The "motto" on the front of the menu states: "We believe: Nothing beats fresh-squeezed orange juice A Bloody Mary should make you say wow! Bacon makes everything better Good food doesn't come from a can Local bakers make the BEST bread" They source their bread from a local bakery and it is delicious. I didn't try the Bloody Mary, but...

Eat here before getting in the slopes. Great, fresh food that's not overpriced. Quaint little eatery that's perfect for a quick, satisfying bite.

Went here twice during our recent trip to Okemo. Ate breakfast foods both times-they have a great selection of breakfast items with interesting combinations. Egg nog pancakes, omelet with apples and bacon, a poutine dish that while loaded with calories was delicious. First day I had an amazing bloody Mary with bacon, asparagus, celery and olives. Second day was a... More

Great for with a large variety, for vegans as well. Great fresh eggs and fresh Avocado. Very nice service. Did not like the strong smell, better ventilation would be nice.

Your typical VT breakfast shop. Full of fresh breakfast smell and coffee. The sausage gravy is a must. Order it and pour it on everything.

Came for a basic breakfast. Was pleasantly surprised with a new menu. I had the build your own omelette. My son had the home made pop tart. Worth another look for the new menu! Thank you to the owners for changing it up

Fabulous breakfast spot. We are early risers so we got there when it opened. I had the cinnamon bun french toast and my husband had the eggs benedict . Both were delicious and portions were substantial . In fact, the french toast could have easily been shared and still would have made a most satisfying breakfast. We will definitely return... More

If you are staying in Ludlow you have to eat here. What you want to do is go on a weekend and get the Crab-cake Benedict. It was a huge portion but was so good I wolfed it all down. I'm still kind of full and its been a couple of days. Very friendly wait staff. Nice place for breakfast... More

My wife and I had breakfast here as we'd already tried Cafe at Delight. The food was very good, service was good and the place was bright, airy and warm. Restrooms were clean and it was a nice experience overall. They do take plastic, which is nice but I will say the prices were a bit on the higher side.... More
