Stopping for lunch on the way to Quebec

jjdot Jul 14, 2008 11:48 AM

I'm going to Quebec via I-91 in VT. It looks like St. Johnsbury may be a good bet for lunch. Any suggestions? Are there any other places you might suggest. I would love to find a place that features fresh local food.

    I have not been yet, but can say I've heard really good things about Dylan's Cafe in St. Johnsbury. It's located right downtown on Railroad Street.
    Another great restaurant in StJ is Elements-I don't think they serve lunch, but it may be worth a call to check.

        I'll second Simon Pearce, it's a really special place, and Quechee is just a couple miles off Exit 1 of I-89, not far out of your way at all. This place is worth it.

          If you're looking for something quicker, we really like the Miss Lyndonville Diner, which is just north of St. Johnsbury. Very good, honest food, friendly staff, cheap and quick, to get you on your way!
