Pie And More: Stop And Eat At Hartland VT Diner Near I-91
Finding a diner in VT can be an exercise in futile creativity. Diners have a habit of word-of-mouth advertising, the “mouth” aspect being a seriously relevant word. Anyway, it’s the locals who know where to go. At Exit 9 on I-91, they go to the Hartland VT Diner for breakfast, brunch, sandwiches, gossip, and homemade pie.
Boring name, blah building, lip-smacking food… That about describes the Hartland Diner. Some things in life don’t need fancy. But tasty home-cooked? Bring it on!
Appearances are deceiving…
The Hartland VT Diner is behind the bank in what might just be the most boring-looking building you’ve ever laid eyes on. At least, there’s no-fuss parking.
But…slap dabba do in the middle of said banality, flags, flowers, doo dads beckon. Who’d have thunk?
Stools and booths
Heed the call, step right in, and you’ll find a cozy world of cute old-fashioned. The Hartland Diner couldn’t possibly be cuter or more old-fashioned, as a matter of fact.
Notice the “pie” word slipped in along the way. When life’s on a budget, a piece of homemade pie might be the perfect stand-in for a gourmet meal. Especially when the chef’s liberal with the whipped cream.
But ya know? Hartland VT Diner has all kinds of “gourmet” meals on offer and they won’t drain your wallet. You can verify right at this enticing link.
It’s not exactly a “greasy spoon”
Ever heard of a diner that actually roasts turkey to get the turkey slices that’ll be piled on your turkey club?
Yes, they’ve either been cooking up the real stuff for hours in expectation of your arrival, or they’ll be cooking it on the spot after you’ve made your grand entrance, plonked yourself at the counter in an aquamarine faux leather booth, scanned the blackboard for the day’s specials, and ordered up.
Don’t plan to hurry.
Check for hours
Don’t get running late, though, ‘cos this cute and tasty break just might not be open after lunch at the moment you’re zooming along I-91. And if you’ve got the wrong day? SOL. Check for open times before you come.
While you’re doing other stuff near Hartland VT…
There’s more. Looking for a great break close by? How about a National Historic Site, the longest covered bridge in the US, and a walk among sculptures? You’ve come to the right place, since those sites are within 5 miles of the Hartland Diner.
And if you’re driving to Canada on I-91 or the big cities way south, dawdling at a diner in small-town Hartland VT will be way more fun. Heck, it’s worth a trip even if you live in the neighboring towns of the Upper Connecticut Valley.
