Food here is good. Large portions and home style foods. This is a good place to eat when you are hungry but do not expect anything gourmet, just good old fashioned home style cooking.

Sophia's Cafe was recommended and we went there twice at very normal eating times and it was closed. Not many places to dine in Shelburne so this caused us problems. I won't be trying the 3rd time.
