We've been to Kismet twice and both of us, along with the people at the next table, were thrilled by the food. I especially like the friendly wait staff and somewhat Montpelier-funky atmosphere. Relaxing place to eat.

Kismet is the best brunch I have ever had. My favorites are the steak and eggs and carpaccio Benedict, but I imagine every menu item is amazing . They also have awesome Bloody Mary's. Go forth and brunch happy!
