Maple Sugar & Vermont Spice.
Located at 45 Route 4, East Mendon, this little place serves up the best breakfast and lunch in all of Rutland County.
The maple syrup couldn't be more fresh.
Every spring, the Vermont Sugar Houses come alive with the smell of boiling maple sap. Sugar & Spice has their own sugar shack on site, making the syrup as fresh as it can be.
Pretty special specials.
Always looking for new items for their Specials Menu, Sugar & Spice whips up tasty creations like this Waffled Breakfast Sandwich. It almost looks too good to eat... Almost.
Stop by to load up before a day on the slopes.
Nothing starts a day of fun on cold winter days like a warm meal.
Or stop in on your way to go apple picking.
Leaf Peeping in Vermont isn't complete without a stop at one of the many Apple Orchards. It's a tasty and visual experience, but hey, you can't live on apples alone!
This is Vermont - maple syrup isn't just for breakfast.
How about a Sugar & Spice Bacon Cheddar Burger for lunch? Maple syrup on your chips is optional but a definite favorite here.
Relax with the bears outside.
There is fun to be had inside and out.
The bears here don't hibernate.
In winter, every day is a hot chocolate day. After all, winter doesn't have to be negative, even if the temps are!
No matter the weather, it's always sweeter inside.
How's this for a New Year's Resolution... Eat More Waffles!
Leaf peeping doesn't necessarily have a destination. Let's change that.
Vermont foliage is almost here and it looks like it's going to be a great year for Leaf Peeping. Enjoy the surrounding scenery on your way to and from Sugar & Spice.
You can also get some shopping done.
You'll love the homemade maple syrup and maple candies as well as many other local Vermont products.
An excellent example of resilience.
Sugar & Spice reopened and is better than ever.
It continues to serve people in the community and beyond. This "Flat Stanley" came all the way from Orlando for a stack of silver dollar pancakes.

Plan a trip to check out Sugar & Spice and see why this is one place that will keep you coming back for more.
Not only do they make their own maple syrup here, they charge extra if you want the fake stuff. After all, imitation syrup is an insult to our delicious liquid gold! Here are some other
places in Vermont that serve an incredible brunch.
