Trap Door Bakehouse & Cafe offers a wide selection of freshly made pastries, breakfast choices as well as paninis, Greek food, and other lunch and take away dinner options. We also provide for catered party, specialty birthday and wedding cake. We are more than happy to provide gluten free and vegan options as well. Our patio view is by far the best in Quechee, now showcasing the newly rebuilt covered bridge.
