We don’t just bake four or five different kinds of bread and call ourselves bread bakers. We bake more than 25 organic varieties. Locals know that our breads sell out, so they arrive early, or call ahead. See our Menu/Ordering page for list of breads and ordering procedures.
Classic croissants, to hard to find regional specialties like Breton Kouign-amann. Seasonal muffins, scones, cookies, cakes. You have to go to New York City to find this kind of small batch quality and craft.
Our soups are either vegetarian or vegan, and are always small batch. We vary the flavors every few weeks, to make use of seasonal produce. Look for bowls of soup on our menu, and quarts to go. Quiche are made and baked daily, and are available with or without crust. Large quiche are available by Special Order.
We love our bread, but sometimes we crave greens too. Our salads are organic, hand chopped and made each morning: Kale + Quinoa; Herbed Tuna; Curry Chicken; Classic Egg salad. They are so popular, that we are even bottle our salad dressings!
We bake our bread in the morning, then make sandwiches on it until the bread runs out. What we put in our sandwiches matters too: We roast our own organic chicken, make our own ailoi and sauces, and use only organic eggs for our breakfast sandwiches. Each is made while you wait.
Just because you are short on time, does not mean you have to sacrifice flavor, quality and nutrition. We stock our fridge each morning with hand-chopped organic salads and fresh squeezed juices. Our bench has wholesome snacks like granola and breakfast bars to keep you moving.
Neighbors who work in The City know Stumptown. The taste is smooth and balanced. Exceptional. The kind of coffee when you take a sip, you say to your friend, “Oh you have to try this.” Stumptown has a roastery in Redhook so when those beans come down Danbury Road they are fresh out of the roaster… 48 hours fresh. Stumptown routinely inspects and services our equipment, and trains our baristas in NYC at their West Village training center.
We are proud to pour Simpson & Vail one of the oldest tea companies in the USA, headquartered just up the road in Brookfield. We serve our tea by the cup, but also by the pot.
A loyal British customer turned us onto PG Tips so we can offer "Builders Tea" for our friends who are living/working on this side of the pond.
Lots of people buy organic milk for their families at home because it has a fresh flavor and creaminess but too often coffee shops cut corners and pour unimpressive commercial milk into their lattes. Not at Ross. We are obsessed with our Arethusa milk and their “girls” even going to visit them in Litchfield. We also carry their chocolate milk (athelets’ favorite) and egg nog in the winter.
