Papa Pete's in Bennington

 After a morning of antiquing we were starving, so I pulled up my trusty Yelp app for brunch recommendation. Papa Pete's was the highest rated.

Cash only and on the outskirts of town, just how we like it!

 First of all, this. It is so rare for mimosas to be on the menu around here, this was a welcome treat!

 A simple breakfast burrito: egg, black beans, vermont white cheddar, and salsa. All totally fresh and delicious. The homefries were well seasoned ad made with onions. Both rare in Upstate NY. Usually our homefries are potatoes only with NO seasonings.

 M said this eggs benedict was the best. Fresh ham, good home fries, and paprika sprinkled on top. He ate this so fast it was gone before I had even made it 1/4 of the way through my breakfast burrito.

 Then this. M wanted to split pancakes and the waitress warned us that ordering ONE is more than enough for two people to share, and she wasn't kidding!

 Our blueberry pancake was served on a pizza platter WITH a pizza cutter and fresh Vermont Maple Syrup. 

For how large it was, I immediately thought it would be all show and no substance. But this was the most perfectly cooked pancake I have EVER had. Our waitress told us the chef makes these babies with ONE spatula. That is skill. If you're ever in Bennington Vermont, this is the place to check out!

  1. "That pancake is so cool!" is probably the weirdest thing I've ever thought about a pancake. But it happened.
