When I think Of Stowe, Vermont, I think of two things. Great skiing and great food. Earlier this week, I posted a guide to all of the fun things you can do in Stowe during the winter. Here is a list of our favorite restaurants we tried during our visit.
The Best Restaurants in Stowe, VT
Skinny Pancake– We ate yummy crepes here every morning! It is so popular, there are two locations in Stowe. One is in the downtown with ample parking and plenty of seating. There is a second location at Spruce Peak. (Open daily)
Butler’s Pantry– Classic breakfast fare served in a warm, charming house with rustic accents & outdoor seating. (Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays)
The Bagel– New York-style bagels made the old fashioned way; kettle boiled and baked fresh daily. We offer twenty types of bagels baked fresh daily. We have an extensive menu of breakfast and lunch sandwiches. (Closed Sunday, Monday and Thursday)
Doc Ponds– the brainchild of the same people who run Hen of the Wood, an upscale farm to table restaurant. Doc Ponds offers the same great food in a more casual environment with a roaring fire. I highly recommend the spiked chocolate milkshake. (Closed on Mondays)
Green Goddess– A casual global menu of breakfast fare, sandwiches & smoothies in a homey, cottage-chic setting. (Open daily)
Edelweiss Mountain Deli– A Vermont experience & Stowe’s best deli: hearty sandwiches, prepared food including award winning chili, salads, breakfast sandwiches, VT craft beer, a global wine set with something for everyone & specialty retail foods. (Open daily)
Whistle Pig– Enjoy the best apres ski experience in the East! Located just steps from the slopes in the heart of the Village, the WhistlePig Pavilion offers WhistlePig-inspired cocktails, craft beer, fire-baked raclette and alpine fare. (Closed Monday and Tuesday)

Piecasso– Artisan pizzas and craft cocktails. Need I say more? (Closed Wednesdays)
Matterhorn– Located a stone’s throw from Stow Mountain, this is the best place for a cold beer after a day on the slopes. Voted #1 apres ski bar in North America by the readers of USA Today Newspaper. (Open daily)
The Backyard– this place is kind of hidden, but we were so glad we found it. I loved their tacos and maple margarita! Ample parking and a casual atmosphere make this place an easy choice. (Closed Wednesdays)
These are just a few of our favorite places we tried. I can’t stress enough that you need to plan ahead. With so many tourists descending on this little village, the restaurants fill up quickly.
Also be sure to call ahead, because many places are closed on Mondays or Tuesdays. I tried to list what days each restaurant is closed, but hours are always subject to change at any time.
