Excellent sandwich shop conveniently located in the heart of downtown. Very friendly staff. Highly recommend for an unfussy bite in the heart of Stowe.

The reviews for this are incredible, so I'm thinking we stopped here on a bad day...? Because our experience was not great! We waited forever for our takeout order despite there only being a couple other customers. They kept making orders for new customers but appeared to forget about ours from awhile. The "Vermont fog" coffee drink was delicious. My boyfriend had a standard sandwich that he reported was decent. I got a grilled cheese sandwich and somehow it was the worst grilled cheese I've ever had in my life. I don't even know how that's possible. It was almost impressive.


This place offered a yummy and convenient breakfast near our hotel. It's not a dine-in place, but the tables in front overlooking the main street were a good place to sit and people watch. Sandwiches are also available.

Super delicious simple food. I had the breakfast sandwich with sausage and the Vermonter coffee. We also had oatmeal and fresh squeezed OJ (get this!) Everything was so delicious. The staff was nice and very talkative. Can't wait to come back!

Convenient cafe downtown with a huge variety of sandwiches made to order. We had a large party and received quick and friendly service. The food was delicious and priced fairly.

Cozy spot with great outdoor seating in the summer. My husband loved the breakfast sandwich and the homemade oatmeal with Vermont maple syrup was tasty. My daughters enjoyed the yummy blueberry muffins and ate every crumb!

The sandwiches are absolutely amazing! The Chai Tea Latte was delicious! There's a great store attached with locally made products and all kinds of interesting finds.

It’s rare to find a carefully crafted breakfast sandwich, but such a treat when you find it. Don’t let this cute little cafe fool you, there is a real chef in the kitchen cooking your food and it shows. I highly recommend having a bite here while you’re in Stowe, you won’t regret it.

We had a wonderful breakfast sandwich cooked perfectly, great coffee and a freshly baked maple walnut cookie for the road. Great food, great service and definitely a great place to eat. We seriously considered a creemee but we were too full and happy.

We stopped in for a bite as it was the only lunch place open on the street. I ordered a gluten free sandwich and was asked if it was an allergy. I told the server yes and then watched her prepare my sandwich right on top of the crumbs from the previous sandwich, which immediately contaminated my meal. When asked to remake it, she said "well it didn't say gluten free on the order," despite being the one who asked me if it was an allergy. The sandwich was extremely dry and the service was so unfriendly it ruined any positive opinion I would've had about the meal.

Unfortunately we had unfriendly employees. We walked in an hour before they closed and asked for a grilled cheese, she told us no because they already cleaned the grill and refused to make us one.

Cool spot to sit outside n have breakfast. Breakfast sandwich was totally huge and delicious! But the coffee whatever it was was so smooth and delicious! Staff was great to chat with. Definitely Recommend Menu could have more on it .....

2starts for current situation. No inside dinning...only outside which makes it difficult for rainy or windy day. Sandwiches all cold and wrapped. Expected the panini to be at least grilled but no still cold. This place for now not my cup of tea. Maybe just for a coffee grab and go for a walk kind of place.


Ate here for breakfast both days on our Stowe trip! It was really convenient that they took online orders. I loved the chocolate croissant and my husband enjoyed the egg sandwiches. The coffee was good, but a bit overpriced for what we got.
