This restaurant is in my home town, and I, like many other locals, really enjoy this special gem of a restaurant. The food is what keeps us coming back. The menu has lots of variety for both vegetarians and those who eat meat. The combinations that the kitchen comes up with are fantastic, sometimes unexpected, but always delicious. I just met friends there for lunch today and had their creamy Potato-Garlic soup (which is always on the menu, plus another soup du jour), and their Winter salad....a yummy mix of healthy greens, carmelized onions, gorganzola cheese, pears and walnuts. I had them hold the bacon on this dish, and find them to be very accomodating to special dietary needs. Outstanding!
I like that you can choose one of 3 "combo lunches:" 1/2 soup and 1/2 salad, or 1/2 salad with 1/2 sandwich, or finally 1/2 sandwich with 1/2 soup. Any of these combo lunches are nicely sized and the soup/salad comes with a few pieces of bread....and all for $9. Be sure to check out their fun website and all their menus, breakfast lunch and dinner. Lots of other great options.
I like visiting best in warmer weather, as they're located right on the Otter Creek (which is nearly a football field wide here) below Middlebury's pretty falls. You can sit outside in either shade or sun at nice outdoor tables and gaze out at the water view.
Inside dining can sometimes be a little loud, as tables are perhaps a tad close together, but it's all good energy and people are happy to be there. Service is always good, I have found, and there's the cheery "hi" and "bye" as patrons come and go. This is a favorite meeting place for both those of us who live here, as well as visitors to our town. I highly recommend!
