Koffee Kup Bakery

Website

Welcome to Koffee Kup Bakery

Back in 1940, when Koffee Kup Bakery was founded in Burlington, we hand-made delicious donuts, then delivered them by bicycle, carrying on the family tradition from Troy Vermont and Quebec. Over 70 years later, we continue to deliver what we believe are the finest bakery products available in the market today.  The original bakery has grown to a full line of specialty rolls, breads and donuts. The bicycle route has grown to dozens of trucks that cover much of New England and Upstate New York, keeping the items fresh daily.

What is the Koffee Kup secret? Just good long lasting family values and old fashion baking pride. We create our donuts from the most wholesome ingredients, then rush them to the markets near you while they are still warm. We know you will enjoy the scrumptious just baked taste of our old fashioned donuts. When you come back for more, please look for some of our exciting new varieties. Our original tasty Cruller and Buttermilk donuts have been our signature items since day one, and we hope you will love the irresistibility of our Chocolate, Glazed, Jelly, or Seasonal Favorite donuts.

Green Mountain Flour

Website

Green Mountain Flour is the product of Zach Stremlau's 24 years of baking experience, our love for New England's working landscape and a passion for rebuilding the local grain economy.

While there are many wonderful artisan bakeries, what distinguishes Green Mountain Flour is that we mill local grain. This is the focus of all our products from flour and pancake mixes to bread and pizza - in the prepared food aisle, in school lunches and from our mobile wood-fired pizza oven. In focusing on sourcing grain locally, Green Mountain Flour has its eye set on adding to the viability of small, diversified New England farms and reconnecting the dots between food and land.

Bringing back "the story of bread" as it travels from local field and farm to local table harkens back to our New England roots in the small villages of Europe and the United Kingdom where the farmer's knew the miller, the miller milled with stone and the baker baked with fire. This romantic link to our cultural heritage is part of our mission.

Tourterelle Inn, Dining & Events

Website

In the late nineties, a beautiful event planner from Brittany met a young, American chef from New York. Before long they married and their union produced first a daughter and then a culinary revolution in Brooklyn, New York. Locals flocked to Loulou, their first French bistro, as much for chef Bill's lusty cuisine, as Christine's gracious charm. Before long, Loulou beget Cocotte, another French eatery that drew crowds. Other chefs followed them, lining the streets near the Snells' restaurants with all manner of eateries.

The couple turned their sights on a life-long dream: to own an inn and restaurant in Vermont. The Snells purchased the well-regarded Roland's Place in New Haven, Vermont in July 2009, changing its name to Tourterelle to reflect its romantic theme as a serene restaurant, inn, and venue for special occasions.
