“Was expecting more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Locals were saying good things...sorry, just didn't see it. An ok cup of coffee served in an unfriendly manner. Not much to pick from on the tiny counter, and what was there seemed expensive and uninviting. Even if that wasn't true... I felt put off by the salespersons brusque manner. Think it might have been the owner based on another persons conversation. I live in NYC...but hey, when I go to VT, I want to slow down and not feel like I'm on the big city.

“Salted Caramel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Salted Caramel ice cream is pure heaven in a cone. I could'nt believe how good it was. The day I tried it was a very auspicious food day for me. Wow.

“The Sour Spot”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Kids walked by it on way to terrific restaurant around corner but was closed. So came back. 1. Super limited offerings...some lame muffins and coffee cake which tasted ok until you got to some strange shoe leather filling. 2. Staff seemed stressed and were not even close to friendly. We couldn't have been less impressed with food or service. Both my sons agree was a total dud.

“Go here, and be amazed at the ice cream sandwiches....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Home made brownies, with home made ice cream in between? What' not to like. The proprietor actually scoops the ice cream and makes it, so there's plenty of love and care behind what you're eating. =0)
