You can go here for a casual lunch and sit on the patio in the summer time and watch the otter creek flow by or go for dinner and enjoy an upscale meal. The dinning room is on the small side but that makes it intimate. Have had various meals here and you can not go wrong with anyone of... More

Just had a great brunch n a small restaurant adjacent to the local waterfall. Excellent service & food. My wife had a custom made omelet that was perfect. I had their roasted garlic & potato soup with the quiche of the day. Both dishes were perfection. Well worth repeat visits.

This restaurant is a bit off the beaten path in Middlebury, but found it using trip advisor and chose it due to ratings on trip advisor. The host greeted us right away and asked our preference on a couple seating options. Our server, Kate, was knowledgeable about the local beers to try and she was very friendly. We had a... More

This little café literally sits on the river that runs through Middlebury. It's off the beaten path of downtown but very easy to get to. Highly recommend the organic, locally sourced chicken they serve...best I have ever had. That's what brought me back. Had a wonderful salad for lunch.

Fun spot, right on Otter Creek. We ate on the patio and watched the kayakers while waiting for our food. Food and service were very good. Would certainly plan to return next time we're in the area.

Great service, the waitresses hustled, crowded. Excellent food, always. A little noisy inside, great outside. Love being by the river, The best food in Middlebury.

I've had lunch dozens of times here and every time it's good.I love the options for those who don't like bread to order any of their salads (I love the Fatoush) and then the sandwich toppings to go on top. Yum! Great selection of local beers on tap and some wine is fun and service is always fast and helpful.... More

Great food and there is a patio on Otter Creek where you can see the falls. Very popular cafe so be ready to wait for a seat and then for your food.
