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

The pancakes are huge! They come out on pizza plates, with a pizza cutter. We have breakfast here every few months when we are in Bennington. Can't say that we have ever had a bad breakfast - pancakes, omelettes, egg sandwiches - all delicious. The people are friendly and make you feel at home.

We were out for a drive Sunday morning. Our usual spot in downtown Bennington was full so we thought we'd try something different for a change. We had eaten here when it was an earlier version and had found it enjoyable. There were many cars in the lot so we thought it must be ok. It was, just. The special... More
