An unassuming little eatery hidden behind a clothing shop...but don't let that fool you! This place has terrific food, especially the gourmet salads. You can get a sample plate so you can try 2 or 3. Freshly brewed tea, delicious coffee, pastries that make you drool. What more could you want at lunch??

This Café and Bakery-Pastry held by a Belgium origin Chef is keeping the great quality level on all fronts since its opening many years ago. Well placed on the main road of Willinston going to Vermont University Campus road, a place to remember when going shopping to Essex Junction or anywhere in Burlington. Simple and limited, their menu is diversified... More

Wonderful, casual, corner bakery and meal stop. There is plenty of parking and meal options include soups, salads. sandwiches, and quiche (and probably more things than I can recall). there are two cases of desserts that are great for snack, after a meal or to take home for a special occasion.

This is an attractive bakery/ cafe in a strip mall. We arrived at 10:45 on a weekday morning to find breakfast finished but were able to order quiche and a breakfast burrito from the lunch menu. One orders at the counter, is given a number and food is brought as ready. Coffee and tea are self- service. I mention this... More

Always like going to Chef's Corner Cafe Bakery. The ambiance is nice and not confined. Breakfast or lunch is always interesting and good... baked goods look very appealing and are delicious and nicely decorated too. Good place to go to with family, or to talk about work or going with a friend. Today, had a woman sitting in the nearby... More

This little restaurant is a jewel which I just happened to stop at for lunch. I had the Country ham Quiche which comes with a small green salad. Words are simply not enough to describe this very delicious entrée. The serving was very liberal and everything is baked on the premises. The place is neat and clean and very popular... More

The Chef's Corner has long been a local favorite. Sure, parking is a challenge sometimes. And, their tables are small and very close together. But, you have to try their New Age Veggie sandwich! So simple, yet with the addition of very thin sliced roasted sweet potatoes, it is a total keeper. Think guacamole, "sweets", roasted red peppers, sprouts, pepper... More

This is my favorite place to go to lunch. There is a great choice of delicious sandwiches, my favorite being the chicken salad sandwich. But it is always hard to choose between a sandwich and a choice of two or three deli salads. The salad plate comes with bread and a leafy green salad on the side. We have a... More

This little restaurant in Williston not only features the most delicious sandwiches, but also carries amazing soups and salads as well as deserts that will truly amaze you. The food is clean, unique and so unlike the fatty, greasy uninventive stuff you get elsewhere. You order and take the number to your table and one of the waitstaff will bring... More

I currently don't have a female significant other in my life. However, if I did, I would absolutely bring her to this place. As you walk in the door, you are immediately surrounded by a cornucopia of pastries and baked goods. This is certain to impress the individual you are intimate with, regardless of their gender identity. The wonderful people... More
