Good, fresh food. Great coffee. Really nice people. Cozy, charismatic environment. Big case full of pastries, sandwiches to order, and a book shop to boot. Outside seating too.

Read a book while you eat. Buy it when you're done. Meals are great as are drinks and pastries. Highly recommended by locals and travelers alike.

Loved our stop for breakfast. Super nice and friendly folks...funky clutter in an old house filled with wonderful books and art...varied menu. We started to leave noting the crowded nature of leaf-peepers like us seeking food, but a local leaving said, "Stay...its worth the wait!"...More

Being a native Vermonter I understand how busy this time of year is in VT but Sandy's kept it together while being totally busy inside. We all had great meals, service with a smile. So many good things to choose from, made it hard but...More
