Now that the Irene-ravaged roads have been reopened, I was finally able to visit Seasoned Books and Bakery. While I am not much of a reader (undergrad and grad ruined that for me), I LOVE coffee and baked goods. So, I ordered a hot apple cider and my other half ordered a mocha and we were both VERY happy with our selections. We arrived late and, as a result, the lunch offerings were slim. So, we enjoyed an oatmeal cookie instead. They offer a vast array of baked goods, including bread. I look forward to visiting again.
This spot is the kind of fun, funky, hippie-esque place that supports organic food, local farmers and artisans, and provides food and literature to increase your knowledge of the local Vermont culture and surroundings, , whether via your tastebuds, eyes, or intellect. Think of it as the more earthy, grass roots version of the Warren Store, minus the wine, tiny packaged goodies, and expensive clothing shop upstairs. The coffee I had was fine (but did not have a mocha), in contrast to the previous review. All the bread and foodstuffs served there is made on the premises, including the sesame bagel I happily consumed in a tasty breakfast egg, cheese and bacon sandwich. The place seems strongly based on the local community and the semi retirement aged folks at the table next to me were garrulous on the subject of the Internet, Twitter and businesses in VT and included me in their conversations. Makes me wish my regular VT travel route passed this way more often than it does!
An absolute most stop on your way through Rochester. Rochester and this bakery / bookstore serve each other well and very much help define the definition of small town Vermont. Food is always fresh and the special changes daily. Nothing can be found in the bakery that wasn't made with in a stones throw of the counter.
