in Vermont and there should be plenty of good wholesome breakfast food.The name Java Baba sounded as if it might be the place for something good like freshly made oatmeal. It was well rated on Trip Advisor!!! What did they offer us - a prepackaged container to... More

My sister owns a condo at Okemo and is a coffee fiend - this is where she goes. I love the sandwich selection and the fact that you can eat there or get it to go. Easy parking doesn't hurt either. I love the quaint feel of downtown (vs this little vt-style strip mall) but if your goal is "good,... More

Their breakfast and lunch menus are not only diverse but reasonable priced and very good. Their variety of coffee beans are always a take home item. Friendly staff and great service.

A group of 8 of us ate lunch here and everyone seemed to enjoy the food. A wide assortment of creative menu items with something for everyone. The veggie burger was a particular favorite, not dry and very flavorful. We actually returned later in the day for coffee and ice cream, though the flavor choices this time of year were... More

Nice coffee shop in that area. I believe these places are needed in small towns since Starbucks is taking over our lives...Nice coffee, food, ambiance. Its very nice and I would go here again.
