Located across from a small Lakeshore, the Barnard General Store, is a great place to pick up a picnic lunch, and anything else you might need on a lazy morning in Vermont.

Without hesitation, the best pancakes I have ever had. The gouda bacon and egg sandwich was also extremely tasty. Loved our short stop in for breakfast here - a charming slice of rural VT. Don't miss this place!!!

This place is the best! You really could not hope for a more charming place to eat breakfast, lunch, or ice cream. The store is extremely well stocked with groceries and is staffed by smiling, helpful people.
