A wonderful experience for sweet treats and great lattes! A short walk from the Dorset Inn and worth the steps!

PHENOMENAL! Everything is good – you can’t go wrong with any of the menu items regardless of the meal. The homemade soups and take out pizza are particularly good. Overall, probably the best food in the area.

Stopped in for a quick pastry and espresso. Unfortunately do to covid, things take a bit longer. The staff was doing their best managing the number of customers and trying to get people their morning buzz.

Expensive over rated bakery worst croissants I think I had. Bought four (outrageous price) all different sizes and shapes and I disposed of them. Local landmark but I have been told baker turnover. You might catch it on a good day. Will maybe try again.

Hi, thank you for your feedback. We did experience a period of turnover, but feel that our croissants are now better than ever. Should you decide to give us another try, please mention this review for a coffee of us.

Friendly Staff, extensive variety of baked goods, but the food was very expensive and just so-so. Maybe I’ve lost touch, but nearly $40 for a salad, a sandwich, a scone, and two bottles of water was absolutely not what we expected. The roast beef sandwich...had perhaps two tablespoons total of beef. No chips, just the sandwich. The salad was delicious and well prepared. The place was very clean and the tables were comfortable. We did not dislike the place, but feel no reason to return.More

My first impression when I walked in here was calm. Bright eating area (indoors and outdoors), very charming, simply decorated, homey. The staff was darling. All the baked goods are made in-house. I also got an autumnal salad which was great, and an almond milk...cappucino, both of which were delicious. There were gluten free and dairy free options available for lunch.More

So many choices of all my favorites for lunch. Ate the Vermont BLT. It was amazing. Such a nice day. I ate out on the patio in the sun; it was delightful. Looking forward to next time.

We stopped here on the way back from Hildene, as we were in need of a sweet snack and hot drink. This cafe is perfect, delicious treats too many to mention.

We had driven past this restaurant many times and always wondered what it was like, so we stopped in for breakfast. The parking lot was quite full which ordinarily is a good sign. You order your food yourself at the main counter which eliminates a...server waiting on you. You also self serve your own coffee, water, and pick up your silverware and napkins. There are 2 and 4 seater tables in the dining area and we selected a 2 seater. The only problem was that the tables are so close together that we couldn't have a somewhat private conversation and we learned about the travel plans of the folks at the adjacent table. There was no problem with the food other than it being a little pricey for breakfast. After finishing our breaking we had to pick up our dishes, utensils, napkins etc., and place them in a bus pan. All in all. We were disappointed.More
