I used to come here over 10 years ago when my mother lived here and used to meet her friends here once a week. Very little has changed, great coffee, relaxed atmosphere and wonderful baked goods.

Loved the atmosphere here. Not cramped but some decent size and just the right decor and feeling. Coffee was good. Pastry was pretty good too. Good place to stop in a small town!

Located on south street, downtown Bennington, VT. We stumbled upon this cafe while walking the downtown. Staff was friendly. Pastries were excellent along with our cappuccino. Free Wi-Fi is a bonus since cell and data service can be spotty.

Stopped here on a Saturday evening going through town. Friendly staff and fresh eats - even at the end of the day. Nice change from fast food and tasty parries to boot!

Go early since they run out of quiche, bagels, and other items. The coffee includes a free refill. The egg for the sandwich is cooked in a microwave.

I wound up here when I discovered the Brown Cow Cafe was closed Sundays. The coffee and bagels were good, and the atmosphere was fine.

Fantastic place. Great home made breads, superb sandwiches, coffee galore including Breve (my new favorite). Friendly staff and hipster ambiance. Definitely a highly recommended place to eat, drink and meet friends.
