A gem of a restaurant

You really MUST check this place out if you are anywhere in a 50 mile radius of Marshfield, VT. Some family stumbled upon it on a New England tour several years ago and haven't stopped exclaiming over it. I finally got within a reasonable distance (Smuggler's Notch, VT) and made the 90 minute drive... read more

We were visiting the Cabot Cheese factory in Cabot VT and looking for a local place to have lunch. We sure made the right decision when we stopped by the Rainbow Sweets Cafe. We loved meeting with Bill and felt right at home. The food was outstanding. Enjoyed our visit.

Traveling from Maine to Alexandria Bay, NY, we were looking for a place for a quick lunch when we spotted the sign for Rainbow Sweets in Marshfield VT. The sign said it was a "Bakery and Cafe", so we figured, if nothing more, we could grab a pastry and cup of coffee, From the moment we walked through the door,... More

We were driving to Peacham pond and stopped in starving. We were so glad we did! Excellent pastries (we took a large box to go) and delicious lunch. We laughed with the owner the whole meal through. My friend has already been back!

This place is amazing the food, the owners, you have to see it to believe it. So glad that we stumbled on this true gem. The pastries are amazing but his savory specialties are pure Heaven & the pizza? I feel like I'm in Sicily. Words can't do the whole experience justice

Very delicious and upscale pastries for a small town bakery and cafe. Items are pricey, but definitely worth giving them a try. The owner has a unique sense of humor that adds something to the experience if you are not easily offended.

Wonderful food! If you are within driving distance you must check this place out. Bill is the owner and has the gift of being a wonderful host and a baker. Your mind and your palate will be delighted.

Rainbow Sweets makes and serves some of the best pastries I've had. Their meat pies, spinach pies, spanakopita, European style pastries and desserts are incredible. All of their food is wrapped in dough or created in pie form. You'll end up eating more than you expected, all the while being entertained by Bill, the owner. Enough other reviewers explain the...

My friends and I were driving from Burlington to Bretton Woods and we decided to take a break when we reached Marshfield. This cafe is right on Route 2, so it is quite easy to spot. We walked in to find quite a few of European style pastries on display, and we were recommended "Johnny Depps" (their version of profiteroles).... More

Our family stopped in this cafe/bakery seeing the sign that said it served "lunch & dinner" - expecting hoagies or pizza and being pleasantly surprised to find a very unique dining experience. The dishes are all baked meals of recipes from all over the world and the desserts are just amazing. But, what we enjoyed the most, was the owner... More
