About Us

white birch trees


Nestled in the heart of downtown Wilmington Vermont, Alpenglow Bistro exudes a feeling of warmth,  friendliness, and a sense of belonging which guests experience in our cozy and sumptuous mountain abode.


Our menu feels like a slice of the Alps in the Green Mountains with influences from Switzerland, Germany, Austria and France. Enjoy our delectable drink menu including cafe favorites, international single malt whiskey, cognac and ports.

For dessert: strudel, anyone?

Mountain scenes adorn the walls, while soft fabrics dress the comfy chairs. Our fireplace lounge provides a cozy respite from the cold, and in the warmer months our street-level patio invites guests to relax, sip champagne and watch the world go by!


Our Vision

Susan Motyl-Smith, owner of Alpenglow Bistro, has poured her heart into creating an inspired Alpine atmosphere with family and friendship at its core.

The word Alpenglow refers to the rosy pink light of the rising or setting sun seen on high snowy mountains. This natural phenomenon is frequently seen on the Alps at sunrise and sunset.

The Alps run through many European countries including Switzerland, Italy, France, Austria and Germany. Our cuisine highlights these various regions with a Vermont flair. We look forward to having you experience this culinary journey with us!

We look forward to creating memories with you.
