It's right up a hill from the Amtrak station -- the perfect place to grab a snack before you head on the train. It's also a bright, spacious place to get the delicacies of Vermont at a reasonable price. American Cheese Society darling Vermont Creamery, rare cheeses from of Cabot's artisan line, even cheese from Von Trapp . . . and you might have heard that the last of the singing Von Trapps just passed away.

They have a good selection of prepared goodies, too. Their pizzas don't skimp on gourmet cheese or fresh veggies.
