Came here on a Sunday morning, waited about 7 or 8 minutes for a table. The service was great, everyone was very nice. The food was delicious and really well priced. They only take cash, so that is something to keep in mind. But overall really loved everything about this place it's a super cute diner with really great food.

Loved the feel of this authentic Irish restaurant that excels in al things lunch and breakfast. But to me breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So make sure you visit to get your fill of thick French Toast, good coffee, superb eggs and toast.

long lines during the morning hours of a busy weekend (new years) but well worth it. Great portion sizes for the price. Service is friendly but nothing spectacular, manager however was such a nice guy. Would definitely recommend to those looking for THE breakfast place in Stowe.

This restaurant is as close as you can come to eating in a friend's kitchen. It is consistently warm and welcoming and we have always gotten a great breakfast. The menu features really healthy, home style food but leaves room for amazing fresh baked breads, muffins and scones. As with any great restaurant it can get very crowded but breakfast... More

This restaurant seems to do a lot of local business. Staff was friendly. I had a breakfast that came with 2 pancakes and they were great. I'm not sure if the were buttermilk or buckwheat or a combo of both but they had real flavor. My only complaint is the Vermont Syrup container was not enough to cover the cakes... More

Went to McCarthy's in Stowe many times as a kid and recently went back for a delicious breakfast while on a weekend away. The food, service and local, Vermont, atmosphere can't be beat! Would recommend to everyone traveling in and around Stowe Vermont.
