Our first view of Dot's:
The pretty stream that flows next to Dot's:
I had their chili, because it won awards at the Vermont State Fair. It was good chili, spicy and hearty and full-flavored, but I regretted ordering it, because it didn't seem to suit the location and the day.
Lori had the berry-berry pancakes, served with local maple syrup. From the outside, they didn't look very berry-ful...
but inside, they were packed with berries. Lori enjoyed them a lot.
For dessert, a piece of chocolate cake. I'm not a big fan of chocolate cake, so I can't tell the difference between a good chocolate cake and a very good chocolate cake. It was dense and moist; I'd call it good but not extraordinary.

Afterwards, we yielded to the siren call of the Cute Little Shops. We actually found a t-shirt and a glass plate that I found worth buying, as well as things for Lori to ooh and aah over.
This bear/pig was in front of a shop that we did not actually enter, but it was still eyecatching enough to warrant a photo:
