There's a wonderful cafe full of gluten-free treats in downtown Bennington, Vermont. Nova Mae Cafe, located at 512 Main Street, is named after owner Kim Post's young daughter, and is a delightful way to refuel when you are visiting this vibrant college town. You can get soups, salads and sandwiches (I forgot to ask if they carry GF bread), coffee, tea and....
a whole shelf full of gluten-free baked goods in their bakery case. I saw scones, pumpkin pie, brownies and two cute little iced apple breads that I snapped up for Dan. What a score!
Kim is the effervescent owner/baker/chef at the Nova Mae Cafe, helped by her adorable mom when I was there. Next door to the cafe at 514 she also runs Junque, which is one of the coolest shops for funky home furnishings, vintage linens, artsy cards, handcrafted clothing and other kinds of gifts. I have found some great items for our home and to adorn the shelves of our used bookstore at Junque over the past several years, including some heavy chicken bookends, a vintage avocado colored tablecloth to match my Crispy Kitchen, hand embroidered napkins and table runners and fun cards.
For hours and more information about Nova Mae Cafe you can call them at (802) 447-9490. See you there!
