GF bread is available. Many people were coming in for breakfast and the food going out looked amazing. Quinessential Vermont atmosphere. Loved it and will... More

The menu will overwhelm you with so many choices, we had the grilled cheese and it was excellent, it even came with a wedge of watermelon. The staff was really friendly and helpful.

Three friends stopped here for lunch and all dishes were great the the veggie burger was best I have ever had by far. I highly recommend. The fresh juice was also great. Love that food is so fresh with so many healthy options. I will be back.

We dropped by for a fresh juice with quality ingredients. Enjoyed this as take out, and came back for 2 wonderful fresh salads of generous proportions and fun service. Great people. Well worth your stop for quality. All generations seem happy here.
