Manchester Vermont is the mecca of breakfast. Little Rooster and several other breakfast spots all make delicious hearty breakfasts that are beautifully presented, delicious, and filling. No lunch needed before dinner. Omelette's are creative, pancakes and French toast are perfect, and wait staff are all friendly and efficient. Everything fresh and wonderful. If I could, I'd eat breakfast all day.

I had breakfast there a week ago, one of the egg specials. very good food, nice size portion. there's lots of parking there and I also think they serve a good lunch with daily specials too.

This place is awful. The service is lousy and the staff incredibly rude. I waited in line for 20 mins before they even came outside to greet me. And this all happened when there were over 4 empty tables out on the lawn. Stay away! Spend your money somewhere where people will appreciate you as customer.

After standing in line for ten minutes we were told very abruptly that they would not serve us with a dog. When we told them he was a service animal (which we carry his papers at all times) and we would gladly sit at one of their tables on the lawn, the waitress said "No. We have a sign that... More

Went for breakfast. Great dining room nicely decorated, great aervice. I had sunrise omlette and ir was amazing with sour dough toast, and cheddar topped potatoes as well as fresh squeezed orange juice. My Dad had flap Jacks and they were amazing with fresh vermont syrup. Prices were higher but so was the quality.

The local was my cousin, whose tastes I have never questioned, we like the same types of foods, which is quite the variety; and while this was for us just for breakfast, it was also just ok. We drove into town that first day and she was surprised not to see a line and said 'oh good, lets stop here'.... More

We love this place and love the food. Potato haystacks are amazing. The wait can be long but it's worth it. Outside seating option is also nice if available.
