When it comes to dining, Middlebury delivers—with a thriving and innovative restaurant scene.
Places are often measured by the quality and variety of their restaurants. Middlebury has attracted a wide array of high quality eateries of all types: fine dining, casual upscale, family friendly, and on-the-go. There are countless ways to tempt your taste buds here.
The variety of restaurants in Middlebury is truly impressive for a small town. We’re home to international cuisine and American steakhouses, pizzerias and ice cream shops, bakeries and taverns. Old fashioned root beer floats at the local carhop, and specialty drinks at the tea shop. Places to take your kids, and places to go on date night.
During warmer months, enjoy views of the river from a sunlit dining room, or bustling Main Street from outdoor patios. And, during cooler weather, there’s nothing as cozy as enjoying a delicious dinner in front of a roaring fire.
Menus that feature fresh, locally sourced ingredients are a common sight in the Middlebury area, where our agricultural history is celebrated. Many restaurants belong to the Vermont Fresh Network, which promotes relationships among chefs, farmers, and consumers to grow the local food economy.
