Vermont Suggestions

Good Morning,
I'm going to be spending a week in Vermont to look at foliage, and do some general sightseeing. Homebase for the week is Bondville, but we're taking a bunch of daytrips to pay homage to Ben and Jerry and Magic Hat. I already know about Up for Breakfast in Manchester, are there other recommendations you can share? My only requirment is that there be vegetarian options on the menu for my traveling companion.
TIA for all of your help!

  1. I really like Blanche and Bill's Pancake House (on Route 4 in Bridgewater Corners, (802) 422-3816). Wonderful breakfasts.

      A leaf peeper driving up Rt 100 to Ben & Jerry's could certainly hit Blanche & Bill's. It's about an hour from Bondville. It's maybe 1/2 mile east on Rt 4E at the 4/100 intersection.

      In the Killington area, I personally prefer Sugar & Spice on Rt 4W in Mendon for breakfast. ... 10 minutes out of the way if you're doing Rt 100. On Sundays, Choices at the top of the Killington Access Road also has an excellent brunch.

    2. In the Bondville area I enjoy the 3 Clock Inn (Londonderry) or the Chanticleer in Manchester.

      In the Burlington area and very close to Magic Hat Brewery is chef owned "Taste"- It's right on the waterfront and has a beautiful view of the sunset over Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks. The food and atmosphere are wonderful! Lots of vegetarian options...

      Hope you enjoy your trip- I was just driving in the Jay Peak area- close to peak color in the high elevations already!

      1. American Flatbreads in Waitsfield. They only serve on Friday and Saturday nights.

          I second Flatbreads, as well as Penny Cluse Cafe in Burlington.

        2. For your Burlington area day trip(s)...definately go to Tommy's City Grill for lunch. It's on Shelburne Road (Route 7) just north of the I-189 intersection in Shaws Plaza (about a mile north of Magic Hat). This place has fast become our lunch spot of choice. EXCELLENT food. Many vegetarian options. They have your standard burgers & dogs (meat or no meat), fries, chicken sandwiches etc, but also a great mexican menu. I believe they have a website.
          In Burlington itself, A Single Pebble is my favorite restaurant. They are now open for lunch. Authentic Chinese food with many, many vegetarian options.

          1. Penny Cluse in Burlington does great breakfast and lunch.
