Stopped in for a coffee while strolling in downtown Stowe. The espresso was perfectly made, tasted great and was served in a real cup. Who gets an espresso to go? It's only a shot, toss it down there at the bar and leave.

This is a small casual place where you can get items to go or eat in.We picked up breakfast sandwiches and pastries to take back to our house. They had a nice selection and were quite tasty. It is small with only a few tables. They have a good selection of coffees and teas too!

I would have to agree with the reviewer who said the staff just stared at you and wasn't friendly, which is too bad because this place has the potential to be a neat little hangout as it is right on the Main St. I won't hurry to go back there.

The espresso the way we all like it: very strong and with just a hint of spices that don't overwhelm the taste of coffee. Always a favorite spot whenever we're in Stowe.

Pumpkins on the porch greeted us before we moseyed inside and dosed up on the good stuff. A beautiful noisette-style macchiato with beans roasted by Brave Coffee & Tea, former owners of the café. It's a cute little place, a little artsy with an adjoining ceramic studio and gallery. Pre-made breakfast sandwiches sit in a cabinet in the mornings plus... More

The coffee was ok but not great. I like to drink my coffee out of a real mug rather than a paper cup but did not have a choice. I ordered the quiche and it was served cold and I was told I could heat it up in the microwave. After many tries so as not to overheat it I... More

This is a lovely little independent coffee shop. The service is excellent, and the staff are friendly and attentive. The tea/coffee selections are very nice - tending towards local/artisanal creations, which I love. The baked goods include some excellent gluten free choices every day, which is another big plus for me. They are invariably delicious! Seating is spacious, comfortable and... More

Right in downtown Stowe . . . lots of seating with several spots on the front porch and front windows. They have a nice selection of both coffee and tea and they were quite good. Also a nice assortment of tasty treats. It was a welcome spot to see on a rainy day.

I wanted to like the local coffee shop. The location is neat and the interior is nicely appointed with comfortable couches, etc. However, one comes to a coffee shop for the coffee. My cup was not particularly good (medium roast) and their labeling system looks as if someone opened a thesaurus of coffee terms and spewed them out. It was... More

I visited Stowe on vacation and was looking for a coffee shop in the area and I happened upon the Black Cap Coffee shop. I'm very glad I found this place! The maple lattes are amazing and they use real local maple syrup in them. I was also able to get my latte with almond milk which was great for... More
