Delicious croissants and pastries, especially the almond croissants which are large and very buttery! More like a NY style bakery - minimalist decor and delicious baked goods (plus lunch foods and strong coffee). Not inexpensive, but worth it.

A general store with a great beer and wine selection! They have terrific home cooked breakfast (think fresh egg/bacon on english muffin) and deli options. Good self serve coffee (free on Mondays), and a variety of food and pet items, including fresh fruits and vegetables and local food products. A couple of small cafe tables if you want to eat in. It also happens to be a full hardware store.

Go for their terrific croissants and specialty coffees. They also sell sandwiches and fresh breads baked on the premises daily. Live music sometimes. Stop on the way to Burlington or other places north of us - this place is just off the highway. Nice place to hang out with your computer or a good book.

A diner-type restaurant with all the breakfast-lunch-dinner options you'd expect like biscuits and gravy, stack of pancakes, unlimited coffee etc. Local place - always busy and filled with regulars. Counter and booths.

Lovely American-style steakhouse which also has Sunday brunch and a modified Saturday brunch (highly recommend both). Attached to Montpelier's local hotel, it has a polished feel with nice large booths and bar. Really tasty burgers and steak, good fries and salads. You get the idea :) Our favorite time to go is Saturday mornings for their all-you-can-eat breakfast which includes an omelet station, custom made waffles (with all the fixins including maple syrup, strawberries), fruit salad, bacon/sausage/homefries, coffee and toast - all for under $15. A steal.

Good to look at their website for current information regarding bus stops and timing. Not the most frequent service, but it's the only one we've got! There's a bus station at the park and ride at the end of our road - about a mile down.

Easy place to do your laundry in downtown Montpelier. They can also clean it for you if you'd prefer - drop off one day and pick up next day. Nice large machines that work fast and well and parking just next to the building - the earlier you get there the more of a chance you'll get a spot.

It's the state capitol building in Vermont - easy access and you can stop in and listen to legislators in session. Tours daily. Great photo spot. And a large lawn out front that sees everything from ice skating in the winter to frisbee and Fourth of July in the summer.
