Honeypie is a brand new family restaurant that's attracting so many customers in the quiet town of Jamaica, Vermont. The first thing that strikes you about this place is that it used to be a gas station. Inside, they've gutted it out and made it look quite modern. There's plenty of room for their spacious kitchen and lots of space for customers to spread out in the dining room. Outside, the old gas station awning still stands. Instead of pumps, there are tables for people to eat during the warmer months.

Honeypie offers a simple menu with hearty, American favorites. There are burgers, sausages and sandwiches. I ate up their single burger which comes with lettuce, tomato, pickled red onions, Cabot cheese and a special sauce. For a buck, I added some crisp bacon. It was delicious. Our table of three shared a basket of their shoestring french fries. Honeypie also has several sausages on their menu which are made of, as they say, " locally raised happy and healthy animals." Their lobster roll is intriguing. It's made from Maine lobster meat. I've gotta try their grilled cheese, which, of course, is made with Cabot cheddar.

Honeypie has its liquor license which means they have several local beers on tap, wine and craft cider. I'm not a huge cider fan, but the Shacksbury cider called out to me the other night. It was quite good and a nice complement to my burger and fries. Honeypie also has milkshakes: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, Oreo, salted caramel and banana peanut butter.

What a nice place. It's the perfect stop for anyone heading to or coming from a day of skiing this winter. See you soon!
