Found this breakfast "joint" on YELP. Asked the hotel if they knew about it..YUP! So we went...glad we did! When we sat down the waitress informed us that if we were in a hurry then this wasn't the place for us! Our order would take at least a 1/2 hour! So, we said NO PROBLEM! And she was right! It...

Food was great! The gigantic pancakes really were gigantic! Served with a pizza cutter to cut up and serve! The eggs Benedict euth corned beef hash was delish! And the California Benedict abd unique and very tasty! Thr only down side was the price...about $100 for 2 adults 2 kids. Will be back if we visit Bennington again!

A great place for lunch. We ate at the counter as it was full. A fun place to sit and talk and watch the waitresses buzz about. Food was good and service great. A fun place e to take kids and show them what diners were all about.

This is just the kind of place we look for when we're on the road and wanting home cooked road food! Terrific service, too!

We are on our way out of town after a fabulous week in Vermont and this was our last stop. We left this morning in search of a great little breakfast restaurant and we found Papa Pete's. Of course we ordered the lumberjack breakfast and each is big enough for five people but we did it. Everything was cooked perfectly,... More

Stopped for lunch on the way to Cavendish. What a fabulous place. Food is very fresh. I had a cheesesteak omelette which was awesome! I've never even heard of that before. Just delicious! Easy to get to; right off the highway.

Breakfast served all day! Staff treats you like you're a regular too! In fact we saw our server that same evening at the grocery store and she stopped to say hello. We're from out of town and we felt so welcomed. Food was tasty and it didn't break our budget.

My husband, dogs and I found this place as a suggestion from BringFido.com. It was totally cute and quaint with great food. It's cash only, but not to worry there is an ATM on site. We sat out on the porch in the "pit" area (gravel ground and raised picnic tables). Our waitress Cindi was super sweet and accommodating; she... More
