We stopped here on a Saturday for a quick lunch. My sandwich was very good and tasted fresh. We were able to find seating for four without a problem. The cafe is centrally located on the main drag on Montpelier.

This is a great place to sit and talk in a relaxed and warm atmosphere. The coffee and pastries are very good. It's always bustling with customers.

Good prices, GREAT coffee and breakfast. Free wi-fi for 90 minutes and refills are $1, paid on the honor system. Bright and happy place.

After being ignored at the North Branch Cafe, (see their review), we ate here. Delicious hot cider and sandwiches! A new favorite place in Montpelier!
