I was up in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont last week and had lunch at a really neat little place called the Parker Pie Company in West Glover. Its a tiny general store\pizza place\brew pub a long way from anywhere. It was surprisingly busy for a Thursday afternoon.

I had a Vermont Smoke & Cure sausage pizza with mushrooms and extra cheese. The crust was very good, although a bit soggy in the middle, perhaps because of the grease from the extra cheese and sausage. I thought overall it was a very good pie. The pizza, and three sodas were only about $20.00 and was enough for the three of us (although if you are a big eater, its more of a 2 person size).

I did not partake of the brew pub because I was out driving around sightseeing, but they did have a half dozen in house beers that I would have liked to try.

The downside is that West Glover is not the place you just pop up to. Its a long way from everywhere.

    Parker Pie is a not-so-hidden anymore gem. It is a fantastic example of how quality food is possible in a rural area. The only problem is that it is often too busy, despite it's location. That makes me reluctant to go, since there are no other options in the area.

      Yeah, there wasn't anywhere to sit and drink a beer and wait for a table either.

      As Yogi Berra would say, "nobody goes there anymore, its too crowded"

        Now there's a second - Parker Pie Wings - in Newport. I understand they take reservations.
