Looks good to me!

The Very Small Donut Company is actually in "The Big Picture Theater and Cafe". We did not get to try the donuts but they looked very tasty.

You can only find these donuts at the Big Picture Theater and Cafe and they're small, but packed full of mapley sweet goodness. Go early - they may sell out by mid day (and if they sit out - they tend to get stale quickly). Kind of pricey but yummy!

Interesting small restaurant in the same building as a movie theater. We were there on a Wednesday night and they had a jazz band playing very nice music. Menu has a good variety. We had the butternut squash soup which was very good, my husband had the bourbon cheeseburger and I had the crab cake, both came with a small... More

we were a little confused by the two different names - but this is the restaurant attached to the theater (and yes, you can order food and have it served in the movie). Very fun, surprisingly good and very affordable!

They are actually called the "BIG PICTURE CAFE * THEATER." Yes, Arthur can really turn out great food every time. Other cooks are ok, but Arthur and Amanda are the stars of the kitchen. They serve breakfast until 3 PM daily. Lunch is available from 10 AM thru 3 PM. Some of the "Mexican" specials are tasty and refreshing, but... More

We always expect slow service. The servers are attentive, polite, and plesant. The slow down is in the kitchen which small. Menu choices are wide and interesting. Entree specials are dependable with fresh meats and vegs. Baked goods amaze. Try the double chocolate cake if available. Thank heavens for super coffee, and also great expresso and lattes. Beer is fresh,... More

Came up to VT to go skiing and the shop was open! New owners painted and cleaned up the shop. They said they hoped to be open 6days a week by summer. The maple donuts are fabulous and they plan to add more bakery items to the menu. We had a Valley BLT for lunch and it was great!

No problems with the food or the delicious little maple donuts, but.....the place is never open. I guess we hit it during their summer hiatus. We had a great sandwich on Sat. when we arrived in the quite little town...then, closed on Sun..OK...closed Monday. Came Tues morning, we got there at 8am, with another guy waiting, the sign says open... More
