Boston <> Killington road food?

Any unique or superb roadside stops not to be missed?

Breakfast, lunch, takeout, syrup spots or cheese-stands? With newborn, so casual and fairly fast are preferable.

{ not with mother-in-law on this road trip, for responders to my other question }

  1. It depends on which road you take. If you go through Ludlow, VT on Rte. 103 (about 10 miles south of Killington), then you could travel a couple of miles past the Rte. 100N turn off, and on your left will be the Crowley Cheese retail outlet. And a couple of miles more on the right is Harry's Cafe in Mt. Holly.

    1. Baba Louis bakery in Chester has good lunches and bakery goodies and is pretty kid-friendly:

      Also, for a treat, just down the road is Grandma Miller's bakery in Londonderry:
      Also in Londonderry is Taylor Farm Cheese, noted for their farmstead goudas:

      If you're coming up 91, you could get off in Brattleboro, and head west on Rt. 9 into Wilmington and have some superior pancakes at Dot's. Then you could mosey up Rt. 100. Or, right outside of Brattleboro is the Chelsea Royal Diner for good diner eats.

      1. And of course, if you're in Brattleboro, you might as well stop at McNeills for the cask conditioned ale (usually three available).

        If you're taking the more usual route (I-89 to Rte. 4), and you're looking for a beer, stop in W. Lebanon at the 7-Barrel Brewery. The beer is good (but the food/service isn't always on a par).

          Umm... RI, we share the passion for the hops & malt but I think you read OP a little too briskly. They're traveling with a newborn. I'm having a little trouble envisioning that tableau in McNeills :)

            Oops. All I noticed, was no mother-in-law.

        2. Brunch at Burdick's Chocolates in Walpole, NH.

          1. Good breakfasts at the Foothills Cafe, Warner NH, exit 8 off of I-89. Huge pancakes and cinnamon buns.
