Restaurant Review: The Dutch Mill

If you are in the Burlington VT area, and want to take in some local culture and cuisine, you may want to check out The Dutch Mill Family Restaurant on 4309 Shelburne Road (Route 7). It is just down the road from historic Shelburne Farms.

To cap off the 4th of July weekend, we gathered at the Dutch Mill with friends for breakfast. It is a very busy place, so I'd recommend calling a head if you have a large party.

The menu features a wide breakfast selection (available all day), and a lunch menu after 11 AM. The restaurant is open from Tuesday through Sunday from 7:30 AM to 2 PM.

I loaded up on carbs, but there are healthy choices too. We inquired if the feta cheese is made with goat's milk or cow's milk, and the answer turned out to be the later. Moo.

A short stack of pancakes costs $4.75, and for an extra dollar you can request pure Vermont maple syrup. You can also purchase a jug of the local syrup at the Dutch Mill to take home with you.

Our host (who came originally from the Philippines) was polite and full of fun. She dealt with the the army of hungry guests with good humor and calm.
