Located across from a small Lakeshore, the Barnard General Store, is a great place to pick up a picnic lunch, and anything else you might need on a lazy morning in Vermont.

Without hesitation, the best pancakes I have ever had. The gouda bacon and egg sandwich was also extremely tasty. Loved our short stop in for breakfast here - a charming slice of rural VT. Don't miss this place!!!

This place is the best! You really could not hope for a more charming place to eat breakfast, lunch, or ice cream. The store is extremely well stocked with groceries and is staffed by smiling, helpful people.

Our first visit to Vermont included stopping by BGS for sandwiches to go. Great choices, but be sure to check their hours of food service. Delicious food to take and enjoy at nearby Silver Lake! No other take-out option in the immediate area other than...More
