If you’re looking for a home cooked style meal made from scratch served up in a beautiful historic house, then it is Butler’s Pantry for you!

Tucked away inside of the Butler House Inn, at first glance, you might not even know a restaurant lies inside. But indeed it does: a cozy space where have a dozen tables are gathered.

Inventive offerings like their Cheddar Jalapeno Pancakes offer a savory twist on a sweet classic, and breakfast staples like Biscuits and Gravy and French Toast are prepared to perfection. 

During my recent visit to Butler’s Pantry with my family, we ordered the biscuits and gravy along with pancakes. Both were outstanding, and my husband also had an Irish coffee that was perfect on a chilly Vermont morning.
