Formerly known as Parson’s Corner, this local favorite for breakfast has a whole lot more to offer. In 2020, it came under new ownership and the whole space got a face lift.
This little restaurant in Barton, VT packs a lot into what seems to be a small space. But with three dining areas there is plenty of seating. Fresh paint, bright tones, and country décor featuring local and Vermont themed prints keeps the space feeling open and authentic.
The menus for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are filled with traditional favorites and local specials such as baked beans at breakfast, poutine, burgers, a club sandwich, and chicken fingers. But, these menus are also backed with surprises such as: poutine over home fries for breakfast, their signature salad featuring fruit and maple, fresh seafood well seasoned and perfectly cooked, and fresh never frozen burgers.
Their signature seasoned breading adds something special to each fried item (including the chicken parmesan). Pairing a nice crispy texture with a lot of flavor, diners will have trouble not indulging in just one more bite, even after being full.
Pasta dishes, meat and potato options, children’s favorites, sandwiches, burgers, a variety of chicken options, and a wonderful selection of appetizers and sides makes this a place to fit everyone’s tastes. They have even obtained their liquor license making beer and wine available, as well as select mixed drinks.
When eating at Parsons Pub and Grill, you won’t leave hungry. Dinner entrees are served with a dinner roll, salad, and many have a potato option. Portions are large and sandwiches piled high so don’t be surprised if you need a take-out container for your leftovers.
The best part about this local eatery is just that…It feels local.
Located right in downtown Barton, the building has a lot of history. Formerly the parsonage (you probably guessed by the name) it has had an important place in the community. Many weddings took place in the rooms that now serve diners. Looking out onto the church and school, the space seems tied to the town itself. Diners seem to all know each other (even many of the summer residents), and people greet each other with a wave or tip of the head. The waitstaff is eager to please and often the owners come out to check on diners. There is this small town vibe that helps make the space cozy and nostalgic. When you pair that with fantastic food, you’ve got a winning restaurant.
