The food and people make your eating experience enjoyable. My oldest son and I ate the oatmeal French toast. It is absolutely the best I've ever had. The waitress was so sweet she made an extra pancake for my 7 year old son that rarely eats anything. He ate 2 pancakes, 3 sausage links and an egg. If you're a... More

great place for breakfast. just what we were looking for. simple old fashioned eggs, pancakes, waffles, etc. fresh, prepared well. nice staff, good prices. food comes quickly once your seated but if you go in season go early or be prepared to wait. very popular place with both visitors and locals.

My daughter and I stopped in on our last day in Stowe. We were welcomed by friendly smiling faces. Coffee was brought to us promptly. (I am sure like most people the fast cup of coffee is top priority.) Here I am in an Irish establishment that makes their own corned beef hash. Imagine there was something else on the... More

We went here a few times on our trip in Stowe. The prices were good with a wide food selection and it was kid friendly. My only advice is to not offer kids chocolate chip pancakes when they just ask for plain pancakes. My son had no idea you could get chocolate chip pancakes and we weren't happy about him... More

We went here twice for breakfast while in Stowe for a ski weekend. Always like a restaurant with a lot of choices on the menu. We tried the breakfast quesidillas which were very good and not too spicy and the French toast was impressive. Found the blueberry pancakes to be a little flat, and not very fluffy. Prices were better... More

This is a locals joint, tucked away behind the main drag. We had eggs benedict and Irish hash, it's (duh)an Irish theme place, very family friendly, and packed from 6 am on. The food was good and the value for price did not disappoint. It's not fancy, and a bit loud, but they do a good job with the service,... More

This is place is great if you like breakfast at lunch time. Service is very fast and the eggs and toast are very well cooked. We also split a cinnamon bun to die for! Only thing we didn't like was the coffee--not very good, and no free refills. Prices are also very reasonable. Beware that it can get very noisy... More

We had breakfast there, coffee, pancakes, yogurt with granola and omelette. Nice ambience. Family-friendly. Small part is restaurant is dedicated to sales of local art pieces.

Several people told us this was the best breakfast around, and we were really pleased with the food and service. Lots of gluten-free choices, local ingredients, no skimping on things like fake maple syrup and poor quality meats. Definitely try it!

Title gives it all away but make sure you bring cash...no credit cards accepted. Breakfast served all day...I dint think I've ever ventured past the breakfast menu, the egg quesadillas are the best & kids love the Mickey Mouse pancakes
