Black Cap Coffee
This one is truly going to “wow” you!
While this great local cafe has three different locations, Stowe is the original location, and even boasts its own bakery with a full array of treats.
Home of the famous Maple Latte, Black Cap Coffee sets the bar high for shops of its kind.
Aside from maple lattes, this local cafe creates tons of unique kinds of lattes that are sure to make you go back up for seconds.
My personal favorite is the Funky Monkey, which is a banana mocha iced coffee.
Aside from coffee, you can also get a freshly made pastry, delicious sandwich, or even a craft beer if you were feeling bold. Black Cap Coffee is the only coffee shop in Stowe with a selection of Vermont local beers!
Whether it’s to house some breakfast sandwiches or sip on a warm latte, Black Cap Coffee isn’t a place you want to miss.
PK Coffee isn’t just one of the greatest cafes in Stowe, it has a wonderful backstory too!
In World War 2, Pierre “Piet/Pietje” Ketellapper was a successful entrepreneur, with a passion for his coffee roasting and importing business in Belgium.
His niece, Katrina, after taking a coffee roasting class, decided to combine her love for coffee and her uncle’s passion into one, and thus in 2016, PK Coffee was opened in honor of her uncle.
PK Coffee is committed to using the freshest, most local ingredients to provide customers with top notch quality coffee.
Aside from coffee, this wonderful coffee shop also sells teas (matcha latte, anyone?) and non caffeinated beverages.
Their goal is to produce coffee that tastes just as good as it smells—maybe even better.
Do right by old Piet and give PK Coffee a try on your next trip to Stowe. You’ll be glad you did!
Woodland Baking & Coffee

Longtime Stowe resident and owner Matt truly views this shop as his home.
Matt runs this place with love. Not only is it evident by his mother frequently sipping a latte in the shop in the afternoon, or his kids enjoying breakfast before school, but it’s evident in each and every item that he makes.
Aside from the artisan coffee, his breakfast options and lunch are as delicious as can be.
From unique breakfast and lunch options, and never before seen baked goods, you’re in for a treat with whatever you decide to leave with.
