For breakfast

The wait is long but worth it. The breakfast 🍳 is very good. You should go there for the experience.

Several people recommended Gould's to satisfy my maple syrup addiction. So I traveled from North Adams in October, about a 40 min drive and discovered they were making it fresh in the back barn. The smell was intoxicating. The owner let me sample the light variety that was currently in production and I swooned. The flavor exceeded any syrup I... More

I love maple syrup and pancakes. SO I LOVED eating here! Sitting at wood tables (made from maple trees?), and sap bucket lights overhead enhance the old timey feel of this family run business. The pancakes are light and fluffy and the maple syrup simply delicious. There is also a store you can purchase all sorts of maple related foods... More

On a leaf peeping drive my mother and I stopped in to shop and have a late breakfast. We had to wait a short while, which gave us time to watch the video on the process of making maple syrup. Breakfast was delicious and features their own syrup. They also have hot apple cider, it was delicious!!!! After breakfast we... More

Not inexpensive but worth the extra for the unique corn fritters and the tasty pancakes. All served with real maple syrup.

Gould's in Shelburne Falls, MA is a real treasure, but it is hard to find open. I finally asked. Since it is a maple sugaring operation, they are really only open in March/April, and then again during foliage season, Sept/October/. Open from 8 AM to 2 Pm. But the building is original and rustic. Expect picnic tables and benches. Steps... More

We have been going to Gould's for 45 years. We go every fall and sometimes in the spring. It's our annual family "Pickles and Pancakes" outing. The food is amazing...homemade sausage, the best pancakes ever, but it might be the homemade pickles that keeps us coming back! We often have to wait for a table, but the wonderful breakfast is...

for 40+ years we have been going to Gould's Sugar House for the best pancakes you can imagine not to mention their wonderful real maple syrup made in the Spring. They also make a great western sandwich and corn fritters are very popular! Helen Gould who is in her 80's still makes her rounds through the restaurant talking to all... More

Have been going to Gould's for the past few years and I usually take my mother and her sister since it's their birthday! Love the pickles start, I usually get 2 blueberry pancakes and Mom and her sister get the waffle, it's a personal choice, but the homemade sausage is special! This year my wife joined us and she went... More

Returning to MA always brings a stop at Gould's if the season is right. The wonderful light pancakes with the delicious, freshly boiled maple syrup is a trip not to be missed. We were fortunate on Monday to get the last open table in the restaurant. We waited a bit for our order, but it was well worth waiting for.... More
