Whistlestop Corner Restaurant
Clarendon, VT - Today I took another trip to Vermont. The boys and I went to Rutland and visited with a few blogger buddies. On the way back I took Route 103. I passed this restaurant and then turned around because I thought it looked kind of cool. I decided to have something to eat, so I went in.
The restaurant is in the former East Clarendon Train Station. I was told this is a place frequented by hikers from the Appalachian/Long Trail which crosses Route 103 just south of the restaurant. Hours are Tues - Thurs 6:30am to 3:00pm, Fri. - Sat 6:30am - 8:00pm, Sun 7:00am - 3:00pm. Hours are subject to change due to weather conditions so it is suggested you call ahead 802-747-7070.
In 1998 a caboose was converted into a Ice Cream Caboose; Ice Cream is served there is the Summer, there is seating in the Caboose and on the deck outside.
Here are a few photos from inside the restaurant; looking toward the lunch counter.
This is looking in the dining section. As you can see, the walls are old bead board.
This was my lunch, one of the specials for the day, a Chipolte Burger, tomato, onions, cheddar, on a substantial bun. The burger was hand made, not one of those pre-made skinny burgers, cooked to order. There was plenty to eat, no walking away hungry here.
