      I am delighted to say that downtown Newport, Vermont, now has a place to meet a friend for lunch. Until recently the options for lunch on Main Street were a bar, a Chinese restaurant, one very upscale place, one greasy spoon and a teeny dive in the back of the health food store, Newport Natural Foods. The health food store’s food was great, and the staff wonderful and friendly, but the cramped tables and dark seedy bathroom restricted the patronage to an inner circle of hard core health food afficionados.

      Recently the health food store changed hands and the new owners knocked out

      a wall to create a large sunny new space with a tile floor, art on the brightly painted walls, big windows and a spiffy new bathroom. The new restaurant is called Montgomery’s Cafe and is entered either from the street or through Newport Natural Foods. It retains some of its old flavor with mix and match wooden booths and tables, thick china, and whimsical salt and pepper shakers.

      As in the previous incarnation of the cafe, patrons have a choice of sweets and muffins; breads, soups and salads; a hot and cold buffet which is weighed at checkout; cold sandwiches from the fridge; or made-to-order ...

      • sandwiches, with both meat and vegetarian options in every category. New on the menu are pannini, wine, espresso, and lattes. While the emphasis is still on healthful fare and fresh, natural or local ingredients, the new restaurant has a more mainstream feel. I can invite friends who are not specifically health-food oriented and know that we will have a delicious lunch in a nice atmosphere. Prices are reasonable, even for my budget, with a cup of soup and bread costing $3, a big mug of fair trade coffee for $1.75, or a large portion from the salad bar under $5.
        A full lunch with soup, sandwich or hot buffet, coffee and perhaps a sweet will run around $10.

        The service is friendly, and except during the lunch rush, is usually very fast. Montgomery’s has free WiFi and is welcoming to the little core of regulars who hang out for the afternoon working on laptops. Although they stop serving hot food and sandwiches at 2:00, coffee and pastries are available all afternoon. Once a month, on Friday evenings, the former owners, Steve and Maddie Crevoshay, make a guest appearance, serving a fabulous and demonstrating specific cooking techniques using natural and local ingredients.
