A visit to Simon Pearce is never complete without a bite at their cafe. It's quite good, but definitely on the higher end with prices. Lovely views of the river, bride, and homes.

Good food, great riverside dinning, good service, open airy feel. On the pricey side for the quality of food. Good place to bring a dinner date.

We stopped here for lunch on our tour of Vermont. The trout was delicious, the view was beautiful, and our waitress was fabulous. In the basement factory, the glassblowers were making napkin rings. Everyone who worked here was so friendly. Really nice spot!

Lovely location right on a river and waterfall with a covered bridge next door. Beautiful glass and furnishings for sale in their store, and glass blowing going on in the basement. Fabulous menu, award winning wine list, great service, what more could you want?
