Smugglers’ Notch Places to Eat
The Burger Barn
Route 15, Jeffersonville, VT (aka, take a right at the Mobil)
The Burger Barn, pictured at the left, could most optimistically be described as “unassuming”. There’s barely a sign identifying it (except for the one that is still up in their old location down the road), and most tourists would drive right by. But, you’d be missing something fabulous – gourmet, grass-fed burgers with amazing toppings, and the most delicious fresh-cut fries. Eat outside, or take back to your hotel room to enjoy.
55 Church St, Jeffersonville, VT (behind the Smugglers’ Notch Inn)
For an out of this world breakfast, don’t miss The Mix Cafe and Bakery, which is tucked behind the Smugglers’ Notch Inn. Fresh, local ingredients, and a innovative menu are the standouts here – try the Jersey Sliders, which are a fabulous option on the seasonal menu.
4323 Vt Route 108 S, Jeffersonville, VT (on-site at Smugglers’ Notch Resort)
This privately-owned and operated restaurant located right on property at Smugglers’ Notch is fabulous. With a family dining room and an adult dining room, everyone can enjoy their dinner. The menu focuses on modern American cuisine with fresh, local ingredients. Take out is also available, if you’d prefer to eat in your room.
Junction 15 & 10470 Vermont Route 104, Cambridge, Vermont
