A cold wet day in Montpelier and this place hit the spot with homemade hot chocolate with homemade whipped cream! Very nice and friendly staff who accommodated our kids with a "cooler" version of the hot chocolate. Great atmosphere, all decked out with art for Halloween :)

Driving across the state of Vermont from New Hampshire on a tour of New England and Canada, we stopped in Montpelier to see the state capital. But first we wanted a snack so we stopped at Capitol Grounds (cafe and coffee shop) and ordered their vegetarian chili. It was DELICIOUS!!!! In fact, it was so good, we ordered more to... More

Quaint coffee shop located in the heart of downtown Montpelier. Excellent coffee. All beans roasted on site and ground on site. Outstanding breakfast sandwiches.

Enjoyed a dark roast coffee and blueberry muffin; debated (no pun intended) on whether or not to buy a Bernie Sanders tee shirt. Seemed to be a younger type crowd. Enjoyable, would have been better if it had been cleaner !

Quaint downtown atmosphere. Counter service sandwiches, coffees, and specialty drinks. Croissants, both plain and filled, quiche, salads, fresh baked goods. Delicious coffee fragrance. Order at the counter for take out of dining in. Prepared food is delivered in less than ten minutes. We were very pleased with the specialty sandwiches we ordered. A good choice for breakfast sandwiches and other... More

Best latte I experienced on my trip throughout Vermont. I can see why Bernie puts his name and face on their beans & Tshirts.

Stopped in to share a sandwich on a drive through town and the sandwich was excellent! Wife is a Starbucks-a-Holick from Southern California and raved about the coffee.

One of my favorite places to get some coffee or tea and crank out work on the laptop. At times it's very busy and parking isn't always easy, but both are reflective of Montpelier and the popularity of the place. Always friendly staff.

So there's a morning routine. We all have them. I walk here get a cup to go then head for work. A very pleasant part of my day. I have to avoid all the tempting pastry choices because chill Gelato is across the street and I have to monitor my calories.

Absolutely the BEST Iced Coffee's I had ever had. It was bliss for your taste buds. In Florida I am an Avid Starbucks drinker and this Coffee tops the charts Higher than Starbucks. They are all natural and the cups for any cold beverage are made out of cornstarch so they are biodegradable. Don't leave the cold cups in your... More
