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

We visited this place twice, two days in a row. Fresh avocado and tofu, and cilantro added to the flavor. Our servers were nice even though they could have used more helps. We had to wait longer to get a coffee refill. Overall, definitely the best breakfast in town!

Met a distant relative for lunch at his recommendation. The service was good but beyond that "average" was the operative word. The food was average. The coffee was average. The portions were average. The price, however, was a bit on the high side. But one must remember that Ludlow is a tourist (ski) town and the main street location does... More

My husband and I had the walnut pancakes with bacon. The pancakes were okay. I mean, it was pancakes with walnuts in the batter. They were good sized pancakes, and good eating, but a pancake is a pancake is a pancake.

Had breakfast here after scouring through many Trip Advisor reviews and seeing that this got some of the best. It wasn't anything special to me, and don't know why it got so many rave reviews. If you're looking for a cheap, basic breakfast you've come to the right place.
