Small roadside breakfast/lunch spot at the base Woodford Mountain, who's specialty is their giant pancakes. Only about ten tables inside, and there is usually a wait. Everything was prepared well, from the eggs to the pancakes. I personally got the "lumberjack" breakfast. The pancake that's part of the lumberjack is not as big as the individual large pancake you can... More

Try their amazing omelettes and pancakes served on a pizza tin--really! A friend who knows the town inside and out recommended it, and how right he was.

I have eaten here before and remember the food being excellent. However, that was quite some time ago. I recently stopped here on my way from Brattleboro to Bennington. It is one of the first places to stop when coming down from Wilmington. I really needed to use the restroom and this was my only purpose for stopping. I walked... More

Thanks for the review on using my restrooms which are reserved for sit down customers only. Signs are posted on the front door when you enter & also on the front window. First you were the 10-15th person that came into my restaurant to use my restrooms & not purchase a single item. Grant it you said you would purchase... More

My family of four got whacked for $80 for breakfast including the 20% for the tip. Food was good, but nothing to write home about. The atmosphere was that of your typical diner. We did not have to wait for a table, however, take that for what it is worth.

Our group of six stopped in to eat a wonderful breakfast on a Sunday morning and enjoyed great food and cheerful banter... From omelettes to pancakes, it's all there & tasty too!

You know how you order sausage gravy and they bring you white sauce with one or two tiny chunks of sausage? Not here. Their gravy is full of sausage and served with a patty of sausage. Great home fries too. That's Papa's eggs Benedict and the others Benedict choices looked great also, the corned beef hash was real, fresh, made... More

Owned by Kathy for the last 5 years. Kathy had her hand in with everything. Always friendly and lovely. The good is home made and fresh. Pancakes come on a pizza pan. Omlets are huge and fluffy. The corn beef and has is home made. Kathy has a gold mine here!

We decided to break away from our usual favorite place and were not happy. Silverware was dirty, coffee was boiling hot. 2 adult meals and a kids meal with drinks was over $ 47.00 plus tip. Not a good deal for lunch. Salad was advertised as having all different veggies on it, but came with lettuce, meat and cheese. Not... More

After a weekend of disappointing food on Stratton Mountain we were thrilled to eat here. The BLT really hit the spot, and the french fries were also excellent. The waitress was friendly and really took good care of us. The iced coffee wasn't very good, but otherwise recommended.

This used to be a go-to spot for us but not so much anymore. Food is still good but the service has declined and the prices are WAY too high now. $36 for sandwiches and coffee is too steep for this couple. Still a good place but no longer a great one. We probably won't go back.
