In the business since 1994, Edelweiss Bakery and Sandwich Shop, now located at 325 Lower Main Street Johnson, has been providing quality sandwiches and French pastries out of its European styled bakery.

The Vermont Pub & Brewery has been a go-to-spot for me for eight years. The Pub’s famous lion statues can be seen from across the street; they should be viewed as inviting creatures, rather than those that will ravage your wallet. After one ascends the wide stairs and enters the restaurant, one ha...

This season’s icy grip has been making my family cranky; the six of us were seeing way too much of each other and, frankly, my kids were starting to have faces even I couldn’t love. We were getting stir-crazy and my daughters were begging for a mother-daughter day. I wanted to give my girls an...

Walking into the Jeffersonville Village Tavern, I could understand why it’s called “a family-friendly pub and restaurant.” The warmly dim lighting and the exposed beam-work of the building suggest entering an ancient Adirondack barn. I sat across from my friend Gabriel.  A server instantly...

On a cold November evening on Church Street in Burlington, my companion and I stood gazing at the gleaming red neon onion in the window just above a rack of bread loaves.   It looked warm and inviting, we were hungry, so in we went. The Red Onion Deli was busy despite the lack of people outside....

In a town like Stowe, Vt, which has more than 45 restaurants and only 4,300 residents, it’s tough to set yourself apart from the rest, and many restaurants end up closing faster than they could open. The downtown Whip Bar and Grille never had to suffer this fate. Situated in the historic Green Mountain...

For years I had avoided going to the Ponderosa Steakhouse in Williston because whenever it was mentioned, the response from anyone who had been there was, “Gross!” Generally when there is such a unanimous negative reaction to a place, you avoid it. For me, that sometimes makes me more curious, so...

A little red schoolhouse sits alone at the intersection of Route 242 and Amidon Rd. in Montgomery Center. This building may be in a secluded spot on the outskirts of a small Northern Vermont town, but inside is a relaxing and unique dining environment offering varied and superb fare. As for menu options,...
