A Bring Your Own Beer restaurant. Recommended by the hotel but very disappointing. Food was just warm enough to eat and expensive for what was served. The menu had not been updated – not a case of running out of it but they no longer did the item we requested. 2 kitchen staff sat in the restaurant in work clothes... More

Needed to get a quick sandwich before heading to a wedding and we tried this. Great sandwiches to choose from!

The restaurant is in a lovely typical house of the Vermont area. The lunch menu is small, The salads are mostly lots of fresh lettuce and little of anything else. Very good wraps and great coffee.

Great seating, with couches etc. menu options all looked great. We got the beans salad and the quiche special and finished off with their bread pudding. Mains didn't seem filling but they were delicious. The bread pudding was huge! Definitely for sharing. It's a BYOB restaurant so be prepared to bring your booze.

Loved the food and atmosphere. Had a wonderful conversation with the owner about his varied life and family. We traded stories.

Unusual space and menu. Half furniture store and half restaurant. Ate in and had a ground lamb topped flatbread which was tasty. Good for takeout too.

Located by designer outlet stores all made to resemble old structures, some are new construction. This is older construction. 1850c. We went for lunch. The number that can be seated actually quite small. Big tables for two people occupy a lot of space. Many would be patrons walked out. The day was wet dark gray August day. The restaurant quite...

This is the loveliest and most delightful place to eat. The food was delicious, and the chef graciously prepared one of his signature chicken dishes for me without chicken since I'm a vegetarian. The young staff is warm and helpful, and the chef will come out and greet you and ask how everything is. If you eat outside, it's dog... More

My wife had the brie over scrambled eggs with rosemary. I had the ham and "hash". This was by no means a traditional hash! It was by far the most unique and by far the best hash i have ever had. It had red onions, wilted spinach, baby potatoes, herbs, and a parmesan peppercorn sauce that enhanced rather than overpowered... More

We had lunch and the food was very good. It was a lovely, little place. The service is a bit slow, so don't go if you are in a hurry.

At Ponce we specialize in Exquisite Fusion Cuisine. Start the day with a perfect crema latte and flaky French crossaint. By noon the lavendar goat cheese salad beckons, followed by a home brewed cup of chai and our famous chocolate chip cookies. Finally the day is complete over a relaxing candlelight dinner of salmon tarragon bisque and tenderly broiled raspberry chipotle skirt steak, accompanied by a favorite Cabernet that you brought with you.
