We stumbled upon this excellent place while traveling across Vermont. The owner and staff were wonderful talking about the food and the history of the place. Sandwiches and salads are absolutely fabulous and the pastries are very special and delicious. Be sure to stop -...More

Knowledgable owner and delicious pastry, pleasant staff and they all work hard. A little pricey but if you want to splurge, do it here.

We stopped in just for coffee and a bit of sweet, but were enticed to sample empanadas and spanakopita by owner/chef Bill Tecosky, who is just a gem of a man. Disregard the reviews that call him weird or eccentric - he was delightful. We...More

We stopped for a coffee, and were treated to excellent pastries served up by the very humorous and highly entertaining owner, Bill. He was rightly proud of his sweet and savoury pastries, and with his mocking and self-deprecating non-stop good humour, lightened our day, added...More

There are two things that make this place a destination: the pastries and the proprietor. The meal and dessert pastries are all excellent, and served with salad and coffee make a great lunch. The proprietor is quite the showman and sells the day's fresh bakes...More

We stopped here for the desserts and ended up eating lunch. We all had something different, and the empanadas were the winner. The salads were tasty and of course the desserts were great. Bill is the own/waiter/comedian/pastry consultant and makes the experience great!
