This old-style country store is a really cool place to go for something to eat. We chose prepared salads that were scrumptious, and exactly what we were looking for! There were tables inside to eat them at, and we enjoyed looking around the store while we were there, too.

This place is one of the reasons I could move to Vermont tomorrow and never look back. We stumbled across it on our way back to the cabin we rented in South Royalton from hiking the ski slopes in Pekoe and had the most amazingly delicious kale lemonade and Turkey burgers stuffed with cranberries and onions. The service was excellent... More

After taking a wonderful 3.6 mile stroll around the Lower and Upper Michigan roads we stopped in the Original General Store for breakfast (at about 11:30). I had the Frittata and my partner had the French Toast (bacon, banana, pecans and Maple syrup). Both were absolutely delicious. The home fries with the frittata were perfect. To all that add great...

Stopped here by chance for lunch, staff were efficient and polite. The food we had was very good value for money and tasty. The menu was even understandable for us Brits ;) There is a small shop as part of the diner which enhances the experience.

We only stopped in to see what the World's Oldest General Store looked like - quite nice. A lot of character and local made goodies such as jams, jellies and syrup.

We've eaten here many times and always find it value for money and very welcoming of all ages and interests. You can eat in or take out all kinds of tasty food; breakfast has been the major draw for us – pancakes (recommended), bacon, eggs, a different, sticky & very good French toast, pretty much whatever you'd like, good coffee...

The food here is excellent. Given that you're getting all local and organic food it has very good pricing. The store is pretty darn cool with original building, fridge/freezers, etc. It has penny candy and a wine/cider cellar, and about any basic supply you could need. Speaking as a native Vermonter who has a deep set aversion to tourist traps... More
