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 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!

"“We’re ready for our pies,” we tell Ellie at the Putney Diner. “No, you’re not!” she responds, noting that we haven’t totally cleaned our plates of foot-long hot dogs with baked beans, macaroni and (cheddar) cheese, a meat loaf sandwich with cheese and cranberry ..."   [Read More]

New England diners tend to take hot dog cookery and presentation quite seriously. This foot-long lovely was grilled to a crisp and came in a long, buttered and well-toasted bun. That's some good mac 'n' cheese at the back of the plate.

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

Speckled with herbs and rich with Vermont cheddar, Putney Diner's mac 'n' cheese is a hearty meal, even without the foot-long hot dog (in the background) that accompanied it on this day.

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.

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's a dish you'll find on the menu in the cold seasons.

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

Banana cream pie. The crust was so fragile it fell apart as it was carried to the table.
