Cozy coffee shop. Very busy on a Sunday morning but we were still able to find seats. Good coffee. Friendly service.

Capital Grounds always seems to have a line, but it moves fast. There are lots of food and coffee selections and the seating is comfortable and fairly private.

Great coffee selection - from something robust to a greener coffee, there is something for every preference. The bakery does a delicious job on its pastries and getting a quick lunch is fast and delicious.

Great coffee shop with a fine selection of drinks and food. Fun staff and pleasant atmosphere. We walked here one morning and wished we had selected it as a breakfast spot. It looked cozy and the aromas were enticing.

Good espresso, could be a little hotter, and a little pricey. Nice having a couple tables with umbrellas on the street to sit & sip.

We stopped here on a Saturday for a quick lunch. My sandwich was very good and tasted fresh. We were able to find seating for four without a problem. The cafe is centrally located on the main drag on Montpelier.
