Twice for breakfast

A good breakfast place and very fast service. Would go back again. If you like to be in and out so you can sight see, then this is the place!! You can order, get your food and be out quick or you can just relax and take your time.

The food selection was interesting with lots of vegetarian items, but the staff seemed completely unmotivated. We waited at the door for 15 minutes before anyone spoke to us. After our meal was put on the table, they brought the check immediately. We never got any more coffee or any more attention at all!

Friend and I ate here for lunch. Both of our sandwiches were good and the menu has a lot to offer. The atmosphere was strange. When we went there was less than 10 people in the dining room and it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. My friend and I felt like we couldn't even have a... More

My husband had the grilled roast beef on toasted rye. I had the oven-baked turkey with horse radish on toasted rye, which was the special of the day. Both were delicious. The food was served quick and the wait staff was efficient and friendly. The price was reasonable and it is on the main road. Visit the next door little... More

This is a small shop, but turnover and service were quick. I liked that you get your omelet any way you liked and could even experiment with creative pairings. The bacon was crisp, the sausage was seasoned well. The potatoes could have been crisper, and soft real butter for the English muffin would've helped. The window flower boxes were a... More

It was a little more expensive than I typically expect from a breakfast place but the menu is excellent and the food was very good as well. I tend to like omelettes for breakfast and they had a nice selection available. They also had some very interesting options including avocado and a cilantro pesto... Beyond just the standards. This is... More

I thought this place was ok, but not really anything special. Next time I am in town, I will check out one of the other restaurants!

This place is small but the turnover seemed quick so we waited no more than about three minutes for a table. The food was great! The menu is full of creative breakfast meals to satisfy anyone's preferences. They serve real VT syrup with their waffles and it is very good. A couple of us ordered the "Cilantro". It was an...

My fiancé and I visited The Hatchery on a Friday morning around 11:00 am. There was one other table seated at the time and we were seated quickly by the waitress. The friendly waitress brought us coffee and water promptly and came back in a short time for our orders. My fiancé got an omelette with cheddar and hash which... More

This is what it is. Great breakfast, hot coffee, great service! Affordable prices too. We ate there twice and enjoyed it both days.
