Our food was good but the service was marginal. We were at the cafe for a late lunch and the servers seemed to be tired and disinterested. The food - French onion soup, sandwich and salads - were satisfactory and certainly better than fast food but the experience was dampened by the waitstaff who seemed to be having an off... More

Great variety on the menu. We had 6 in our party and everyones meal was excellent. Wished we lived closer as it would be a weekly go to. You won't be disappointed.

We dined for lunch at Dylan's, which is in the heart of St. J, in the town's old post office. I had the chicken cashew salad with strawberries and apples. The dressing was a balsamic maple vinaigrette. The presentation was beautiful and just the right amount for a lunch. Would definitely go back to try another salad or wrap. A... More

We were unexpectedly in St. Johnsbury and stopped at Dylan's for lunch. We were able to sit outside on a beautiful October day. The menu was varied and the food very good. The service was also very good. We would recommend this restaurant.

This is a place that takes the food it serves seriously and has excellent service ...more restaurants should have these values...I had the Crabcake sandwich which was excellent and my wife had the Mediterranean wrap which was also excellent...the sweet potato fries were disappointing...must be frozen...but these days frozen from a bag is not good enough ...

This restaurant was recommended to us by two local merchants and the trudge up the hill to get to it was well worth it. A good soup, a very tasty BLT and some excellent salads (try the warm Brie salad with almonds and cranberries) left everyone satisfied. Thanks to the waitstaff!!

We enjoyed our early dinner and all the food we had was really really good including the flatbread pizza, turkey sandwich, salad and n rings. The Inside is kind of dark but the outside patio was so cute and pleasant despite the view of road construction. Building itself is a renovated post office which did have its historical charm.

En route also to Quebec, we made a beeline to Dylan's recalling our lunch there 3 years before. We each had a Turkey sandwich-- mine Dylan's classic and my husband, Tiff's special wrap with cheddar, pesto and more. Sooooo good especially with unsweetened iced tea! Thanks, Tiff!

We were driving from CT to Quebec City, and St. Johnsbury was the halfway point. We had read about Dylan's Cafe and decided to give it a try. We were so pleasantly surprised by it. The food was good, the servers were so nice, and there is a fun and kind of hip atmosphere there.

Dylan's Cafe has excellent flatbread pizzas. I had the Tuscany Flatbread. It was topped with delicious homemade pesto, fresh tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. The lovely new deck made for great dining on this beautiful summer day. They also have great Green Mountain iced coffee.
