This little gem of a store made our trip to this area and better by offering some great choices so that we could "eat in" at our accommodations in Grafton VT.

Stopped in on the way home for a quick lunch. It's an interesting place, part store, part cafe. A interesting (eclectic) assortment of menu items. Not too many tables, so you might have to wait. All in all a good place to grab a quick meal.

I just had the best tuna melt of my life. Incredible flavor of Vermont cheddar melted on top of luscious dill-packed tuna fish. Incredible. Ambience is terrific. Small café feel with an amazing assortment of items to choose from. Highly recommend it.

The food was freshly prepared, delicious, creative and beautifully presented. I got the roasted tomato and goat cheese soup, which was incredible, along with a curry chicken salad on... More

My wife and I were in the area on holiday and happened upon the Moon Dog Cafe, just seeing it from the road and curious. Stopping to have lunch there was one of the best decisions of our trip. The atmosphere is warm and charming - artsy and with a spirit that lets you know the community loves this place.... More
