I have very rarely written a review that is this negative - especially since we only had a late afternoon snack. I ordered an iced tea that tasted like someone had smoked a cigarette in it. My husband's gelato (chocolate) was not sweet, lacked smoothness and overall, was not very good. Our friends had hot coffee that was fine, but... More

I live about an hour from Woodstock, and I like to go exploring country roads and little towns, check out cafes and coffee houses whenever I can. Woodstock is a very touristy town and visibly geared toward wealthy visitors unlike any other places in Vermont. There is a luxury resort inn & golf club right in town and big ski... More

Stopped in for a quick breakfast and coffee. My husband and I shared the Orange Pecan scone, which was very generous in size and tasty! That and 2 coffees was $8, so a bit pricey but seems to be in line w other Woodstock-area prices.

The Daily Grind was a great little find in Woodstock to have a light breakfast. The coffee was outstanding. I ordered a pumpkin latte and it was the best I have ever had.

When you have a virtual monopoly and all your customers and will never come back, why would you need to bother about the quality of your food, or your customer service. The quiche I had was truly dreadful. Other customers agreed. Yet they defended it as normal.

There is NO better way to start your day in Woodstock than with a Maple latte and a homemade scone!!! Although I prefer this "lighter" type of breakfast, the Daily Grind offers a much more diverse menu, which changes often.

Stopped here with my husband and 17 month old. The staff was sooo sweet, they event helped make a booster so my son could sit at the table. They made a special one pancake for him and really were very sweet. My pumpkin spice latte was delicious and worthy of the walk from the hotel in the rain. The cranberry... More

We like to get a coffee or Latte here and then go sit by the creek back toward downtown Woodstock. It's the closest to a Starbucks between Woodstock and Springfield, Massachusetts.

Friendly unpretentious eating. Extensive menu. Read it all before you order and avoid wishing you had tried something else. Stroll around town after your meal. Check out the independent public library a block west of the Daily Grind.

Beware of the New York attitude. Didn't appreciate the nasty attitude by the counter girl when seeing a SERVICE animal. Of course, dogs are not allowed in, but a Seeing Eye Dog goes anywhere. Train your staff to open their eyes and not their mouths. Now, my rant is over. Had really excellent coffee and shared our first PUMPKIN Whoopee... More
