Visited while in Stowe on vacation. Coffee and pastries were very good. Shop was very comfortable but the staff was not very friendly.

“Good coffee, staff isn't the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Coffee: The coffee is pretty decent. I went 2-3 times while there and my drinks were always delicious.

Staff: Unless you're a local, you pretty much don't exist. They don't say hello, they don't ask if they can help you with something, they don't ask for your money, they pretty much stare at you and say nothing. Pretty awkward and kinda rude.

Shop: It's a cozy place with a decent atmosphere. I sat on the porch most of the time.

Quickness: Plan on waiting a little bit unless you're the only one in there.

“Not good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Atmosphere is off, the staff is awkward and doesn't seem to know what they are doing, and the food is awful.

“Best coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Coffee is a bit hit and miss when it comes to taste. Here you can have it as you want it. I like mine like I can get in Europe and here it is great. Add in the wonderful pastries and I am transported back to a wonderful place. The baristas have the attitude I have come to expect in Stowe but these guys are tops when it comes to service.

“Hope you're not in a rush...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

The staff at Black Cap cannot keep up the pace & it's quite frustrating when you're on your way to work & you're stuck in line for 20 minutes waiting. The attitude of the staff is pretty lukewarm too which makes it an even more bitter pill to swallow.

Last gripe; no vegetarian sandwiches. In 2014 it's pretty unusual to not even offer one veg option. I guess I wouldn't dare to request vegan baked goods. Perhaps someday Stowe will get on board with Burlington until then I'll keep driving 45 minutes north for most of my dining.
