Venice, FL - The Clock - chain; reasonable, good food
Cracker Barrel Old Country Restaurants
This popular chain has truck, bus and RV parking in the rear of many of their restaurants and is
usually open to parking overnight. We make a point of asking permission, usually when we are
paying the bill. Originally, we ate a big dinner and equally big breakfast until we realized we
were spending more than if we stayed at a campsite. Now we have a sandwich for dinner and a
small breakfast. They have delicious homemade biscuits and freshly squeezed orange juice. If
it's pancakes or French toast you want - they serve REAL VT maple syrup!
CINNAMON DOUGHNUTS - a/k/a DONUTS - only the notable ones
Jana;s Cupboard - Jeffersonville, VT
Price Chopper Cafe - South Burlington, VT
Vermont Restaurants - by town
An eatery I used to scorn, but no more. Want a great breakfast any time of day or night?
Come to Denny's. Sit at the counter, sit at a table, or do as we do, ask for a booth by the
window. We like to watch the passing show - cars, bikers, hikers, anything that moves. Cor has
the Grand Slam (Senior size and price.) I ask for, and get, a burned England Muffin. Sometimes
I'll have a poached egg on it along with a dish of applesauce (that Cor invades.) If it's noontime,
Cor sticks with his Grand Slam, but I order a senior Club Sandwich, eat half and take the other
half home for dinner - it's that big and full of chicken and bacon!
Cor and I remember our mothers' doughnuts (recipe probably from The Fannie Farmer
School of Cooking Cookbook, of which we have two dog-eared, food-spattered, vintage
Now we are combing the thrift shops for a relatively small fryer (space is at a premium) to try
our hands at this.
I wish we could tow something with our leased car, but we are not allowed. I would tow a small
covered trailer containing a doughnut stand, a pool table and a hot tub. That would be living!

A new one to us. Abby took us there for breakfast. It was very popular and crowded on a
Sunday morning after Church, but the line moved quickly and we got a nice booth and even
nicer breakfast. Much like Denny's, with some added treats. I had a fresh blueberry crepe
that was delicious; Abby had chicken-fried steak and Cor had his favorite corned beef hash.
No website, but you can Google it for reviews
