Hello everyone, welcome back to another installment of our road trip through Vermont! We got off of 89 in search of Woodstock, but ended up finding gem after gem in Quechee, Vermont en route! After a short walk through the woods (less than a mile) we made it to the Quechee Gorge, the deepest gorge in Vermont!
There are some awesome restaurants in the area that we could have spent the whole weekend trying out restaurants in these two towns alone!
The Mill at Simon Pearce. What could be better than “America’s Most Romantic Restaurant”? One that uses fresh, local ingredients in a gorgeous setting!
Dana’s by the Gorge. A gorgeous brunch place located across the street from the gorge, Dana’s menu has a seemingly endless variety of pancakes, muffins, and even fried dough that I cannot wait to go back and try!
Worthy Kitchen. This burger joint has an assuming front a few minutes drive from the Woodstock center, but the inside is no joke. The gorgeous modern farmhouse interior is home to mouth watering burgers and a carefully curated list of local Vermont craft beers.
Mon Vert Cafe. This cafe was absolutely packed with tourists while we were there, but it is a great option for food in Woodstock. They have tons of sandwich and salad options, featuring tons of fresh ingredients from local Vermont and New Hampshire farmers! An older couple on a foliage expedition was kind enough to share their table with us and gave us some great lunch company in true Vermont fashion!

Down the road is the Quechee Gorge Village, filled with local Vermont treasures such as a Cabot Cheese sampling area, maple syrup, antique shop, and more!
Down in Woodstock the main appeal is just strolling the village area. The famous covered bridge, gorgeous houses, and stunning foliage provided endless eye candy everywhere we looked.
