We stopped in for a late lunch of margherita pizza and salad for me and a specialty sandwich for my husband while exploring Middlebury. The salad was exceptional, and my husband enjoyed his sandwich. While the servers were nice, I wish they had been a little more attentive to the fact that we were obvious newcomers and given us better... More

This place opens early in the day, an on line review mentioned that they serve egg sandwiches so we visited expecting a breakfast selection. Their breakfast selection is "egg sandwich", only. We ordered a roasted chicken sandwich and a beef sandwich. What we received were a couple of sandwiches that were delicious, but far more food than one person can... More

On a warm day, Sama's Cafe is a nice stop for yummy creemies and ice cream. If you are hungry, the wood fired pizza is very good. I stay away from the rest of the food options. I gave Sama's a 3 because the creemie stand is a 4 and the food side is a 2.

We stopped here twice for lunch while visiting the area. The first time we all loved the items we choose. The 2nd time my husband had his heart set on pizza but found out that Sama's doesn't serve pizza during lunch, which we thought was strange. We went here because their outdoor dining area is dog-friendly

The food at Sama's is really good and the counter service is pretty fast. Also easy to run over from campus to grab something from the store section.

Lemon "chicken" soup was a cup of salty water (guess it was broth) with 4 small potato chunks. Quiche was under-done. Clam chowder was gluey and salty. Turkey on sandwich was slimy.

There is something for everyone in this cozy, country restaurant. I met a friend for lunch today and we were both happy with our selections. I had the falafel pita which was tasty and my friend ordered a salad which was colorful and fresh. This is a popular spot and the staff did a nice job of moving folks along... More

Our family recently had lunch at the Cafe during Middlebury Graduation. Everyone enjoyed their lunch selections (pizza, wraps, soups, mac-n-cheese, and sandwiches). The ordering process was smooth, selections were made quick, and the quantity of food was excellent. In addition to the food, there was an ample selection of beverages and desserts too!

We were just treated like absolute garbage by the owner of this restaurant, simply because he heard us order more wraps than we actually did. At the end of a difficult exchange, the owner got more and more abusive when finally, my girlfriend said, "Don't you dare yell at me!" and the owner screamed back across the counter, "I JUST...
