Driving from Driving from Boston to Middlebury - lunch recommendations?

jacinthe | Jun 13, 2008 07:28 PM

As the title states, I'm driving from Boston to Middlebury, VT (actually, the wedding is closer to Vergennes, I think), for a friend's wedding in a couple of weekends. I am completely unfamiliar with Vermont - in fact, the only other time I was there was for another friend's wedding in Vermont last winter in Waitsfield. That trip, we were trying to get to and from Boston as quickly as possible. This time, I have a wee bit more time (and am by myself), and inspired by the latest issue of Saveur (the roadtrip issue), I wanted to find places to stop off for a quick but tasty lunch en route to and from (so, for Saturday and Sunday).

I looked at the website, but couldn't tell how old the reviews were (my hunch, rather old). Then I tried googling the restaurants, but there were no recent reviews.

Restaurants they list that appear to be mostly on the way:
Blanche & Bill's Pancake House, Bridgewater Corners, VT
Wasp's Snack Bar, Woodstock, VT
White Cottage, Woodstock, VT

Are they still around? Are they still good? Are there any other recommendations in that vein? I'd even be happy with a place that sells really good sandwiches. Being based in Los Angeles right now, I rarely get the opportunity to find and eat at such types of restaurants, and I really enjoy them.

Thanks in advance!
