My parents and I were visiting family in Ludlow and they brought us to The Hatchery for lunch. It has that "hometown" feel that I personally like. It was kind of cramped/cozy, but I take that as a sign of success. The food was delicious with some imaginative items on the menu. The staff was friendly. I had the Vermont... More

To start they only take CASH. No sign or warning about not using 21st century transaction methods. That would be ok if the prices reflected keeping such a low overhead. Breakfast is about $10+ per person and it's not even passable. I know why the waitress didn't ask "how was everything". My eggs were over cooked the home fries were... More

This a small downtown breakfast and lunch spot in a village. Very friendly atmosphere and tasty, but undistinguished, fare. Everything was well prepared, but seemed to be a bit kitchy to attract the tourist trade. We thought the sandwich offerings were to be preferred because of their homemade bread.

The Hatchery has been serving up great breakfast and lunch for at least 25 years I know of.Some of the same people still work there as when i first walked in in 1993.

We had an early morning breakfast at the Hatchery. The staff was friendly and service amazingly fast! My family had a multitude of items including the French toast, breakfast sandwiches and omelettes. Everyone's favorite were the home fries, fresh made, seasoned to perfection and topped off with scallions. Great meal. :) PS, it is on Main Street in Ludlow and... More

This little breakfast place bakes their own bread. They use local ingredients and have all the usual favorites. I found the corned beef hash to be very good. The dining room is small and the tables are close together.

When in Ludlow, go to breakfast where the locals go...always something interesting on the menu. Located at the main cross streets of Ludlow, you can see everything that's going on in town while you are eating your meal.

Good little breakfast place. Nothing out of the ordinary. We get the usual scrambled eggs with toast & meat choice. I am a big coffee drinker and it's average.

While ziplining at Okemo our tour was stopped due to lightening. We wondered into town for local fare. The shop didn't turn us away at a few minutes before closing. They were friendly and the food was good
