“Bakery and more ...”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The sandwiches and salads are fresh, delicious and made with local ingredients. You can sit on the sidewalk and watch the Brattleboro scene or sit inside at the back of the cafe and enjoy views of the Connecticut River, the trains and New Hampshire's Mount Wantastiquet. The service is top-notch - it might seem like it's crowded but the staff are always at the ready to take your order and payment and the cooks are fast and friendly. The BLT is great. The everything sticks are delicious. The baguettes are worth taking home.

“Excellent”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

One of my favorite Brattleboro spots. You do have to order at the counter and hope you can hear your name called when the food is ready, but beyond that, a nice place with a nice ambiance. Haven't had their pastries, but their sandwiches are superb. The dining room is in the back (which may not be that obvious when you do in) and you get a good view of the river, the train tracks and Wantastiquet Mountain. Look forward to the next time I get to Brattleboro.

“fabulous view, mediocre pastry”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Many friends and family members recommended this place. We got one of the small tables overlooking the river: absolutely lovely view. In foliage season, it would be beyond spectacular. The food, I'm sad to say, was a major disappointment. We bought a loaf of bread to go: that was excellent. The pastries, sandwiches, etc. eaten at the restaurant were nothing special. You could do better just around the corner at the large organic grocery coop. Their baked goods are better, and they have an excellent selection of local produce and dairy.

“Excellent sandwiches and muffins”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We made this a regular haunt in a week long stay in Brattleboro. Great coffee - with good views from the back of the cafe - lovely muffins and excellent sandwiches, with lots of choice. We also bought a couple of their loaves of bread.

“Fresh and delicious”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Once you have survived the sometimes chaotic pushing and shoving at the order counter in the front of the shop, you are in for a treat. All the sandwiches are made to order and you can customize them to suit your taste. Ingredients are top notch and the rolls and breads are made in house and are marvelous. Pastries are not as decadent as one might wish but the cookies are varied and mostly satisfying. Coffees and teas are excellent. Seating is limited and tables don't turn over as quickly as they might, for which I blame the lovely Connecticut River views. If the weather is nice, take your sandwiches down the street to Pliny Park (turn right when you leave Amy's, cross the street and walk 1/2 block. Brattleboro has more than its share of interesting characters and you won't be bored.
