I had breakfast and lunch there this week & I would be remiss if I did not give a shout out to the cook. The kale and egg scramble was killer. Eggs were cracked, great tasting & a healthy choice. For lunch, I had smoked turkey, brie and farm stand plums on a baquette. What a sandwich and I'm from... More

This place is really awesome! After a long bike ride, we went in for some lunch and we weren't disappointed. They had ample options for vegetarians - salads, veggie wraps, veggie sandwiches. Delicious coffee, too. Also a good place to pick up souvenirs and memorabilia or presents for the family and friends back home. Really loved this place - the... More

Thanks to the new ownership who used to be a head chef in a celebrated NYC restaurant, the menu has received a serious upgrade and is the star of the show. I look forward to their plans to open a restaurant in the back of the store and see the head chef's creativity fully unleashed.

Excellent eggs and friendly service, we were treated like locals for a fabulous midday meal. Great place to pick up provisions -- healthy and locally-made options and great beer and wine selection.

I ate at the General Store this last weekend and the food was DELICIOUS - I had an amazing turkey sandwich for lunch one day, and the maple french toast for breakfast the next day. I highly recommend both items

Stopped on the way to Barre Vt. Great little general store with atmosphere and deli. Very friendly staff that goes out of their way to help you. I would definitely recommend it to any one in the area. Worth the stop!

I have been coming here for a year since we bought a place near here. Not only does it have all the essentials - local farm eggs, dairy and meat also. Staff are super friendly, restaurant food with best burger on Vermont / East Coast / anywhere, breakfast, pizza - and all of it in a charming and very traditional... More

We stopped in Pittsfield for lunch on our way to Stowe. I had gazpacho soup and a veggie panini. My husband had a sandwich. (I was so busy eating mine that I didn't even ask what he was eating). We both commented on how fresh everything tasted! It's really delicious. The country store goodies were a nice mix of necessities... More

One of the best general stores we've been to in Vermont (and we've been to a lot!) From penny candy to an awesome wine cellar and selection to delicious banana pancakes and vegetable juices, this is a great spot in the quaint town of Pittsfield. A must stop when you're passing through.
