Foodie’s Guide to Stowe
Eat like a local with our guide
If you’re headed to Stowe for a relaxing New England getaway this season, book a room at The Lodge at Spruce Peak, the destination’s best hotel, and keep this guide on how to eat like a local handy.
Breakfast at Butler’s Pantry
Located in the historic Butler House in the heart of Stowe, this popular, family-operated eatery specializes in just breakfast and brunch. As for the food? It’s familiar, comforting, and deeply dependable. The best sellers include french toast, eggs benedict, and grit cakes, but if you’re seeking something on the light side, go with the acai bowl.
Lunch at Green Goddess Cafe
Opened in 2011, this cozy spot by owners Athena and Tim Callahan isn’t defined by any particular cuisine. Instead, the couple focuses on turning out casual, globally-inspired fare – as evidenced by the Cubano sandwich, Carnita salad, and Shangri-La Wrap – that’s all lovingly made from scratch. Even better? Everything is easy on the wallet, too.
Dinner at Solstice at Lodge at Spruce Peak
Solstice is the signature restaurant and the crown jewel of Lodge at Spruce Peak. Awarded a AAA four-diamond distinction, Solstice marries seasonal, farm-fresh produce with rustic New England Charm. Here, Chef Sean Blomgren and Sommelier Tim Wallace set the tone for an elegant, yet approachable dining experience with a hearty menu of local cheeses, toothsome pastas, and grilled meats. Pair your meal a bottle of wine from the well-curated list.
