We happened upon this place while driving north to tour a few breweries, and it was absolutely wonderful!! The food was outstanding and the employees were very friendly and welcoming. Literally some of the best breakfast food I have ever had. We had the bread pudding muffin and the egg soufflé. Highly recommended. Coffee was also excellent.

We dined in for lunch. Our food was ok (just ok) but after the great reviews I did expect much better. There was not a great range of food available, I did not think the place was very clean, and I think there are much better places to eat in the town

Stopped for lunch. Fresh gourmet sandwiches, soups,salads and pastries. Seems everyone knew each other. Wish I had a place like this at home, guess I will need to go back!

The meatloaf sandwich was HUGE and the best one I've ever had. The atmosphere is really friendly too.

A real gem, an informal organic cafe and natural foods store in Chester, with food lovingly made and served. For lunch, we each chose the beef barley soup, thick and nourishing. The hearty turkey sandwich was a feast in itself: country bread, thick slices of turkey with stuffing and topped with cranberry sauce. The pastries and cakes in the display... More

This cute little cafe was just what my family and I were looking for! I always get nervous bringing my 2 1/2 old twins out to restaurants- never mind a cafe! It was perfectly laid back and the food was Delicious! They had specialty grilled cheeses and homemade broccoli cheddar soup- so good! The kids each had a grilled cheese... More

We settled in here for lunch during an artisans' fair on the Chester Green. Lunch options were fairly varied, reasonably priced and the service was good. you order at a counter, the take a seat, and your server finds you and brings the food (aka Panera style). All in all, great spot for a quick bite.

This cafe will be a regular stop for us when traveling to VT. The owner and her staff are down to earth and super friendly. But what really stands out is the quality of the food. Lentil soup, chicken salad, and meatloaf sandwiches were all amazing. Do yourself a favor and track this place down.
