Lovely restaurant next to the Falls in Middlebury

A friend and I met for lunch at this restaurant. I hadn't been here in a few years, but it is even better than I remember it.

When I want to do something special, this is the place I eat. Every taste is delicious. Soups. Desserts. Main meal. It is not the place for a private conversation, though. Tables are very close together.

I visited the Storm Cafe for lunch last summer while en route to the Berkshires. After descending a steep hill to the quaint Frog Hollow Mill, we were escorted to a lovely table on the patio overlooking Otter Creek. As it was a hot day, two of the three members in our party opted for salads. The house hummus was... More

This is a charming little cafe. The food was wonderful. The roasted garlic and potatoes soup is absolutely delicious. My daughter is gluten free and there was plenty for her to choose from. We went for lunch and the service was excellent. The female service was very friendly. We had quiche, salads, sandwiches, and specials and everyone loved the food.... More

We were here during Columbus Day week for dinner, and we were able to eat outside in the tented area. It's very pretty out there next to the river and decorated with little white lights. The food was good, but, to me, not exceptional. Actually, I had the fall salad which was great. The entrees were just ok. I wanted... More

Some reviews complained about the service. We were here on a busy Middlebury weekend and everything was excellent. I liked it all, From the hot local cider, to the hearty soup, tasty sandwiches, local beers, and one of the best banana cream pies I have ever tasted. Good value in a simple setting.

I had lunch with two friends. All the tables outside were taken so we were seated indoors. When we asked if we could move outside when a table opened up, the hostess said "No". Not very accommodating.

We were passing thru Middlebury on our way to Stowe and went to their farmers market and walked around town. Decided to have lunch here and were very pleasantly surprised by the Storm Cafe. We ate a very nice lunch on the patio overlooking the river, service was good and not hurried even though they were very busy. There was... More

I loved this place and the atmosphere was charming. We sat inside and it was intimate and romantic. Great food and the server was so nice. I'd come back here again.
