Liquid Art Eatery & Coffeehouse
Updated: Feb 4
This week, Zach and I were finally fortunate enough to have a night out together without the kids. Traveling with one or all of them is great, but it’s been a very long time since we’ve had the chance to just relax at dinner for a couple of hours. We DEFINITELY chose the right place.
The plan was to find a small cafe type place where we might be able to enjoy a drink, and sit and read. We found the perfect place, but never even pulled our books out, because what we did find was even better! The establishment is called Liquid Art Eatery & Coffeehouse. The atmosphere in their outdoor dining area was perfect, and they have really made the most of the Covid restrictions. Instead of a normal week by week menu, they change their dinner menu each week, and it is travel themed. They call it their “Vacation Menu”. This visit was themed for Greece. There were mussels, Spanakopita, Antipasto, Greek Salad with Filet Mignon, and Melomakarona Cookies, amongst others.
The charcuterie plate was wonderful, we enjoyed some sage cheese, along with fig jam, fruits, and delectable meats and sausages. This paired very nicely with our first round of delicious drinks, a blueberry lemondrop and a raspberry limoncello.
Our next round was recommended by our wonderful server, Jess. A strawberry shortcake and a firetini. We were half expecting the firetini to be some sort of cinnamon concoction, but it was very creative. It was made with passionfruit puree and their own habanero infused vodka. It was hot, but in a way that forced it to be sipped and enjoyed fully. While we enjoyed these, we also ordered the restaurant's last order of spanakopita. The spinach tasted very fresh, and the pastry was perfectly flaky.
To close out the evening, we decided a bit of dessert was definitely in order. We definitely had to try the featured cookies. Who can resist a cookie with honey, cognac, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla? Being the peanut butter lovers we are, we had to give the peanut butter pie a taste as well. Both desserts were lovely, even though we couldn't bring ourselves to finish them.
The food was great, the drinks were even better, and the company was the best yet. Not only did we have a chance to talk a bit with Jess and Kelly, who took care of us for the evening, but we also met two women sitting at the next table. Anne and Leigh were both kind and also very helpful. They gave us a great deal of information on how to spend our next two weeks in Vermont, recommending numerous places we’d never had thought of. We truly enjoyed their company and their conversation. In fact, we are looking forward to returning for dinner again this week to talk with them some more.
Liquid Art is definitely going to earn our 5+ star rating, and that’s not just because we got to enjoy our time without chasing Piper around. If you are ever in the area, this is a must visit, and it’s worth even taking a bit of a drive to get there.
