I've reviewed the restaurant in the separate listing under "Restaurants" (hint, hint). We took the kids to see a movie and it was a great experience. Popcorn (see title) is outstanding. Theaters are very laid back (comfy chairs and sofas) and you can bring a grown-up beverage in with you.

We go to the Big Picture quite often and it is always consistent, though slow. it is also great to be able to attend the movies and have drinks and food that you can bring in with you. They even have couches in one of the theaters.

Excellent Autumn salad. Server copied the ingredients for me but mine was not as good. Small but would be worth a wait. Very friendly, made me feel like a local.

The food and service was great. We liked the healthy choice options on the menu, and there were some good beer choices as well. We arrived at our B&B later in the evening. The innkeeper suggested this restaurant, and we were pleased with it.

We had brunch here and the food arrived rather quickly however my Avocado BLT arrived without avocado? Also portions on my husbands plate were really small. We were given small glasses of water at the start and never offered refills until after he took our empty plates. Oh well!

It was delightful. Our server was cute, very accommodating & took great care of us. We just happened to be there for a lousy movie...

This place is very charming and in downtown Waitsfield Vermont. The breakfast was yummy and the coffee was great. They also have really nice looking pastries. Make sure you go tot he Waitsfield Farmers Market on Saturday. Little pricey but everything is pricey in Vermont.

Overall the food is usually excellent . Service is good but can be a little but slow at times. I have eaten breakfast and lunch there on several occasions. Love the local offerings! Would have to say it is my favorite breakfast spot in the valley and one of my favorite lunch spots!
