Great view, great food, and great service. What more do you need? This place was a fun find for my wife and I when we were strolling along the main drag in North Conway on Sunday morning. A steep set of winding stairs takes you to the second floor restaurant, where if you're lucky enough to get a couple of... More

We stopped here on a whim and we are so glad that we did. We were able to sit right off and not wait for a table. We sat out on the porch with a view of the train station and mountains. My kids thought it was great. The menu has delicious options. I had the grilled chicken pesto sandwich... More

Stopped in for breakfast and were greeted warmly. Served promptly and with a smile. Food was good and reasonably priced. All and all nice cozy place.

We were here for breakfast last year. Omelettes were delicious and more than plentiful, with endless coffee. Today, we returned for lunch, which was even better. Three of us each enjoyed homeade vegatable tomato soup, which was fabulous. Maine course - two 'lobsta' rolls and a 'lobsta' benedict. Awesome meal! We got it! This is a MUST visit restaurant in...

We were in North Conway for the 1:30 train. We wanted a quick lunch prior to departure. The pancakes with blueberries were delicious along with the wraps. The wait staff was a little frazzled but we would recommend and go again

My boyfriend and I were visiting North Conway and we were going to get sandwiches to-go from this little cafe we saw, but at the last minute we decided to eat them there. It's very tiny and you have to walk up stairs to get to the cafe on the 2nd floor. We were surprised when we were asked if... More

This itty-bitty little cafe was a good find. The decor so cheerful and inviting. It's a tight little spot and I would think a party of six would be max at one table. I think it is definitely more adult oriented than for kids as well. It looks like a small one Chef kitchen which you get a peek at... More

We ate at The Stairway Cafe after visiting Diana's Baths (must go see these waterfalls and get your toes wet). Our meals were delicious. My daughter had S'more pancakes, my husband had an egg dish that he loved, my son had the best turkey burge he's ever had and I had grilled apple, bacon and goat cheese. The service was... More

This little place is so cute inside, it is on the second floor and it overlooks a mountain. The food and service are great too. I definitely recommend.
