Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of new American cuisine, wine, and beer at Café Gutenberg on East Main Street.
The culinary artists at Café Gutenberg paint a tasty menu of New American cuisine, complimented by imported and domestic wines and beers. Overcome a flavor drought with an appetizer of hand-cut Vermont cheddar frites served with succulent Vermont cheddar gravy ($5.75). Or warm up the palate with braised pork or tofu sliders ($6.75), which are easier to hit than beef curveballs. While deliberating whether to order the grilled bratwurst ($12) or the flat iron steak ($14), sip a tasty Belgian beer, such as the Duvel Strong Golden Ale ($9), or a refreshing domestic brew, such as the Roxy Rolles Amber Ale ($4) from the Green Mountain State. Early-state-of-mind diners can eggstatically feast on quiche ($7.95), a highlight of the all-day brunch menu.
Café Gutenberg's myriad windows invite torrents of sunlight, in addition to rocks thrown by confused lovelorn high school students from teen movies. Bathe in the sun's warm hug while indulging taste buds with an organic grape-derived Argentinean white wine ($6), which sparkles with a pink hue. Or try the Zaca Mesa Cuvee from California, which, like many stuffed animals, is infused with blueberries.
- Very quaint bookstore / coffee shop / hangout / restaurant / gathering space / bakery with European influence. The brunch menu had me indecisive, it all looked so good. – tammy, Urbanspoon
- I love this place and am addicted to the pastries here, especially the fruit-filled turnovers. Add a nice cup of Illy coffee and I can relax and read the morning paper, pretending I'm in a Vienna coffeehouse. – Ginger W., Yelp
