For instance, you could have Vermont Artisan tea, a piece of potato and garlic-scape quiche, and a gooey maple bun. Or, you could get a sausage, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich and a cappuccino. Or, if you're in a hurry, you can grab a container of soup (with housemade stock) and a salad such as fire-roasted gazpacho or sesame noodles from the cooler. Any of these combinations will run you less than $12.
But my favorite meal on a "dime" is the sandwich, made on homemade baguette or a plain or seeded roll. For protein, eaters can choose hummus or local turkey, ham or cheddar. You can also mix-and-match to your heart's desire. I get mine with both meats and cheese, plus lettuce, onions, housemade pickles, Sriracha mayo, mustard and sprinkles of salt and pepper. It's hard to beat at $7.50.
