"Come Up for Air!" to Lotus Mountain Retreat


Lotus Café and Kombucha Bar

A Unique Dining Experience

Nourish yourself with all-organic vegan foods, fresh and locally-sourced whenever possible. We are committed to healthy eating. Fortunately, organic foods taste better too!

Everything we serve is ALWAYS ORGANIC, and ALWAYS VEGAN! Even the coffee, sweetener and cream is organic and vegan. The local-brewed craft kombucha too is organic and vegan. And strangely enough, not all maple syrup is vegan (ask us why) even if you can find organic, but ours is both!

Lotus Cafe makes breakfast available for lodging guests from 9 - 10 AM. It's usually ancient grains oatmeal hot porridge with cinnamon, raisins, pecans and fruit, with coconut cream and maple syrup on the side. Ask if we are making smoothies that day. $10 each.

Dinner at 7 or 7:30 PM. Reservations are required before 5 PM the same day because everything is created fresh in-house. From salad dressings to soups and more. Ask for availability if you have needs outside of these times.

Dinner entree is usually $12 per person. 

Salad $6, desserts $1-6.

Please let our cooks know if you have special dietary needs. Gluten-free alternatives are typically available.

Reserve your dinner by calling us at (802) 434 - 6500, or on check-in if before 5 PM.

Organic coffee from Vermont Coffee company and a selection of organic teas and herbal blends are always complementary for lodging and day spa guests. Dining guests, please inquire on pricing.

We have a refrigerator near the tea service area with nut-milk cream for your coffee. You can also store small quantities of personal food in there.

Our beverage bar offers several varieties of local, on-tap organic kombucha from a local Vermont craft brewer, KIS Kombucha www.kiskombucha.com.

KIS Kombucha (Keep It Simple!) began as an experiment in Andras’s kitchen.  An avid kombucha drinker, he was curious to see if he could create a light and refreshing kombucha that would be approachable by everyone while still retaining the myriad health benefits so well known to kombucha.

He started by brewing kombucha for the local health food store and vending at farmers’ markets.  The demand was clear and the feedback was so positive, that soon KIS was growing.  You will know why when you come by and taste these world-class kombuchas!
