Within a retro-style diner trimmed in neon, the chefs at The Farmer’s Diner cull ingredients from more than a dozen local farms, bakeries, and smokehouses into all-day breakfast specials and hearty homestyle fare. After sliding into booths, guests peruse the menu, which tantalizes tongues with diner french toast made from local challah dipped in a farm-fresh egg wash ($6.95 for two pieces; $7.95 for three pieces), or the Vermonster hash breakfast of house-made corned-beef hash adorned with two poached eggs ($8.95). Country pancakes—lauded by Travel + Leisure as some of the nation’s best—are crafted from King Arthur flour and come in buttermilk ($6.50 for two; $7.25 for three) or studded with blueberries, fresh bananas, or chocolate chips arranged into the silhouette of the patron’s favorite dinosaur ($7.25 for two; $7.95 for three).
For lunch, waiters and waitresses take orders for sandwiches ($7.25+) and North Country Smokehouse chili dogs with fries ($6.25), then gallop to the kitchen to fulfill The Farmer’s Diner’s guaranteed speedy meal delivery, which decrees that all plates arrive at tables in a timely fashion or they’re on the house.
