Side Dishes: Leftover food news

Passersby in Fairfax may have noticed a “for rent” sign in the window of the former Vermont Breakfast Company on Main Street.

When the restaurant opened roughly a year ago, owner John Foley said he hoped to expand the Vermont Breakfast Company concept to Burlington and Montpelier.

The eatery closed in January. Foley could not be reached for comment.

Waterbury Center’s Center Bakery and General Store closed its doors last weekend. Owner Perrin Williams says she’s busy with her other venture, Vermont Cake Studio, as well as caring for her toddler, Maya.

Williams won’t limit her baking to fancy wedding cakes, though. She’ll continue to sell her pastries, cakes, sandwiches and soups wholesale to local businesses, including Squash Valley Produce, Sunflower Natural Foods and Muddy Paw Coffee.

And, on April 10, Williams’ baked goods will be back on sale in her old Waterbury spot when a new tenant reopens the café and market under a new name.
