Dan’s Diary:  The Rainy Day Restaurant

Rural Intelligence BlogsYou know how it is: It’s another rainy day, and your plans are shot so you think, Let’s go out for lunch. Caffe Pomo d’Oro in West Stockbridge is an ideal spot because it is light and airy even on the grayest day. You can watch the lightning and clouds collide with the mountains through the oversized paned windows and a skylight helps lighten the mood. Chef/owner Scott Cole has been happily feeding locals and summer people in this reclaimed train station for 16 years with a European-style menu that relies on the best ingredients available. Sandwiches (such as salami with roasted red peppers and provolone, $8.95) are served on yeasty Rock Hill Bakehouse bread, and the gazpacho ($5.50) is like drinking in the essences of a local vegetable garden.
Rural Intelligence Food  On weekends, there can be a wait for Cole’s justifiably famous pancakes served with Ioka Valley Farm maple syrup ($7.50) and oatmeal offered with an array of toppings ($.7.50).  There’s expertly made lattes and a wide variety of loose teas, which makes Caffe Pomo d’Oro a great place to linger until the clouds pass. Of course, the restaurant is just as delightful on a sunny day, when you can sit outside at umbrella-shaded cafe tables.

6 Depot Street, West Stockbridge;  413.232.4616
