Every town need a Moon Dog. The problem is it is too individual to copy....The setting is a cozy little and interesting group of shops with an Aladdin's Cafe named the Moon Dog. The interior displays a weird and wonderful collection of gifts, art and amazing Italian chocolates.....not a bad start as you move deeper into the building which by now you are faced by gastronomic heaven, not forgetting the much appreciated music (is it samba or rumba, not sure).
I went for the homemade lemon chicken soup and toasted chunky bread......great range of homemade and healthy - excellent lentil dishes (I sound like a hippy)....if this place was closer I would be there every day, I would eat well and healthy, the staff are excellent and the usual
customers are friendly....any time is the right time to visit for quality food in a warm and relaxing environment....Two weeks before I return to the uk, will manage a few more Moon Dog visits....HIGHLY RECOMMEND......no alcohol(put this in because I screwed up the bar scene rating - sorry)

If you find yourself in Chester, VT on a Sunday morning, make sure to stop at the Moon Dog where you will find THE MOST DELICIOUS FRESH BAKED BREAD PUDDING MUFFINS. These muffins are so outrageously good that it is worth a trip there just to have the muffins! Of course there are many other wonderful baked goods and delicious soups to also try at Moon Dog. My personal all time favorite soup is the chicken tortilla soup. The Cafe's vibe is very warm and friendly and the staff is eager to please and welcome you.

While you're in Chester -- don't miss the Vermont Contemporary Art Gallery down the street. There's also a great little store called ''The Pear Tree" that specializes in jewelery, gifts, home goods.

I can't wait to hang out in the Moon Dog Cafe each winter while my family is skiing at nearby Okemo!

We stay at the Inn Victoria and sometimes sleep in and miss breakfast! The Moon Dog is a great backup plan! The food is amazing, the coffee is amazing and the vibe of the place makes us love Vermont that much more. Did I mention the Ginger Scones?? Oh My this is a must stop for great eats!!

We always make several trips to Moondog when we are up in the area. The cafe/shop itself is very charming and eclectic. They serve only organic foods and their prepared foods are really good. Seems like everything is locally sourced. Definitely get a latte or cappuccino - they will make you say, "Starbucks, who?"
