“fine place, great coffee, great food, great service and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

All around the best place to hang out with locals in Montpelier. The food is great and the coffee which they roast themselves is wonderful.

“Best coffee for miles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Pastries fresh, coffee delicious. Eggnog latte unparalleled. Atmosphere a mix of earthy hippy and dog earred, crusty philanthropy.

“Very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Went to this place on the day of the farmers market, it was very very good. The coffee is fantastic and the food was delicious. We got a breakfast burrito and a chocolate milkshake and coffees and they were all delicious! The place was always full and a line to order the whole time we were there, quite a popular place downtown. I cant wait to go back, it was very nice to sit and have coffee here.

“Great Coffee Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Want great coffee drinks? Great people watching? A comfortable, unpretentious atmosphere to read, work on your computer, talk with friends? This is the place. Not fancy, but good light lunch fare. Our wheat veggie wraps were outstanding. If ordering food, just be prepared to wait. It's a small kitchen but what comes out of it works. We stop here every time we visit the state capitol.

“Great coffee and a place to sit and plug in.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

I was early for a meeting in Montpelier once upon a time and stopped in to grab coffee and take advantage of their free wifi. Staff was friendly, coffee was delicious, and the internet was zippy. Can't ask for much more...
