Happened upon this store while visiting Manchester. Got a delicious lunch and sat outside at a picnic table with a view of the mountains. Also had to get some freshly baked scones. Friendly and cheerful staff!

Wonderful store with friendly staff. Has everything you need or want. If you are staying nearby, wonderful place for cheese, sandwiches, delicious baked goods, wine, whatever. Always go there when I am staying at the Dorset Inn, which is also fabulous!

A gem of a store. Take in a freshly baked scone, fresh brewed coffee and enjoy whilst sitting on one of the benches on the green watching Vermont life pass you by.

Happened upon the Dorset Union Store and it is a slice of heaven! The food (all homemade or locally grown) is amazing. The tollhouse cookies and donuts are sinful. The staff is beyond accommodating and it is what we wish all our retail experiences could...More

Dorset Union Store, established circa 1816, is a Vermont experience. It's a small country store with a great big selection of wines, foods, coffees, daily fresh baked goods, soups, pizza, sandwiches, and anything you would crave for dinner at home is yours to-go. Even penny...More
