Not handicapped accessible; love the stairs concept but those who cannot do stairs miss out. Food was plentiful but expensive as a breakfast place.

Came here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Great service and also great food, scrumptious omelet and Mediterranean omelet! Can't forget about the coffee that is homemade in a barn right in NH! A must stop for breakfast, as you won't regret it!

This was a great surprise. The food was better, much better & cheaper by $5.00 per lobster roll sandwich than DiMillos in Portland. It had twice as much lobster on it. This is a must see. What a great little town!!! We will go back soon! The soup was fantastic & homemade. Please stop here, you won't be sorry.

We stumbled across the Stairway Cafe whilst in North Conway. Service was quick and friendly and the food was excellent. We visited twice and sat out on the balcony on both occasions which was the perfect spot to eat and watch the world go by.

A cute hole-in-the-ceiling. You walk up a flight of stairs featuring the lyrics to Led Zep's classic "Stairway To Heaven" and arrive at a small restaurant with about a dozen tables and some very tasty breakfast options. Gotta love a restaurant that isn't afraid to pile on ham AND bacon into the middle of a French toast Monte Cristo. A... More

Recent first-time visit to Stairway for breakfast. We were not disappointed. A very varied menu (replete with game and fresh seafood) in a funky but pleasing sort of late 1960's eclectic coffee-house atmosphere. Attentive staff and great food. Anyplace that has at least one fresh lobster dish on it's breakfast menu deserves at least four stars.

We found the food itself great but it was a lengthy wait on an awkward set of stairs to get a table. By the time we were finally seated, it took about 15 minutes before a waitress ever came to take our order or even acknowledged us (after the gentleman that seated us told each waitress at least once that...

Was turned off when I found a rubber band in my salad. While one waitress apologized profusely the one who "lost" the rubber band thought it was funny. They made me a new salad, but there was way too much dressing and too much vinegar for my liking. I figured they would at least comp the salad, but they didn't.... More

Friendly service and atmosphere. Good central location. Best breakfast yet. Ideal to go to before catching the train across the way.
