A Bit of Nostalgia

Every year we return to Stowe, we also return to the Malt Shop. The food is always good no matter what you otder. When you enter it feels like you are going back in time. I do feel that this past visit the prices seem to have moved up more than expected. But besides that, it is a fun... read more

Going to this restaurant has become a tradition for us. It's so much fun! The food here is delicious and the waitstaff so friendly! This year we let the kids (ages 7-13) sit at their own table and the adults sat one table over - the restaurant is small, and it made sense. The waitress was incredible with the kids.... More

Awesome ice cream! The brownie sundae was amazing. Also, the ambience is very much the classic Americana vibe you'd expect to find in a town like Stowe: a throwback to a simpler time.

Stopped for lunch and this place only takes CASH and has an ATM inside, which they refund the fee if you need to use it for the bill. We sat outside as the inside was packed. Its a nice little patio on the left side of the building. The sandwiches, salads, and burgers were raved about from everyone in our... More

Sadly I had a disappointing meal and experience here. I loved the concept of the place - malt shakes, booths, traditional diner - but it failed to deliver. Firstly the table we sat at was not clean, there were crumbs on the table top. There was a broom and dustpan visible in the dining area which really should have been... More

Was on my way back from Burlington and needed a quick place to get a bite to eat. I ordered takeout, and they were very fast to get the order processed. Nice atmosphere, charming. Would stop again for ice cream.

LOVE this place! We come here every time we visit Stowe. Great hamburgers, sandwiches, salads, shakes, and ice cream. Cute 1950's decor. Friendly staff. A true gem in Stowe.

Way cool ! I last went into Depot street Malt shoppe in 1999 when I was last in Stowe, and it was awesome. I remember it like it was yesterday. I had a real burger, real banana milkshake and some fine home cooked fries. It was awesome. The food was great. The 50s decor, the dukebox.. I loved it and... More

This place is exactly what I picture the Soda Shops of the '40's and 50's would have been like. It's got that great vibe of casual and yet nostalgia that I love. Always order my sundae with too many toppings but I'm always accommodated and I always want to lick the glass! This is not to be missed and you... More

Popped in for a quick lunch. All had either a panini or a toastie. Food was quick and tasty. Loved the theme. Service was good. Would definitely come back.
