“Yum!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

This place is delicious! Everything we've had here has been great and they the best espresso drinks in the area.
I think there's not necessarily a set menu, so you need to go with the flow, but this place does not disappoint. Definitely visit if you're in the area. We've been there several times with and without our two young children.

“What a find!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

This is a place for coffee and a sandwich, but it's so far beyond that: wonderful coffee made very carefully, iced tea made from scratch (and there's sweet syrup available which always makes iced tea better), crusty almost Parisian sourdough bread and bagettes, and elegant and tasty desserts, including perfect square truffles and sables (cocolate cookies that literally melt in your mouth). All made and for sale on the premises. The place looks sort of empty, but that may be its secret -- they don't try to do more than they can do. There's a short list of coffees, and when we visited, there were only two sandwiches on the menu: lobster on sourdough or vegetables on sourdough. Each sandwich was absolutely world-class - lobster as sweet and fresh as any you'd get any place else in New England, and perfectly fresh vegetables and cheeses perfectly matched. Even the water carafe on the table was elegant. A surprising and rewarding Vermont treat.

“I'm not in VT anymore!”

Sleek minimalist cafe and the BEST cup of coffee anywhere around. Okay, just a little attitude, but they have earned it...

“A Little Bakery, Full of Good Things To Eat”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

This used to be a laundry! The new owners designed and built a beautiful, quiet place, with a brick oven for baking. They serve excellent coffees, espresso to regular press coffee, to die for croissants, raison brioche, small cakes and rolls I cannot spell, homemade candies and truffles, and sandwiches, soup, and "flatbreads" - with potato, parsnip, endive, and other wonderful ingredients sliced on top. The charm of the space is only exceeded by the quality of the food and the charm of the owners, who are there every day. A must stop anytime you travel to Vergennes.

“Vergennes' Little Secret”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Strong lattes, great chic yet casual atmosphere, baked goods that go above and beyond your usual muffins.
