After hearing lots of good things, I swung by and ordered a single scoop of homemade salted caramel ice cream in a cone. It was simply revelation in a cone. Amazing, full-bodied, just sweet-enough but not too much, with a wonderful texture. I sat outside, all alone, under the trellised patio, and watched the action on the Mad River: teens jumping off the covered bridge, kayakers paddling by, and tried with all my might to eat my ice cream very, very slowly.

I did not sample the baked goods, but did notice generously sized cupcakes decorated generously with buttercream, coffee cake with an amazing amount of strudel, bountiful muffins, and some of which were labeled gluten-free. A sturdy selection of coffee/cappuccino/espresso drinks, both hot and cold, rounded out the offerings in this cozy little bakery tucked behind the shops on Bridge Street.

Locals were saying good things...sorry, just didn't see it. An ok cup of coffee served in an unfriendly manner. Not much to pick from on the tiny counter, and what was there seemed expensive and uninviting. Even if that wasn't true... I felt put off by the salespersons brusque manner. Think it might have been the owner based on another persons conversation. I live in NYC...but hey, when I go to VT, I want to slow down and not feel like I'm on the big city.

Salted Caramel ice cream is pure heaven in a cone. I could'nt believe how good it was. The day I tried it was a very auspicious food day for me. Wow.
