The café has banquettes and a couch in its 2,000-square-foot store, donning that same fast-casual creperie vibe folks of the Upper Valley and beyond have grown familiar with over the years. Owner and founder Benjy Adler told Seven Days Vermont the Quechee location will be a model for future locations.
The coffeehouse serves up coffee and crepes in the morning and burgers, salads, local beer and spirits, and more in the evening. Adler ran a temporary “pop-up” restaurant inside the cafe space during the holidays at the close of 2018, according to the Valley News, and “the food was well-received.”
“The company campaigns on being environmentally conscious and sourcing as much food as possible locally, and soon will offer grass-fed beef burgers from Vershire’s Shire Beef in both Hanover and Quechee,” according to a news release by The Skinny Pancake.
The local chain started as a food cart in 2003 in Burlington, expanding to locations across the Upper Valley, including a brick and mortar on Burlington’s waterfront, full-service locations in Hanover and Montpelier, and seasonal/specialty/fast-service spots across the Burlington International Airport, the University of Vermont, Stowe Mountain Resort, the Chubby Muffin in Burlington’s Old North End, Local Love Catering, and Sugarbush Ski Resort.
The Quechee restaurant is open daily starting at 7 a.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. on weekends. Evening hours will begin with Thursday through Saturday and expand by the summer, Adler told Seven Days Vermont. According to The Skinny Pancake’s website, there is a need for a dishwasher at the new Quechee location.
