My husband and I stopped in here for lunch and really enjoyed it. The restaurant is counter service with plenty of tables. After ordering, take a seat and the staff will bring the food to you. The staff are very pleasant and the menu is huge. The portions are also huge. I had the 1/2 sandwich and soup special, tuna... More

If you're down with the half-day thing, stop by for a cup of soup and a sammie, yummy food! Quick service, better prices than you get on the mountain!

Drinks and staff were good just needs something to bring it above the competition. Maybe music as too quiet. Almost like a store not a cafe.

Stopped by for lunch and was impressed with the expansive menu for such a small place. They offer soup, salads, sandwiches, wraps plus morning breakfast items. A special note...they close at 5 until season begins.

We tried their local Vermont ice cream and it was big enough to share for two people. The server engaged very well with us and even gave us a little tour advice. They also have pizza but it was too early to order. They only available at lunch time.

I have been to Java Baba's a few times. Every time I have the same experience. It's a busy little place with a lot going on. I feel like there's too much going on. The food is good. Quality ideas and well thought out menu. A little overwhelming though and very hard to decide because the menu is written on... More

We stopped in for breakfast on the way to an orchard. I had the Americano which was strong and piping hot. I also had a sausage egg and cheese on a hard roll. Soft hard roll and perfectly cooked egg, but the star was the cheese...VT sharp cheddar. Overall, perfect little stop in downtown.
