Went back again and again for breakfast. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Reasonably priced and always good. Paid double for far inferior food at other places in Stowe. Will definitely be back.

This is a great spot for weekend brunch/breakfast. We came here the Sunday of our weekend in Stowe (it was recommended by someone we met in the ski lift), and I only wish I had heard about it earlier. The food was great. I had the special which included eggs and pumpkin French toast. The staff was super friendly, and... More

Stopped here for lunch with my family, and it has a very lively atmosphere. Our waitress was super friendly, and we all enjoyed our sandwiches and burgers, and especially our root beer floats. Great place for families to have lunch.

We have been here a few times and the breakfast menu is extensive, and everything we have had from pancakes and omelets to Reubens have been great. The service is good, friendly staff, and bakery items are awesome.

McCarthy's is the perfect breakfast and lunch place. Always filled with locals as well as "in-the-know" visitors. The food is always excellent home cooked fare, the staff as well as the owners feel like family. Can't recommend it enough!

For a great meal and a nice family atmosphere head to McCarthys! The corned beef sandwich is one of my favorites, you won't leave hungry!

when you see many locals eating there. This has been the case with McCarthys. They have been in business for 40 years, so must be doing something right. The location is easy to find and there is plenty of parking. The breakfast and lunch menus have something for everyone and they have interesting specials. Last time we were there we... More

Great fresh breakfast. Went back the next day for lunch. Cash only charming waitstaff. Family run Irish themed breakfast spot. Their own smoked bacon. Good endless coffee. Great Cobb salad. Carbo load before and after ski. Or just eat.
