Great Vermont breakfast place. Smoked applewood bacon home made corned beef hash. Had an awesome eggs Benedict special with their own cured smoked Canadian bacon. Girlfriend loved the homemade cinnamon bun. Bring cash no credit have an ATM though.

After reading all the great reviews we decided to try this place out while in Stowe. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was average. Good portions though. The decor is dated but it adds to this old icon restaurant. You have to pay by cash or cheque.

Breakfast is good at McCarthy's and their hash is awesome. The blueberry pancakes have a little crunch to them which makes them extra nice. Service is friendly and welcoming. The place is what you expect from Vermont - a good family run restaurant with good foods.

We went for breakfast based on the great reviews and were disappointed. The host that greated us wasn't friendly or inviting when we arrived. Everyone has a bad day, but when dealing with the public you need to be aware of how you are perceived on first impressions. The eggs were dry and my French toast wasn't cooked all the... More

The servers are friendly and the environment is one of a kind in Vermont, and that is saying something! Really fantastic food at amazing prices (coming from New York I always fee spoiled in Stowe when it comes to that). I wish I could be there on St. Patrick's day because based on the countdown clocks they probably do a... More

McCarthy's is conveniently located on Mountain Road not far from Stowe center. How could Belgian Waffles be so crispy yet melt in your mouth so smoothly! What a delicious breakfast option. Make sure you ask for VT produced Maple Syrup - the best ever! Everything our family ordered was delicious! Excellent taste and ample portions at very affordable prices! We... More

We have a vacation home in Stowe and frequent McCarthy's, partly for the food and partly because you can take a crowd and be served with very attentive and always cheerful staff. We recently went to Easter brunch and I had eggs "bunny"dict which had real VT sliced ham and an abundance of perfectly cooked asparagus. The staff is always... More

McCarthy's is a nice local place that has good service and fantastic food. If you are lucky enough to visit over a weekend you must try the eggs benedict. They are simply amazing and homemade! Even people in our group who normally don't like eggs benedict had major food envy! The other breakfast choices - omelets, eggs, sausage etc. were... More

McCarthy's offers by far the best breakfast and lunch in Stowe. Great funky diner decor with very welcoming, helpful, attentive staff. And the baked goods are off the chain! You might have to wait in line on a busy day, but it's well worth it, and you won't have to wait long. Bring cash, 'cause they don't do credit cards.... More
