Excellent Home Cooking!

Great lunch place, while travelling the Vermont byways. All sorts of options available to custom-build your own favourite lunch! Also a shop, offering many local delicacies - Apple Butter, Maple Syrup etc etc. Very efficient and friendly staff.

We loved this place, I had the special ... heirloom tomatoes on flatbread with argula, bacon and not sure what else. The flavors were wonderful.

Great sandwiches. Ate outside on a beautiful day. Just a nice, clean and friendly place. Good choice for a snack as the Grafton Inn doesn't offer lunch.

First and foremost, take the chef's recommendation. This is a small café with a limited menu. Based upon the chef / cashier recommended, I had the BLT on white bread (homemade) and enjoyed the sandwich immensely.

We found the sandwiches to be very tasty and reasonably priced. This was surprising since there is only one place to eat lunch and Grafton is a tourist mecca. I would recommend it even if it wasn't the only spot in town.

It was the only option for lunch in town. The sandwiches were good, the coffee too, the salads were tasteless and boring.

As the only place to get lunch in Grafton, Mack's Place does a pretty good business. The sandwiches are good. We had a tomato cheese soup that was very interesting. The staff is friendly.

We had grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato cheese soup. Can't get enough of the Grafton Cheddar! Very good iced tea. Sat outside in a pretty garden. Loved it. Yum!!
