Having recently moved to Troy, NY I decided to take a little day trip up to Bennington since I hadn't been there before. This place caught my eye so I decided to stop in. It had a cozy and welcoming atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed my chai latte and plan on trying some of the food next time I'm in the area. It's a charming little place in the heart of a charming little downtown.

I used to come here over 10 years ago when my mother lived here and used to meet her friends here once a week. Very little has changed, great coffee, relaxed atmosphere and wonderful baked goods. I really appreciated the home made sour dough breads and almost got them to sell me sour dough starter if I had been here when they were starting the bread. I had chicken curry salad and my so had tuna salad and both were tasty and fresh. I know most of the places in Bennington and South street cafe was where we decided to stop while driving through town.

Loved this place!!!! We had a great breakfast, delicious coffee and pastries made on site. The cafe is small and the staff is happy and welcoming. Most of the tables were filled when we got there and looked like the clients were mostly regulars! As we left, a small band was setting up to play for the lunch crowd. Loved the bathroom decor!

I love South Street Cafe! Their breakfast sandwiches are great, bagels are fresh, they make a bunch of baked goods, delicious drinks, they serve soups and sandwiches. Inside you will find work from local artists and they even have live music on some days. Prices are affordable, food is delicious, parking on the street or nearby parking lots, easy to find, good sized seating and free wifi. Lots of vegan options and delicious coffees. Remember they make everything from scratch! Definitely a spot to check out!
