Your Next Stop Pawlet StationBy SARA WIDNESS | December 25,2012
PROVIDED Your Next Stop Pawlet Station has opened for breakfast and lunch.Your Next Stop Pawlet Station on School Street in Pawlet Village is a new iteration of a breakfast place that operated here some years ago.
Over the years, the space housed other businesses until co-owners Sherrie Baker and Jami Panoushek scrubbed and painted it back into a breakfast and lunch eatery with 37 indoor seats; outdoor seating will be available during warmer seasons.
“We’ve really just done a lot of cleaning and painting and a little plumbing,” said Baker. “Some of the equipment was (already) here.”
A typical breakfast, Baker said, might include homemade corned beef hash, sausage gravy over buttermilk biscuits, and blueberry pancakes; eggs Benedict are served on Sundays and holidays.
Lunch fare includes a Mettowee chicken sandwich with a grilled chicken breast, roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, pesto, fresh spinach and cheddar cheese on a toasted French baguette. Hand-formed burgers and fresh-cut onion rings are specialties. Muffins and donuts are offered daily, as are cakes and homemade pies.
By December, Baker expects to be selling prepared foods such as homemade chicken pot pies and dinners to go. The staff of six also cater at the restaurant and in private homes.
The business partners are also the chefs. Baker has been a chef in the area for more than two decades: she worked at The Buttery in the Jelly Mill in Manchester Village, and most recently at a Manchester Center restaurant carrying her name. Panoushek, who graduated from the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, began working for Baker four years ago.
Your Next Stop Pawlet Station is located at 50 School Street, Pawlet Village, VT 05761. The telephone number is 802.325.2503. Hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.MORE IN Battenkill Business Briefs
