One of the great joys of owning Inn Victoria of Chester Vermont, are the bountiful opportunities to indulge in great food, particularly at chef owned restaurants. This week Penny and I celebrated some friends wedding anniversary at Harry’s Cafe in Mount Holly, approximately 5 miles north of Okemo on Rt# 103. What a fantastic restaurant! “An Oasis for the Passionate Appetite” is the tag line at the top of Harry’s web site….I agree and so well said. This place is a MUST on your next trip to the area. Put it at the top of your list.
Trip Pearce started this restaurant over 20 years ago. Seventeen years later Trip married his long time, biggest supporter, Debbie…(she’s the Boss). They know how to run a great restaurant….the food is fantastic and the service is right on the mark as well. This small unassuming building from the outside is typical Vermont style, and when inside, you will feel like you are home with friends in the dining room. The choice of foods is plentiful and the quality is very high. I love duck, and enjoyed one of the best ducks I’ve ever had. Penny enjoyed a roast pork that could be eaten with just a fork. We’ll return often, and of course, recommend Harry’s Cafe to our guests at Inn Victoria. There is so much more on the menu I want to try. Thursday night is Thai night…..guess where you can find me, next Thursday night!
Enjoy a walk through these photos!
