I have to shout out for GESINE in Montpelier that sells the best cakes and coffee in VT. The standard of Gesine's baking is as good as some of the top food halls in London (Fortnum & Mason, Harrods etc.). Having lived in London most of my life, I feel I can honestly say that with conviction.
She has set up a cute store, similar to a French confectionary. The cakes vary from day to day, with pie day on a Friday. Mousses, tortes, and the best carrot cake I've ever tasted.
The coffee is of good quality. Excellent espresso, but have to watch how they make capps. - not always the best, sometime too milky, but they're getting there. Ask for it dry to be on the safe side. Very stylish, friendly and fun. If you're ever in VT, you must take a trip out on Elm St. Closed on Mon & Tues.
