Food was okay. Very few seats. A lot of people crowded into a small space. Belgian Waffles served in a hard clear plastic container.

The cafe’s offers over a dozen varieties of sandwiches daily. These include: Roast beef, turkey, black forest ham, Café chicken salad, curried chicken salad, Tuna salad, home-made hummus, turkey Rachel, cafe club, grilled cheese, BLT, Roast Beef Revisited, salami. I had the Café Chicken Salad...sandwich on whole wheat bread with the White Bean and Ham soup. That day, they also served Curried Carrot & Ginger, Hungarian Mushroom soups and Vegetarian Chili. Everything was delicious and just hit the spot on a cold rainy day.More

All was excellent. No bigtime dining room, just tables outside and a few inside. Ordered at the counter and then you just wait for it. You can see the cooks prepare the food which was right to order. My wife's bacon was finally crispy and...our "easy over" eggs were just that. The check was quite reasonable, especially compared to others in prior days. The only downside was quite a bit of plastic waste but you never worry if the dishes were clean or not! Overall the best breakfast we had in 3 days.More

Outstanding Grilled Cheese Sandwich and BLT. Good fresh-squeezed orange juice. The server mixed up my order (I was ordering for a party of four, myself and three friends) with somebody else, though, so we got someone else's turkey sandwiches and didn't get all our sandwiches....That never happened before; could be because they were busy; I was very specific with the order.More

We had breakfast there. They give food in take away containers even if you want to eat there. We sat outside. Decent place, nothing special

Lovely people but they were in over their heads and there seemed to be a lot of confusion behind the counter. my breakfast sandwich was overcooked and the bun was burnt and greasy. My companion's bacon was nearly uncooked and his waffles were just tasteless....It was very unfortunate. In addition there were flies crawling on the cookies and pastries that were in the glass case and it just didn't seem very well looked after.More

People were standing around the two inside tables so we went outside to sit. The coffee was good, the food not so good. Then we were told they needed our chairs for a large group of regulars so we got up and left.

This is right next to the Green Mountain Inn, which is not serving lunch right now due to staffing issues, so this place is quite handy. They have outside tables, but really it is a take out spot. Guests at the Green Mountain Inn can...take the cafe on Main sandwiches to eat in the library at the Inn. Food is fresh and very good and the people who work there are lovely.More

We stumbled upon this place on our way out of town. We were needing to pick up some sandwiches for the road, and wow these were great. I had the #2 turkey sandwich and my husband hand the #1 roast beef sandwich. When we finally...chowed down on them several hours later we were surprised by how amazing these simple sandwiches were. The cranberry mayo on the turkey was next level. Highly recommend if you need a quick lunch on the go.More

My friends and I picked up lunch after other restaurants were closed. The food was good. The line was long and the room felt crowded in these COVID days, but the staff was efficient and there are benches and tables in the area. We had...grilled cheese, hummus, and curried chicken salad among us. All were good.More

Excellent BLT sandwich and chicken n dumplings soup. It’s a walk up and order. Super busy but efficient. Very little space to eat but worth the visit

This was a good spot for a quick bite, with breakfast and lunch options. You order at the counter, then wait until they call your name with your order. I had the BLT which, as far as BLTs go, was pretty good. Outdoor seating was...available right in front. Beware - this is a popular stop for tour groups, which can cause a bit of a wait just for a sandwich.More
