Delicious in a tranquil setting

Stopped here on a motorcycle ride for brunch. YUM. The cocktails were finely crafted and the food was fresh and delicious.

We invited friends to join us out for dinner while visiting Middlebury. The view was great but the food was mediocre in general. Two pluses were the fresh clams appetizer and the creme brûlée dessert.

Chicken Salad sprinkled with cheap curry powder does not make a "Curry Chicken". Lazy...the cooks should be ashamed of themselves. The location is excellent unfortunately the food does not match the scenery.

In town just for a night and tried this based on Trip Advisor reviews. Good choice. It sits on a stream just below a nice set of falls and the atmosphere on the patio is wonderful in August. Service attention was prompt and the other diners were clearly having a fine time so the whole feel in the place was... More

The setting is excellent and the atmosphere is delightful , inside and out. The food has been reliably very good for decades. The selections are fresh, tasty and not overbearing. Staff is always welcoming and a pleasant dining and socializing experience is certain.

We had a delicious and relaxing lunch on a Saturday at the Storm Cafe; I was so happy with the setting on the outside deck, it was so nice to sit outside yet not on a road. The view of the water is pretty, and the deck very comfortable. The food was outstanding, I had a tasty greek salad and... More

This place was recommended by a local, so as visitors, we thought it would be a sure thing. Not! The inside seating was really cramped and the place was so hot we could barely breathe. They had all the doors and windows open (on a 90 degree day) and an air conditioner running over by the kitchen door. My companion... More

Outstanding choices for lunch, dinner very good too. Service can be slow, so go to enjoy the view when not in a hurry. One of the very best in Middlebury.
