Crowley Cheese

This dairy, our family favorite, has been making cheese in small batches, by hand, since 1824. It’s the cheddar that gets sliced and served with our Thanksgiving apple pie and the block that gets grated for Aunt Roxie’s mac-and-cheese. Check the Web site to see when folks there are cheddaring–they

Bagelsaurus

At $4 a pop (with cream cheese), these bagels might come with a side of sticker shock, but trust us: They’re worth it. One bite of the cracklingly crisp exterior and the moist, chewy center will remind you that all those so-called bagels you’ve been eating are really just sandwich

Ted’s Restaurant

In Meriden, the folks at Ted’s have been doing their share of burgering for more than five decades, and the secret to inspiring their loyal following is the way they steam the patties. Juicy, tender, and topped with cheddar … We’re reluctant to suggest that they’re healthier than grilled or

Black Dog Tavern

The Black Dog Tavern was founded in 1971 by Captain Robert Douglas, who wanted a place where locals could go and share a meal, year round. But first, it began with some dreams. Captain Douglas, originally from Chicago, came to the Vineyard at a young age and knew he wanted

Cabot Creamery Visitors Center

This nearly 100-year-old co-op buys milk from more than 1,200 dairy farms all over New England and upstate New York. From grocery-store staples to award-winning aged varieties and cave-ripened cloth-bound cheddars (a collaboration with Greensboro’s Jasper Hill Farm), fine cheese is a priority.–Yankee Magazine, May/June 2011800-837-4261. Main St., Cabot. Best

Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site

The visitors’ center exhibit uses Coolidge’s own words, objects from his life, and interactive media to relate the story of how this farm boy became our 30th president. His white-clapboard village is frozen in the 1920s, and the cheese factory his father built now produces exceptional granular curd cheddar. BEST

Cheese Outlet Fresh Market

MEAL DEALAt 5 p.m. all premade sandwiches are discounted 50 percent; at 6, deli items are reduced 25 percent. Vermont’s culinary revolution from its maple-and-cheddar past is nowhere better exemplified than at this chic market on downtown Burlington’s southern fringe. Market?

Cheese Traders & Wine Sellers

Best Cheese On The CheapIrregularly shaped chunks of Cabot cheddar; mildly mature (recently expired) wedges of Stilton; brie, hugely tasty … You never know what treats you’ll find at bargain prices in the Traders cheese case. There are also terrific buys on wines.

Chez Vachon

This place gets it right: The fries are crispy, and the mild cheddar curds are just beginning to melt under the chicken gravy, which is black-pepper spicy.–Yankee Magazine, September/October 2010Chez Vachon’s poutine was chosen as a favorite food pick. Crispy French fries sprinkled with cheese curds and smothered in gravy:

Miller’s Cafe & Bakery

Miller’s lunch special is a particularly good deal. Opt for a bowl of soup of the day, perhaps carrot-apple-thyme, with a whole or half panini, such as smoked turkey with bacon, cheddar, and tomato. The deck overlooking the Ammonoosuc River is a perfect place to enjoy the meal. BEST SOUP

Riverview Cafe

The big draw at this 130-year-old museum is the Grandma Moses Gallery.

Rozzi’s Lakeshore Tavern & Restaurant

Best Burger MenuA 32-burger menu makes this Mallets Bay sports bar a Burlington-area favorite; selections include Cajun mushroom, escargot, and “Green Mountain” (cheddar, bacon, and apples). Full Entree menu; lots of microbrews, and the fearsome two-pound “Dozer Challenge.”

The Barley House

Best BurgerYou can’t go wrong with any of the seven varieties of burgers here–all ground fresh in house. But there’s a reason that the “McBarley Burger,” complete with Russian dressing, pickles, roasted red onions, house-cured bacon, and cheddar cheese, takes its name from the restaurant.

The Bee’s Knees

Choose from a creative menu featuring locally grown and raised foods—a BLT made with bacon from Winding Brook Farm and organic greens, served on a baguette from Elmore Mountain Bakery, for example, or meat loaf with Cabot cheddar. Even the beers are local. There’s music most nights beginning at 7:30—it

The Gallows

The burger craze hit Boston several years ago, leaving a trail of tasty, souped-up patties in its wake. But we’re partial to the simple pleasure of the “Our Way” burger at this South End gastropub: a beefy slab topped with grilled onions, iceburg lettuce, pickles, and good old American cheese.

The Old Tavern at Grafton
