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

Packed with locals! They roast their own and it's quite good (and available for purchase at the Hunger Mountain Coop nearby). The roast is pretty dark; I usually get the cafe au lait to cut it a bit.
