We’ve got some great Restaurants, Cafes and snack bars throughout the Northeast Kingdom – Newport, Derby, Jay Peak Area, Barton and Island Pond.
Here are our suggestions as to some of the best places to eat in the area. As hard as it might be to choose, we know you’ll pace yourself. Only one dinner each night!! But, we think you’ll be coming back for years to come, so take your pick and work your way through the list. You’re not going to go wrong with any of these listings.
Some say it’s the best old school breakfast in town: eggs, home fires, bacon, pancakes, french toast. Makes us hungry just writing this. Opens at 5 am for those looking for a breakfast boost before a great day and serves breakfast until they close at 2:00 pm.
While you’re here, don’t miss the Elk Burgers and Elk Steaks at The Cow Palace in Derby Center. (If you don’t want to eat Elk, you can watch them graze out back of the Palace.)
Celebrate being in the heart of The Kingdom with a great, family style dinner on the shores of Lake Memphremagog at our local institution The EastSide Restaurant. The food is great!! On a nice afternoon or evening the deck on the water is “to die for.” 47 Landing St, Newport. (802) 334-2340.
