Putney Diner

Main St., Putney, VT - (802) 387-5433
Here is a delightful little town eatery just minutes away from I-91 at Exit 4. In the morning, plates of plain or buckwheat pancakes come with only-in-Vermont maple syrup. Eggs can be had with kielbasa or corned beef hash. And broad-topped muffins are split and toasted on the grill. At lunch, you can count on square meals of meat loaf or roast turkey and stuffing or the arcane Yankee favorite, American chop suey. And you must have pie for dessert!

Candy in a crust. Waitress Ellie recommends ice cream or whipped cream atop this maple walnut pie because the cream helps balance its sweetness.

It looks like a lunch room, but it's a diner, heart and soul.

When you enter, a shelf holding the day's pies is just to your right. These are sturdy-crusted pies typical of the northeast.

American chop suey is one of the strangest true-Yankee dishes, with a pseudo-Chinese name and semi-Italian character. At the Putney Diner they make it with big chunks of sausage and serve it with garlic bread on the side. It isn't pretty, but it's mighty satisfying.

The comfort-food classic, macaroni & cheese, is here made with Vermont cheddar, of course.

Up close and personal with a slice of Putney Diner apple pie. It's good with ice cream or whipped cream, even better with a chunk of cheddar.
