Bryant House

Route 100, Weston, VT - (802) 824-6287
The Bryant House is a good place to savor Vermont. Where else will you find crackers and milk on the menu? Another characterful dish is gravy-topped chicken pie. You can have lunch of griddlecakes or Vermont cheddar cheese sandwiches. Desserts include the old Downeast favorite, Indian pudding.

Crackers and milk. There is no neat and tidy way to eat this dish. We're not sure if Emily Post would approve, but we spoon up moist crackers then hoist the cheddar cheese with our fingers and take a chaw.

The antique soda fountain isn't used to jerk syrups any more, but it sure adds color to the Bryant House dining rooms.

Jonnycakes (a.k.a. Johnny Cakes) usually resemble pancakes. At the Bryant House, the jonnycake is a cornmeal and molasses loaf, sliced and seved warm. It is moist, grainy-textured, and good-smelling, with a nostalgic flavor that put us in mind of bread coming out of a 1930s enamel kitchen oven.

Made from the mix you can buy next door at the Vermont Country Store, griddlecakes come with a souvenir nip bottle of Vermont maple syrup. You can see it in the foreground, along with an extra pitcher of syrup that our waitress was kind enough to offer.

The Vermont Country Store, of which the Bryant House is an offspring, is endlessly interesting for shopping and browsing. Here's an exhibit of antique toasters.

A family named the Bryants actually lived in this home, which was built in 1827.
