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.

Great food, great service and some of the best coffee in town. We always make it a point to have breakfast at the Stairway Cafe when we are in North Conway.

Walk from our inn to this cafe while in town. The food was great, the patio has a great view of main street and the prices were not too bad!

We love this unique, shabby chic place. Good food, reasonable portions (not super sized) and we love the fact they make a real effort to be environmentally friendly. It's also an excellent place to play eye-spy with the kids while you wait for your meals! It's definitely not a mainstream type of place if that is your cup of tea,... More

We eat here most mornings when in North Conway. It's our top favorite. Healthy organic or locally farmed choices. Great great staff and wonderful decor! They are great at substituting too. It may be small in size, but HUGE is a great great place to eat!!!
