Small Town Delights

Like the Vermont community that inspired its name, Middlebury typifies small town charm.

EAT Comfort foods in cozy spaces – just-like-mom’s meatloaf Thursdays at Aunt Karen’s Café, juicy chicken “broasted” and crispy at Das Dutchman Essenhaus or biscuits smothered in sausage gravy at the Pumpkinvine Café.

SHOP stylish wardrobe finds for every season beneath the tin ceilings at the Cinnamon Stick, whimsical gifts at the Tulip Tree & General Store or handcrafted hardwoods from Amish-owned Legacy Home Furniture.

PLAY riding the Pumpkinvine Trail past the out-sized statuary at Krider “World’s Fair” Garden, comparing makes, models and memories at summer Classic Car Cruise-Ins Thursdays (May – September) at Das Dutchman Essenhaus or strolling downtown sidewalks brimming with food and fun at the Middlebury Fall Festival (September 18 & 19).
