The Café at Middlebury Consignment

The Café at Middlebury Consignment is truly a hidden gem of a restaurant tucked inside a huge building filled with furniture & home accessories.

The Café is quaint and cozy, providing comfortable seating for around 60 people. There are also a few coveted seats at the over-sized granite preparation bar in the warm kitchen where lunchtime diners can watch the chefs at work and later attend cooking classes that are held at night.

Executive chefs Mike Trudeau and Mary Kravec are proud to cook and teach in the beautifully appointed kitchen and adjoining dining room. The outdoor patio by the waterfall and beautiful gardens is the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing lunch, or host an event.

Once you visit The Café at Middlebury Consignment, you will be back to explore the ever-changing menu and classes.
