The Bobcat Cafe

Contemporary comfort food and hand-crafted beers


Located at the heart of the Green Mountains, we have the absolute pleasure of serving homemade food that is fresh and creative alongside handcrafted beer. Our brewmaster uses high quality grains, hops and yeast to create beers that are fresh, flavorful and accessible to a variety of palates. We are excited to be a part of America's craft beer revolution and are thrilled to be able to serve some of the best beers the country has to offer.

In the kitchen, our goal is to create food that is wholesome and interesting to insure locals and visitors return often. We design our menus around the seasons and what is available in and around Addison County while borrowing techniques from a range of world cuisine. We work hard to bring quality and consistency to the table, offering food that is informal enough for a quick meal with neighbors but worthy of an important celebration.

The Bobcat Cafe and Brewery opened in 2002 as a community supported business designed to be a “third place” (a social retreat or meeting space away from home and work). Today we continue to support the community by hosting Wednesday night benefit dinners and by providing a comfortable and fun spot where neighbors and friends can meet up and enjoy a beer and a meal together.

Come check us out and enjoy!
