Good coffee, Oatmeal wild blueberry pancakes, omelet with spiral cut ham and fresh local cheddar, Eggs Benedict with bacon, Mediterranean omelet. All were very good and presented very well. The service was knowledgeable and attentive. Highly recommend. Also open for lunch and... More

The food here is amazing! I visited with my family on a Sunday afternoon and we had a mix of breakfast and lunch foods and all were delicious. The waffles taste like a decadent dessert. The salad I had was wonderful, with pieces of flavorful chicken, bacon, and good quality vegetables. (I'm normally not a fan of chicken, but this... More

Before moving to Peterborough in July, I visited The Stage for a meal at least weekly for about a year. One day I even had 2 meals there. The bartender Sue is the absolute best! My friend Sean is a frequent customer and she treats him and everyone who comes in with kindness. Love this place! I still try to... More

Lovely atmosphere. An interesting collection of famous people and their autographs adorn the walls. Located in the center of a charming town.

If you find this helpful please click helpful below. This restaurant was charming, slightly dated, very warm and family friendly. It seems to be a common place for the people who live in town. It was busy. The food was not completely fresh but you could see some of the menu was and or they were heading in that direction.... More

My husband and I enjoy going out to breakfast on Sundays and for several years we have really tried to like The Stage. Sad to say it is the best option in town but still falls short of the mark in many ways. Pros: clean, large brunch menu, knowledgeable and mostly friendly staff Cons: dark space, loud, weak coffee, food... More

We are sorry you didn't enjoy your visit to The Stage Restaurant this past weekend. We take great pride in our Sunday Brunch and never like to hear we fell short of a customers expectation. I would like state however, that we do use a mild yellow cheddar cheese in our omelettes and we prepare our fruit salad with fresh... More

Our waiter Jimmy was extremely attentive and personable. The food was very good and priced competitively. They have a nice selection of items on their menu - I went with... More

We stopped in after over hearing someone in a shop in downtown Keene talk about a wonderful Pumpkin Martini they had so we inquired since we're from PA. Since it was during their Pumpkin Festival it was packed so we just made it in for a drink. Sue was a great bartender and did inform us she makes a mean... More
