carry out lunch/stowe

my DH tires of the food in the ski lodges. Since I don't ski, I'd like to meet him at the lodge for lunch with carry out lunch from outside the lodge. Any ideas of good food from a gourmet shop, salad place or sandwich place to bring it at lunchtime?

  1. I don't like it when I can't answer a poster's question directly, so please forgive me on this. I'm not familiar with good sandwich places in the Stowe area, but if you're up for a little drive into Waterbury, there's Ocha Thai and Stebu Sushi, both on Main Street, and both are awesome. They do have take out (Stebu Sushi has premade rolls in a cooler up front, just pick them up and go). Sorry I can' t be more helpful along the lines you were asking for.

    1. Jamie's on Main in the Depot Building on Main street.
      Great sandwiches, soups, etc.

      Harvest Market on Mountain Road - high end yummy stuff but can be pricey.

      Edelweiss Deli further up the Mountain Road for soup and sandwiches, wraps, quiches, etc.

      I've heard great things about the Green Goddess in Lower Village, though I've yet to eat there.

      1. Trip report: Jamies on Main was indeed delicious. We had two different soups and sandwiches plus cookies. If you were planning on brining in food to skiers, you might want a thermos as it is a long drive up the Mountain Road to the ski lodge at Stowe (over 7 miles) In the morning, Jamies was a great place to read the NYTimes, and have a cup of coffee. Very nice bookstore adjacent.

        Harvest Market was delicious too. They offer sandwiches, one soup, lots of prepared foods, and a bakery with pizza (room temperature). Lots looked tasty for lunch, but it is really a carry out for the prepared foods as the foods are not served hot. The cookies were a nice treat for the skiers at the end of the day.

        And surprisingly, the Spruce Base Lodge at Stowe had a very nice lunch offering. Excellent fresh tossed salads, soups, hot foods of much higher caliber than any ski ledge that we have visited. As I understand it, the Spruce Base Camp Lodge only opened this year. My DH reported that the food at other lodge at Stowe was more ordinary.
