Good Coffee, needs some updating

Really liked the coffee, but disappointed in not having a dairy free option like Soy milk. The atmosphere is fine, and the seating is ample for the heavy traffic.

This is what you get in a town with one coffee place – zero competition creates a rapacious, take it or leave it type of place – if there were competition – which this place has never had – it would be closed in a month. Its current location is crowded, cramped and poorly laid out. Its counter people are... More

We saw them... then smelled that great coffee. How good was our cups of joe you ask? We took home 3 bags to grind for ourselves. We went back and I can say Good chai also. Definitely a must if you enjoy good coffee. They have sandwiches and pastries but did not have any. They looked good though.

If you are in Montpelier and want to have a nice lunch or just a coffee come here, the service is also great. Food Is mostly sandwiches and they taste great. My favorite is turkey with artichoke.

We stopped by on a rainy day for a quick bite and the sandwiches were fantastic. Really good flavor and choices. Would definitely come back if we were in town longer.

the grounds were immaculate, very well tended, yet very inviting and casual and well used by the townsfolk for lounging, playing or conversing - very nice
