“Great Experience, Great Service and Great Coffee!”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

This coffee shop knows how to whip up some excellent grounds! Roasting coffee from fair trade beans and doing it all locally. Their cups are environmentally conscious and the shop supports numerous local artists. The service was friendly and if your in a rush their is a self service coffee bar. If you want a real local flavor visit this place and order a maple latte! :)

“Dissapointed with the pumpkin special”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

We had the pumpkin frappe and a pumpkin latte, but both had a very odd taste. We ended up throwing both out. However, the atmosphere inside was quite nice with lots of places to lounge around. Perhaps it was just a bad batch?

“Don't Bother not worth the effort”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

We stayed in Stowe over the Columbus day weekend.
Stopped in to the Black Cap for coffee.
Parking is tight and you have to back into the street to exit,
so I live parked while my wife ran in. One of the locals informed
me that I could not park (even for a minute) I have to move.
I told her ( she is a local artist in the back of the cafe)
that I was waiting for my wife to which she said if I did not move she would call the police, To which I said call them. She then went inside and heckled my wife
(in front of the owner and other customers) and came out with a pen and paper and took my plate number. This kind of rude behavior on the part of the small business,
with a clicky coffee shop with snobby artists in the back insulting the visitors
is a place to avoid. Coffee was not bad but on the expensive side.
Not worth the effort.

“cozy little coffee house”
Reviewed September 29, 2011

good coffee (try the siphon pot); good pastries; good sandwiches; great homemade granola; knowledgable staff, friendly too; good background music, not too loud; free wi-fi; usually a free newspaper floating around; nice art gallery; a couple of table & chairs out on front porch; cozy couches inside; does get very warm inside during the summer; has live music a couple or three times per week; used to serve crepes, were very yummy, miss them; used to have 50 cent drip coffee refills but not anymore, bummer.
