Stopped in for a quick coffee in downtown Montpelier, came out with "cafe chocolat" (sp?), their take on a latte made with frothed chocolate milk, sprinkled with cocoa. Simply.the.best.cup. we ever had!!!!

“Exceptional hot chocolate!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I've enjoyed many bagels and cups of coffee here, but I had no idea until today that their hot-chocolate was so delicious. Sweet and kid-friendly, it was also remarkably rich. Enjoy.

“Satisfying Menu and Ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I stopped in Montpelier on my travels late on a Sunday afternoon in early December looking for a decent cup of coffee. Most coffeeshops were closed at this hour but, to my surprise, Capitol Grounds was open and packed with people. This was, indeed, a most pleasant surprise. Not only could I find fresh roasted coffee but the luncheon menu was outstanding. And so I had lunch and coffee that couldn't have satisfied more. The luncheon menu is varied and there were so many offerings that one could have. Teas are also available for the non coffee drinkers. I also enjoyed the laid back ambiance. Capitol Grounds really feels like a Vermont country cafe. Seating is plentiful and comfortable. On my next trip through northern Vermont I will definitely plan my route to stop in Montpelier specifically for Capitol Grounds.

“Best Cup of Joe around....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

10 degrees out ands in in desperate need of a cup of coffee Sunday morning. Found it here. Only problem was I had to wait until 8am until they opened. Place doesn't move early enough for me but it was worth the wait.
