We picked this place off the internet after spending three rainy days camping in the area. We wanted a hearty, tasty RESTAURANT breakfast after three mornings of instant oatmeal and cold muffins. It looked promising from the exterior, and the inside seemed pleasant and clean....We were not put off by the notion of ordering at the counter and picking up - that's fine. We both ordered the same breakfast - scrambled eggs, bacon, toast. I had to settle for a vending machine style bottle of OJ, drunk from the bottle. He had coffee, which he said was okay. I carry my own tea bags (having had too many places tell me that Earl Grey is the same as black tea, or had a wide variety of bizarre herbals like "Cinnamon and Turmeric".) I was not charged for a cup of VERY hot (hurrah!!!) water . Our breakfasts were brought out on paper plates with flimsy plastic cutlery. Egg portions were generous and well-done, though lacking seasonings. Bacon was slightly over-cooked and very greasy. Toast was served buttered but there was no jam or jelly with it. It was pretty dry and tasteless. It seemed to be a popular place with the locals, but the primary draw seemed to be flavored coffee drinks. Maybe they should stick to that. It wasn't a good place to get breakfast. I know times are tough for food service establishments, and I'd love to write a rave review, but we just didn't feel like this place was trying very hard with the food. On the bright side, it WAS very clean and well cared-for. Bathroom was spotless.More

Good evening, When you arrived at our café and asked where to sit, our staff kindly invited you to sit anywhere you like, and told you that you order at the counter. We were very clear that it was counter service only. At that point...More

Exceptional service (thanks, Ethan), fabulous food, and delightful eating experience. My service dog (Molly) was welcomed and slept underneath the table. She loved the atmosphere too! Peaceful and quiet - definitely a lovely place to eat lunch! We will be back!

What a lovely cafe. The staff are amazing, always friendly and smiling. The place is spotless, even outside and the food is wonderful. Some of the bakery items seem a little high priced, but they sure are tasty. Breakfast or lunch, you will not be...disappointed. Free refills on coffee would be a nice perk though. It would also be nice if meals were served on plates with silverware vs paper and plastic. Not good for the environment.More

This place was a real treat. The menu was very, very creative. We were there for breakfast, and I had the Vermonter, an egg sandwich with cheddar cheese, maple bacon, green apples on fresh raisin bread. My mocha was also very good. I also got...some treats to go and the maple scone was delicious. Even though I highly recommend this bakery, the one thing that would seriously improve the experience would be real plates and silverware. I hope the paper plates and plastic cutlery are just for Covid precautions, but overall great job.More

Located downtown but somewhat isolated in an old industrial location. Easy access by foot or by car with easy parking. Great lineup of baked goods and coffee. Open and airy building.

We were greeted in Claremont by a pedestrian yelling at us to "Go back to New York!". We got a couple of good sandwiches at The Barn, but the attitude there was annoying, masks were optional for patrons & servers, and we hightailed it out...of town.More

A taste reminiscent of Burlington, VT's best has made its home in Claremont. Homemade, FRESH, delicious. Reasonably priced considering the quality of ingredients. Love the local, hair-growing coffee. I am a repeat customer of #13 on focaccia. They have Healthy stuff, Gooey stuff, sweet stuff,...rib-stickin' stuff. Owned by a young local family who learned hard-work the ole fashioned way. Don't come on sunday, they will be at Worship.More
