I know this restaurant well and have eaten there many, many times. The food is excellent but not overly fancy and prices are reasonable. The owner, Diane McCarthy, is usually on site and may pay your table a visit to say hello.

Been twice now, one for breakfast and once for lunch. Food is good, service fast but pleasant. Prices are reasonable for Stowe. Best I can equate it to is a good diner. Be aware that they do not take credit cards. They do have an ATM in the entrence for your convenience.

The French toast is very thick and cooked perfectly. The Cabot butter, maple syrup and apple cider top off the local food. Simple breakfast was delicious. Locals are here, they're welcomed like it's Cheers. Cash or check only. Great breakfast and thank you fir supporting the Weekend of Hope!

After many years visiting Stowe, we finally stopped in...and can understand why there is always a lineup to get in. A super breakfast - corn beef has breakfast / pancakes and sausage...both excellent meals...

Last came here 14years ago....it's hardly changed at all!!! Still the same fabulous choice of hearty breakfasts. Love the build-your-own scrambled eggs, I added smoked salmon, avocado and spinach....perfect! There's almost too much choice! The maple sticky oaty scones are yummy. I would have given it 5/5 but the cappuccino let it down, not too good unfortunately should have gone... More

Years ago a local told us about this family restaurant, and we have been enjoying it ever since. The staff have been there for many years & are part of the friendly charm of this place, as well as the wooden booths.

Well located. Excellent belly busting breakfast. Friendly service and good food. Suggest you try the french toast (specialty breads made in house). Great value. Bring cash, no credit.
