Coffee is a bit hit and miss when it comes to taste. Here you can have it as you want it. I like mine like I can get in Europe and here it is great. Add in the wonderful pastries and I am transported back to a wonderful place. The baristas have the attitude I have come to expect in... More

The staff at Black Cap cannot keep up the pace & it's quite frustrating when you're on your way to work & you're stuck in line for 20 minutes waiting. The attitude of the staff is pretty lukewarm too which makes it an even more bitter pill to swallow. Last gripe; no vegetarian sandwiches. In 2014 it's pretty unusual to... More

Nothing quite as gloomy as deferred Spring in Vermont: stacks of tired, dirty snow, fog, sleet, freezing rain....awful...and then, right on Main Street (Rte 100) in Stowe village is the oasis also known as Black Cap Coffee. Expansive seating, wider variety of beverages, and some truly awsome pastries. Not quite transported to the tropics, but a delightful interlude. Friendly helpful... More

This place was great! They have homemade english muffin breakfast sandwiches they make daily - it was a nice treat to be able to get something that reminded me of home while I was away on business!

Ended up in this coffee house to spend a few hours working etc. while my wife enjoyed the slopes of Stowe (I had knee surgery recently...). As it was a plain guess, I think I made a good choice! The coffee definitely was good, I really liked their Macchiato. Had a sandwich too, which tasted good. Not their primary offer.... More

The Black Cap has a bunch of different coffee choices, good pastry choices, WiFi and really comfy couches and chairs to relax in to get out of the cold for a while!

My friend and I went there every morning during our ski trip because it was the only place which opened for those whose hotel not included breakfast. Hot cider was amazing, hot chocolate, mint latte, cappuccino, espresso were all good. Sandwiches were acceptable, and not over-price. Staffs were really nice, but they looked a bit sleepy, I could not blame... More

If you want a latte or espresso drink this place will do but don't bother with any of the food offerings. Egg sandwiches made ahead with pre-made egg produce not a fresh cracked egg. All the food offerings were only marginally a step above a fast food product but were not even cooked fresh?? Why bother? Coffee was weak.

I had a great experience at this little shop. It was an extremely cold day so we walked down from our hotel, the place was extremely busy and the staff took order after order and didn't get anything mixed up or better yet didn't take forever. We were pleased.
