Rochester Cafe Porch Expansion Project

We are very excited to be expanding the porch on the south side of our building. Landis Architects|Builders have been very busy these last few months designing the perfect porch to provide even more outdoor seating for our customers this summer and beyond!

Here are some renderings of what’s to come:

Honoring the original design of the front porch and existing architectural details were very important during the design process.

Our new porch will more than double the outdoor seats we currently have available!

A new ramp will offer increased accessibility to all our customers who prefer, or require, a more gradual entrance over a set of steps

For updates on this project and more, be sure to subscribe to our email newsletter.

Our Barista Favorites

Over the years, The Rochester Cafe and Country Store has created a truly elevated barista menu.  We pride ourselves on providing the freshest coffee and espresso drinks in the area. Our recent collaboration with Uncommon Coffee has solidified our status as a superior quality coffee shop! With ethically sourced, genuinely small batch, fresh roasted coffee beans being delivered each week for us to grind, brew and serve to you as coffees, espressos, lattes, and cappuccinos, you might have a hard time choosing! Here are a few of our best selling barista beverages to get you started! 

Green Mountain Latte :

The traditional latte we all love, but make it Vermont-y! Voila…. The Green Mountain Latte: a double shot of espresso, blended with steamed milk, a single pump of pure Vermont Maple syrup and topped with a perfect little peak of whipped cream! There is no denying this is one of our most loved barista specialties.

Plain n’ Simple Cappuccino:

With our coffee beans roasted the very same week we serve them, a simple cappuccino might be all you need; a single or a double shot of espresso, milk steamed to perfection, all layered in the perfect ⅓, ⅓, ⅓ proportions, a simple and delicious delight!

Mochaccino

Take a nostalgic sip back to your childhood with a twist on the classic chocolate milk; a double shot of espresso and a double pump of chocolate syrup blended with steamed milk. You might need to order one of our grilled cheeses and hop on a swing-set to create a serious nostalgic childhood trifecta!

The Cafe Red or Black Eye:

A beast worth mentioning; the Cafe Red Eye is a freshly brewed cup of Uncommon Coffee, topped with a single shot of espresso. Looking for a first class upgrade? Try the Cafe Black Eye! A freshly brewed cup of Uncommon Coffee topped with a double shot of espresso; fasten your seatbelt please!

All of our barista specialties are made to order and we happily offer many options with all selections such as; almond milk, soy milk, skim milk, try them iced, with a single, double or triple shot, hold the whipped cream, add whipped cream, add a dusting of nutmeg, cinnamon or cocoa. We’re here to serve you a beverage that leaves you with a smile after every sip!

Our entire barista menu is available to order online, over the phone at 802-767-4302 or at our take out window.
