This being our first visit to the area, and in early November (and a bit chilly), and being a late Saturday morning, we were looking for a nice spot to have a coffee and lunch. Reviews of this spot on T.A. were promising and so we went for it. Generally speaking…it was really just average, and honestly, just a bit disappointing. Where we expected to find fresh foods, warm setting, and a nice Vermont "vibe", what we experienced was a luke warm dining experience that felt more like a cafeteria than it did a cafe. The chicken soup was canned and not that warm. The clam chowder was good, but also caned. The chicken salad sandwich on 9 grain bread was just slightly better than horrible - the bread was cold and dry, the chicken salad lacked flavor. The only item worthy of note was my daughter's spinach egg omelet, that was great.
I'm not sure how this restaurant achieved a 4 1/2 plus rating on T.A. I do not know. The bagels looked good, but we did not try. And maybe the Paninis were good. Maybe we just ordered the wrong items. Is this place worth another try? Maybe but not for us. Just not enough there to make us come back.
