I know good food. I've traveled to many places and had good food. When I find a family owned restaurant, nestled in a Vermont valley, that is sparkling clean, serves unique items, I take the time to stop and enjoy. I also love to travel in between seasons since I don't like tourists that don't respect the locals, and all the upset that goes with people flocking all at once to a place and then being mad because there are wait times
My husband and I did just what I described above, this past weekend. We were greeted and given a table immediately, I could tell the man owned the restaurant. Our server was his daughter, and she was wonderful. My husband ordered the Cinnamon Pancakes and I ordered the Apple Crisp Waffle.
Pricey? NO! They make fresh and delicious whipped cream, their Apple Crisp is delicious that is piled on the waffle and an extra amount on the side, the waffle is freshly made and sprinkled with Cinnamon. If you add up the cost of what they actually give you it isn't expensive. If you're comparing it to the Waffle House on the side of the highway, then you don't belong there anyway. You will never find ANYTHING remotely comparable to this anywhere Worth it? YES! My husbands Pancakes were so delicious he didn't even use the "Real" maple syrup they offered, he couldn't finish them and for the first time ever, we took the pancakes home with us and fought over who was going to finish them.
Upon leaving we asked about the pie's, they are expensive, we really didn't need a pie but they offered a half a pie (that was frozen) for $18. We bought it and I'm so happy we did. It was delicious from crust to filling. Those who complain about frozen pie's must forget there are season's in the north and if you are using local produce you must freeze the items. I can guarantee the action of freezing doesn't harm the flavor one bit!
We will be back!
