Good lunch spot

We stopped at Dylan's for lunch on a way to Canada. The decision was based purely on Yelp reviews and we were not disappointed. Funcky old port office building but we liked the atmosphere. We had sandwiches and some flatbreads. The food was fresh and on a healthy side. The menu had a good number of... read more

Casual atmosphere, neat variety of art on the walls, eclectic selection. Cooked well.but a bit pricey for what you got.

Visited Dylan Cafe after reading some of the great reviews on trip advisor on a recent trip through St Johnsbury visiting colleges with my high school daughter. We were greeted right away and sat immediately. Here's the good: Server was very friendly and water with lemon was served without having to ask in bell jar mugs. My ice tea was... More

This charming and unpretentious café in the town's former post office serves up delicious and affordable dinners featuring everything from light appetizers to full main courses. We enjoyed a feast of smoked salmon, French onion soup, a hearty roasted squash salad and a mozzarella and veggie ravioli with a reasonably priced Malbec and some of the friendliest, most responsive service...

Dylan' occupies the ground floor of an old former post office. The doctor is realatively simple, and pets are allowed ( except in the kitchen). The wait staff hustled trom table to table, trying to be as attentive as possible, as they had a pretty full house for lunch when I visited. The curried squash soup was pretty good; with... More

Quaint place with squeaky wood floors. Great service, good food. Had a burger and a salad. Split a cookie but would of skipped it, as it was not real fresh. About $25 bucks for two

My husband & I enjoyed it very much here, the wraps were delicious & the choice of beers were very good. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The booths were probably a Popular Mechanics plan, put together with plywood & painted black. The cushions in the booth need to be replaced, not very cushy. Keeping the old lighting fixtures...
