The Stowe Dining Guide for Your Winter Escape

December 9, 2021


Wrap up the year and kick off the new one by treating yourself to a remarkable meal at a Stowe restaurant. Named one of the “Best Ski Towns for Foodies” by Fodor’s Travel, Stowe and its award-winning dining culture will leave you wanting more! Read on to get a taste of Stowe cuisine—from traditional American to an international flare or a morning fuel-up that suits all ages, experience the variety dining in Stowe this winter!

Traditional American…But Make It Local

Fine Dining, *Chef’s Kiss
Looking for an unforgettable fine dining experience? Look no further than right on Main Street at Harrison’s Restaurant and Bar and Cork Restaurant and Wine Bar. If you are craving the stunning view of Mt. Mansfield, take the Gondola up to the Cliff House Restaurant. We don’t know what’s better: the view or the food! 

Play and an Entrée
Get active with friends and family while enjoying Stowe’s variety of local dishes. Grab a bowling bowl while munching on some wings at Stowe Bowl. No need to miss the game because you are on vacation, go to Charlie B’s Pub and Restaurant or The Backyard to enjoy some game-day bites while watching all of your favorite teams. 

Get Ready for the Day…Stowe Style
Wake up, slip on your winter boots, and head out to our delicious breakfast restaurants on Mountain Road! Only a half mile from town, Skinny Pancake offers a selection of sweet and savory crepes and The Bagel won’t disappoint with their variety of bagels and spreads that will make you want to lick your lips. The Nest huddled within the Golden Eagle Resort provides an array of classic breakfast dishes the whole family will enjoy. Prepare yourself for the day the right way!

A Twist on International Flare

Asian Fusion
Watch a tower of onions lit up in flames, or sip on a warm miso soup after a long day in the New England cold at Sushi Yoshi! Whether you choose to book a reservation for hibachi or walk-in for a table experience, you won’t forget your night and the countless choices of Asian cuisine. If you are looking for takeout, look no further than Umami right on Main Street! A new addition to our town this summer, Umami has already earned a spot as a crowd favorite serving cuisine inspired by Szechuan and Cantonese regions of China, Japan and Thailand.

Enjoy true local cuisine, while watching your freshly-made pizza bubble in the wood-fired oven at The Bench. As a local favorite, they offer a generous menu of craft beer, cocktails, and wine…but save room for a skillet cookie pulled out of the wood-fired oven seconds before it’s sitting in front of you. Craving a cheesy, doughy pizza or creamy pasta to sink your teeth into? Head on down to Piecasso Pizzeria and Lounge where you will find pizza and pasta glore. You deserve it after a winter day in Stowe!

Looking for A Quick Fuel-Up?

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!
Located on Main Street, Black Cap Coffee and Beer is hard to miss. Partnering with the local Vermont Coffee Company, their coffees, lattes, and cappuccinos are a must-try delight. Another coffee spot in high-demand, PK Coffee partners with Counter Culture Coffee, an independently owned roaster focused on working with small, sustainable farmers from all over the world. Get cozy with a steamy coffee as fresh layers of snow multiply by the hour. 

Scrumptious Treats
Experience a mix of Austria and Vermont at the Trapps Family Kaffeehaus offering Austrian baked goods, drinks, and other breakfast items. Before cruising up to the mountain, make a stop at Stowe Bee Bakery to grab a quick treat and a warm drink before hitting the slopes…you won’t regret this pit-stop! Nothing is better than a handmade donut, and Stowe Dough has you covered. Only open on the weekends, make sure to stop in the Round Hearth Café to grab a donut before they are all gone!

To make your dining experience as smooth as possible, call for reservations and check restaurant hours of operation in advance. Prepare for some amazing flavors and unforgettable experiences at our local restaurants in Stowe!
