I visited with a good friend yesterday. We sat at bar and tried maple syrup chicken wings and garden veggie soup. Both were delicious.

We just happened upon it. We were looking for a place for lunch and didn't see anything that looked authentic. Well, we had a surprise when we walked in and only one local customer was at the bar. Right away the owner put on wonderful jazz, and treated us as if we were regulars. The ambience was quite special. As... More

Good jukebox, friendly staff and good atmosphere with some pretty good food to boot. One sticking point: this place does not take cards, and this no doubt loses more custom/money spent per visit than it saves: We always leave when we're running low on cash, but would often have preferred to stay.

Since it was our first time in Brattleboro we had no idea where to go for lunch. We just happen to come upon Kipling's and hit the jackpot. Thier home made chili was excellent, just a bit of a kick to it but not overly spicey. My partner had the Reuben sandwich with a generous portion of pastrami and sourkraut.

We found Kiplings almost by chance when we were looking for somewhere to have a drink ahead of our 4pm check in and were so glad we did. It's a really friendly welcoming place and the hosts - Jill and Kip - went out of their way to look after us. The locals were really friendly too and the bar... More

Just a regular old bar - good to grab a beer at. Be aware it is CASH ONLY. Thankfully I had just enough in my wallet!

Kips, as the locals call it, is a step above the typical bar fare. They do offer better the average food when it comes to a bar type of place. They have a real kitchen so that certainly helps. They are a cash only so that lowers their marks in my review .
