Guess this should get an award for one of the most unusual bakery/restaurant names... This is a very casual place. It looks more like a bakery than a restaurant. When you 1st walk in, there are display cases of bakery goods on the left. Opposite on the right side are 4 booths with mismatched tables, appearing almost as an afterthought to the bakery. They offer a variety of soups. Their lunch sandwiches are all made with homemade bread, and they cook all their meats in-house. I had a Reuben, which came with a pickle, on black Russian bread. You could tell the corned beef & bread were homemade. My sandwich though could have been stepped up a notch with perhaps a little side of coleslaw or a few potato chips. My husband ordered a chicken sandwich that contained moist pieces of cooked chicken with nice greens. It had been slathered though with so much spicy Dijon mustard that it overpowered the taste of the sandwich & homemade bread. He tried to wipe the mustard off with a napkin but it didn't help much. My husband though didn't return it... Later, I did mention to the owner that I loved my sandwich but my husband had a problem with the amount of spicy mustard on his. She said she had gotten some new mustard & wished he'd told her earlier. She was friendly, apologized, & offered us a free dessert! She chose the restaurant name as her father is Russian, & initially she'd opened the bakery with one of her daughters. Although she's running it now with her husband, other family members are working there as well. Lastly, just FYI, there is an odd single unisex restroom down a long hallway, outside of the restaurant. If I lived in Bennington, I'd probably become a regular for the delicious sandwiches on homemade bread!
