Description: Carol's Hungry Mind Café's motto is "Coffee Conversation Community" You get great coffee, lattes, teas, smoothies, as well as sandwiches Panini scones, etc. You also get to meet people. The tables are mostly small and close together so starting up a conversation is easy and happens often. With Middlebury being both a college town and a tourist stop the people there could be local or from the other side of the world. You never know

“Very Good Coffee Shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Carol's is a quirky, artsy, and comfortable Middlebury gathering place that attracts a very diverse clientele. The coffee is excellent and the food is very good. They are a little slow on refilling the coffee and water carafes, and the place could use a little updating.

“Great atmosphere, okay food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2013

This is probably the most popular cafe in Middlebury. They've got free internet, comfortable seating, and very nice people. The food isn't all that special, though, and the prices don't reflect this (i.e. they're too high).
