Our Middlesex Cafe and Store

Whether it’s coffee and a pastry or full breakfast in the morning; soup, salad and a sandwich for lunch; or picking up a loaf of bread, some local cheese, and your favorite beverage for your evening, we’ve got you covered!

In the fall of 2019 we opened our new kitchen. This allows us to expand our menu options and serve you more quickly.

Our café is located at historic Camp Meade at the intersections of Vermont Routes 2, 100B, and US Interstate 89. We serve hot and cold drinks and have a wide range of breakfast and lunch items on the menu.

Travelers and locals alike are welcomed daily for breakfast, snacks, coffee, to enjoy here or take on the road, and Vermont provisions. We pride ourselves in providing a comfortable meeting place for friends, family, and businesses in central Vermont.

Like our breads, Red Hen pastries are made from simple, uncomplicated ingredients—an approach that emphasizes the textures and flavors that come from proper fermentation and handling from mixing bowl to oven.

Provisions and Specialty Items

A retail store inside a cafe inside a bakery - what more could you ask for?

You can make us a stop on your food tour of Vermont! We carry a selection of great Vermont foods.  You'll find things like Lazy Lady and Jasper Hill cheeses, Kombucha, local meats, and a whole lot more.
