I have nothing factual to add to what other reviewers have written. This place is quirky and AWESOME!! If I'm in town at lunchtime this is my first go-to place. If the line is too long I (regrettably) go elsewhere. Bring cash - your CCs...More

Food and service was fantastic! They were getting ready to close but stayed open a few more minutes for us. So glad they did; food was amazing. If we ever make it back through town we will be stopping back in.

If you are looking for an alternative lunch in downtown Montpelier, try this place! Downside is, they are open only for lunch I believe and small space.
