The food is absolutely delicious at this little cafe. The chef (Zach) should be working at some fancy, big city restaurant (though I'm glad he's not). The food was all natural and came from the local area. The art is a nice touch but the food is the the reason to go. The young lady serving us was excellent and... More

A bit out of the way, but worth the trip. High quality artisan shop with jewelry, paintings, wood work, fiber art, yarns and MUCH more. AND, Zach's Cafe within for a nice lunch. Really cozy place to find a perfect, special gift and enjoy a little R&R as well. Go with a friend. You won't be sorry!

We stopped for lunch after touring the island, and it was a delightful experience. Since it was too chilly to sit inside, we were seated in a cozy room, surrounded by local artists' wares. The food was delicious, including local wines, service was top drawer, and we enjoyed perusing the art work. They showcase many unique items, including blankets made... More

Went for lunch today for the first time. I live nearby so I'm mad at myself for waiting so long to get there. I won't wait too long to go back. Lunch was great! Super "grilled cheese deluxe" sandwich. So big, I saved half for dinner. Service was friendly and efficient. And, the artworks themselves are fun to peruse. This... More

We arrived at the tail end of lunch -- and some items were sold out, but what we ordered was really good. Well-seasoned and SO fresh. The service was warm and friendly but efficient. Great gallery to eat in.

Ellen and Jim have so many beautiful pieces of artwork and craft that it is good to plan to spend some time wandering and enjoying the talent of all the different artists' work that they have displayed. And I pretty much cannot leave without gifts for others...and for myself!

Wow - local art and local ingredients! Not only great lunch and dinner options but the perfect spot to browse for high quality, Vermont made artwork and crafts. And they have some cute llamas for the kids to enjoy. If you've never been up this way the Champlain Islands really are the jewels of Vermont.

This is an outstanding small art gallery/store and cafe. It is located at the top of a gentle tiny hill in a very peaceful rural setting on Route 2. The entire place whispers "Relax. Unwind. Enjoy". Take your time. Stroll through the art gallery/store and browse among the paintings, weavings, multiple crafts, etc. Yes, they are pricey, but beautifully made... More

We stopped by Grand Isle Art Works during a drive through the islands not realizing it was closed. The very kind owner welcomed us in for a minute anyway, and we were delighted to a find a charming and affordable place to purchase locally made artisan gifts. The owner was friendly and patient and gave us some nice tips regarding... More

Incredible creative and original artwork. Very expensive not aimed at locals, meant for tourists to spend that amount of money.
