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.

We're sorry you didn't have a better experience during your visit. It was a very busy weekend for us and we did run out of items earlier than anticipated. If you're in the area again, please come back so we can provide you a better experience! More

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.

I had some time to kill while my daughter was touring Bennington College and spent an hour here in the afternoon. The place has a great layout, vibe and was quite welcoming. My Cappucino came in a big cup and was prepared perfectly. I was able to crash in a very comfortable chair, plug in my laptop and get some... More

A good latte is a daily requirement for us, and that's what we found here. Before leaving I complimented the baristas and had a very interesting discussion about espresso machines. From that it was obvious that a great deal of care is given to making the espresso drinks, and that makes all the difference.

This is a very cute little restaurant on Route 7 on South Street in Bennington. The staff is Vermont friendly and helpful. One orders from the wide list of items on the boards on the wall behind the counter. There are tables throughout the restaurant where, once your food is prepared, you can sit, relax and enjoy your meal. There... More
