“Not the best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

My husband and I were looking for some good local coffee and we saw this little shop and decided to stop in. Perhaps it was a bad time because a rowdy family was already inside that had apparently placed a large order.
It took us a few minutes to figure out what we wanted to order because the coffee syrup selection was hidden behind a giant rack. We finally saw some menus laying out and had just picked them up when we were asked what we wanted to order. When we needed a minute the one gentleman working said he had to get back to the grill. He left us standing at the front for almost 10 minutes. Understandable though, he was dealing with a big order and he was the only one working.
When we finally placed our order (flavored lattes) he used the same amount of syrup for two different sized coffees and overcharged us for both. He seemed annoyed to even be waiting on us and overall was not friendly nor did he apologize for the long wait. To top it off, the coffees tasted terrible! There was no sleeve to put them in, the cups were insanely hot and mine spilled all over the counter when he gave it to me.
My husband and I are big proponents of supporting local businesses but this one was not a good experience. At the prices we paid, I expected better. I'm afraid Starbucks has a major advantage over this place. We won't be back.

Great selection of coffee, my favorite was the organic Peruvian blend. Very friendly cozy environment. Didn't eat, but my kids had delicious smoothies. Will definitely return next time we are in town!!

“Coffee Lover's Dream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

For the best espresso and coffee drinks in Southern Vt, come to this ski neighborhood cafe.
It's close to Mount Snow, on rt. 100, in the Dover Center, near the Silo. Had been coming to the area for years, finding sub par coffee- here you'll find fresh roast, lattes, and favorites like chai, soy and almond milk no problem.
Try the Italian panini, or a quick lunch, or the house favorites, breakfast sandwiches.
