VPR Cafe: Small-Town Gathering Spots Keep Vermonters Connected (Part II)
The role of small-town restaurants and cafes in Vermont goes deeper than just providing food and beverages. Many of these eateries are also committed to community-building, and have done so for centuries.
In our last episode, Seven Days food writer Sally Pollak, profiled a few of these gathering places around Vermont. This time, Melissa Pasanen explains who these restaurants and inns catered to hundreds of years ago, how they've evolved, and what their involvement in communities looks like today.
