Drinks and staff were good just needs something to bring it above the competition. Maybe music as too quiet. Almost like a store not a cafe.

Stopped by for lunch and was impressed with the expansive menu for such a small place. They offer soup, salads, sandwiches, wraps plus morning breakfast items. A special note...they close at 5 until season begins.

We tried their local Vermont ice cream and it was big enough to share for two people. The server engaged very well with us and even gave us a little tour advice. They also have pizza but it was too early to order. They only available at lunch time.

Quality ideas and well thought out menu. A little overwhelming though and very hard to decide because the menu is written on... More

We stopped in for breakfast on the way to an orchard. I had the Americano which was strong and piping hot. I also had a sausage egg and cheese on a hard roll. Soft hard roll and perfectly cooked egg, but the star was the cheese...VT sharp cheddar. Overall, perfect little stop in downtown.

Slow service, bagel was good. Very friendly. Would hate to see his place on a busy day. I guess I would come back if there was no where else to go.

This is a great place to stop for a bite. Mom and I had the eggplan sandwich. She wished it had some sauce on it. I wish I had some hot peppers to give it a bit more flavor though I stilll love it. The white bread was too bland for the eggplant. Next time I would choose a different... More
