A Yearly Tradition

We really like this small shop. We are making it a yearly tradition to have lunch here. The cash only feature makes sense to us given the outrageous charges credit card companies levy on small businesses. We've never been disappointed. The skinny frappes and "fat' frappes are very good.

The Malt Shop is ideally located in Stowe village close to stores and shops and just a short walk or drive from the new hockey rink. You can catch a great meal after the hockey in an old time ice cream shop with none of the contrived atmosphere found elsewhere. Prices are moderate, food is good and it's a comfortable... More

I'm sorry but waiting 20 minutes for a counter waitress to LOOK at you and say hello is unacceptable. Our food was in th window for 15 minutes and cold when we got it. Also forced to use an ATM because I guess this business struggles to make enough $ not to charge its customers to pay.

Thank you Benita for your feedback, I currently have a waitress on staff that will not be with us much longer. I'm sorry she ruined your visit. If you are in Stowe again there is a gift certificate at the counter with the name Benita on it. Best Regards Rachel Chevalier More

We've been to Stowe six times and have always eaten here at least once during eat visit. It is a quirky atmosphere with typical malt shop faire. We've always enjoyed our meal and service is typically friendly and good. The malts and milkshakes are good and usually more than we can drink. Sandwiches, burgers, soups, salads, grilled cheese, even chili... More

We paid out for the burger, an extra $1 for whatever the special beef was, asked for medium, it was mainly raw, the fries were rock-hard, if I'd had a hammer I could have used them as nails. The service was fine, so we left a tip ... in hindsight, shouldn't have.

We visited Stowe, Vermont to see the fall colors. We stopped in the Depot Street Malt Shop for lunch. The server was so friendly. They have a basic lunch menu, but the food is anything but basic. My husband had a pulled pork sandwich that had maple syrup that he said was absolutely delicious. We would highly recommend this restaurant... More

My husband and I liked everything about this place, it was exactly what we were looking for. Food was excellent, price was fair, staff were friendly. The decor is really fun and interesting, someone really put in a great deal of effort. They only take cash and there's an explanation on each table as to why they only take cash.... More

A cool little restaurant just off of the main street of Stowe decorated right from Happy Days with a lot of memorabilia and includes a fireplace.Perfect for breakfast but does not open until 11am on weekdays and only accepts cash. The breakfast was good and reasonably priced.
