I don't get to Vergennes that often, but this place is a must. This last time I had a cauliflower scone and a cardamom bun. I had never even heard of a cauliflower scone and now I want to drive back to Vergennes and get another. The cardamom bun was a marvel of distinct spices and textures. Wow. It was... More

When others have complained of the rudeness and disdain of the owners, I've defended VL: "no, the owners are just introverts, shy; their main interest is making and serving good food. They are actually kind. It's worth it! Be cool." Well, it ISN'T WORTH IT! Drove down on on a lovely Saturday evening set to try out the VL experience... More

Admired for terrific coffee, bread, and savory goodies the Laundry now offers dinner. But there’s no real entrée, rather a tapas type menu, leaning on fish at present. The vibe is creativity: utensils, bread holders and the like feel curated, the food plays with creations like “burnt eggplant with hot pepper cream,” and “puy lentils, cucumber, sorrel, celery, dandelions.” Ocean...

They have just opened for dinner. Don't take reservations but worth trying to get a table Excellent FRENCH restaurant and very good service. Nice selection of wines and moderately priced menu

The Laundry now offers dinner, with a wine bar. I had a delicious black bass. A wonderful menu unlike many conventional restaurants. I highly recommend.

Nice little coffee shop/ bakery in the quaint town of Vergennes. Brews a good cup of espresso or joe, whatever your pleasure, and has some unique treats to choose from to accompany it. Whenever I go there I feel a bit fancy, and have never been disappointed except when I've rolled up to find it randomly closed. Check the hours!... More

We were staying nearby at Basin Harbor Club and tried this nearby bakery. The quality and creativity of this bakery had me hooked immediately. They rightly sell out of many of the morning baked items quickly...don't go late. Espresso and regular coffee drinks also heavenly and served French style in large au lait style cups. My favorites were the cardamom... More

Background: While we often pick up Vergennes Laundry bread, pastries & cold brewed coffee at the Shelburne Farmers Market, we recently had an opportunity to stop by Vergennes Laundry on a trip back to our home in Vermont. Verdict: Having enjoyed cafes all over Europe, this is a world class bakery and cafe! We look forward to enjoying the Vergennes... More

The Vergennes Laundry feels like a boulangerie/patisserie. Their coffees, breads and pastries are unexpected for a VT Rte 7 small town. The line for service can rapidly exceed their modest seating capacity, and everyone is smiling. It is another example of why it is nice to stray from the nearby Queen City of Burlington. A favorite: their meticulously prepared soft-boiled... More

This little gem in the smallest city is worth the drive -- just make sure that they aren't on vacation and that it is Thursday through Sunday.
