Lunch

Friendly outgoing staff. My burger was cooked exactly like I asked. My sweetheart's grilled ham and cheese was loaded. Homemade potato salad was yummy. Have beer and wine was a plus. Would like to have breakfast there some time because the selections looked really good. Kathy and Bill show !!

We were not really impressed with this place as other folks seem to be. We stopped for lunch, the brgers were mediocre at best. The fries were horrible, cold, undercooked, greasy and soggy. I will say the waitress was friendly and efficient. They only take cash but they dont let you know that upfront. They do have an atm, I... More

OMG! awesome! Stopped for Breakfast on an overnight stay in VT. Papa Pete's, pleasant staff that went out of their way when it came to service. They took the time to explain, and listen to what our needs were. Everyone in our party had nothing but GREAT things to say about Papa Pete's. My husbands omelet was large and fluffy... More

Very friendly, excellent service, even better food. If you are gluten free, bring your own bread and they'll toast it for you so you can have toast. The Breakfast burrito is wonderful, really, there isn't a bad mean at Papa Pete's. Wonderful Restaurant but get there early because literally EVERYONE knows how good it is.

Spotted Papa Pete's on a road trip round New England and called in planning just a coffee. Tempted by the hot dogs and a beer called "Shed". What's not to like!

Food is excellent! Both visits this year we missed out on the hash, but the omelettes and the lumberjack breakfast were fantastic. Get there early if you want to try the hash. Strongly recommend. Staff is always friendly and generous with the coffee!

The waitresses were attentive the coffee and food was delicious and it was the cutest little place. It is recommended that you make a reservation... More

The kitchen sink omelet is huge and very good. Definitely a local diner with all the dinner feeling. Very friendly. It does look like a shack but good inside.

If you saw this little shack you may just drive past - Don't do it. I found this on trip advisor & it had good reviews. When we saw it we were not sure it is literally a little shack. When we went in, we felt like a regular. Staff was friendly & talked with you as if you were... More
