Loved the atmosphere here. Not cramped but some decent size and just the right decor and feeling. Coffee was good. Pastry was pretty good too. Good place to stop in a small town!

Located on south street, downtown Bennington, VT. We stumbled upon this cafe while walking the downtown. Staff was friendly. Pastries were excellent along with our cappuccino. Free Wi-Fi is a bonus since cell and data service can be spotty.

Stopped here on a Saturday evening going through town. Friendly staff and fresh eats - even at the end of the day. Nice change from fast food and tasty parries to boot!

I wound up here when I discovered the Brown Cow Cafe was closed Sundays. The coffee and bagels were good, and the atmosphere was fine.

Fantastic place. Great home made breads, superb sandwiches, coffee galore including Breve (my new favorite). Friendly staff and hipster ambiance. Definitely a highly recommended place to eat, drink and meet friends.

Coffee and light breakfast or bakery treats. I had a bagel sandwich one morning and it was great. My latte was nicely served in a big mug and I was able to get soy milk which was a must for me. Great relaxed atmosphere.
