We took a drive from Albany,NY to Manchester, VT yesterday to enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery. Got to Manchester and decided to get lunch. We tried numerous restaurants and found only long wait times ahead of us... we remembered passing the Little rooster Cafe and decided to stop there on our way back. It was after 2:00 and there...

This is a very nice little restaurant. The blueberry pancakes were great. Reasonably priced and good service. The locals eat here, so you know it is good.

Went to the Little Rooster Cafe on one of the mornings while in Manchester. If you want a home cooked hot and fresh breakfast to start off your day start at the Rooster !! The staff are so hospitable and the food was delicious at a reasonable price.. don't hesitate to go here..

The menu offered some very traditional items as well as some culinary uniqueness! I loved my homemade turkey burger! However, my daughter wishes there was a slightly better children's menu.

It was an average and fairly expensive lunch. We had just missed breakfast and were firmly reminded about the time! The salad was small and served with an extremely scarce and mild goat cheese. The salmon served with potatoes and beets was well cooked. Looking at other tables, it seems that the specialties of the cooks are more versed toward... More

We had a great lunch here and loved the theme. I enjoyed my "Crispy Art" salad and my husband had the special brisket sandwich. Both tasted good. The food came fast and the service was attentive. Our server gave us a verbal kids menu but I wish a little more effort was made to accomodate them considering the high price... More

When we first moved to Manchester, we saw Rachel Ray do a review of The Rooster Café on her visit here, so we decided to give it a try. Yes, it's small and you often have to wait a spell for a seat. But if Heaven serves Corned Beef Hash, the recipe came from the Rooster Café. For me, once... More
