Choose from a creative menu featuring locally grown and raised foods—a BLT made with bacon from Winding Brook Farm and organic greens, served on a baguette from Elmore Mountain Bakery, for example, or meat loaf with Cabot cheddar. Even the beers are local. There’s music most nights beginning at 7:30—it might be blues, mountain folk, jazz, or gospel.

Best Community-Owned Restaurant

When this hippie-ish eatery almost went under, townspeople purchased thousands of dollars in meal vouchers to keep it alive. Now they sup on organic beer, mac-and-cheese ($8.95), and other comfort foods, listen to local folkies, and entertain their kids with shelves of toys and books. Entrées: from $12.95.

The proprietors like to say that they opened this homey little eatery to provide patrons with a comfortable place “to stay as long as they wanted or as short as they pleased, to play a game, write a poem, or share a song.” You can just eat, if that’s all you want, choosing from a creative menu featuring locally grown and raised foods—a BLT made with bacon from Winding Brook Farm and organic greens, served on a baguette from Elmore Mountain Bakery, for example, or meat loaf with Cabot cheddar. Even the beers are local. As for sharing those songs, there’s music most nights beginning at 7:30—it might be blues, mountain folk, jazz, or gospel.
