I reviewed Black Cap over a year ago, and though I don't usually bother with an update, I found that the place has steadily deteriorated. It is such a missed opportunity for Black Cap's owners. One of Vermont's premier attractions, Stowe needs a great coffee shop, but this place needs a lot of attention. The baristas do not understand how... More

We were in Stowe to see the sights and wanted to sit for a coffee. Black Cap filled the bill for us. My husband's Americano was based on a smooth and tasty shot. I inquired about the granola -- homemade there, very fresh, with nuts -- which comes with natural yogurt. The serving was generous and hearty. I also had... More

Went their for a light breakfast and coffee our second day of a two day visit to Stowe. The croissants were very fresh and the coffees made as we requested just right for us. Weak latte . We were able to make use of. Their available free wifi that we found easy to use and efficient.

Great selection of baked-goods, cards, and nice gift items (and not too cheesy) in a nice, big room with cozy seating and free wifi. I'm only giving 3-stars as the coffee was just so-so, but better than Starbucks, which isn't all that difficult, but says something as to the quality.

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
