As the capital of Vermont, Montpelier sports locally owned restaurants and eateries mostly within a few blocks of each other. Stroll and eat, snack and shop, or walk and sip - it makes for a nice day for visitors and locals alike. Start the morning with some crepes in a casual diner. Dine on pasta or wood-fired pizzas while admiring the Winooski River. If you're into locally sourced food, you'll find cafés to oblige. High-end steakhouses lure discriminating palates with their prime steak cuts and elegant brunch menus. Need something to wet your whistle? Check out the hopping brewhouse with its craft beers and upscale bar menu. And when you're ready for sweets, stop at an American eatery for desserts and ice cream.
