The attention to detail is obvious. Everything fresh, beautiful paired. Their house potato soup is a must have and truly delicious. Their salads are so fresh and we've never had a bad meal here. Love that they've expanded to doing breakfasts with some favorites like eggs Benedict and pancakes with fruit, so good! The service is always good. Our server... More

We had a very nicet meal on Storm Cafe's deck. The food was good, the servers pleasant and efficient and the ambiance relaxing. A good place for lunch.

Had been waiting for the opportunity to return to the Storm Cafe. Had a delightful lunch. The menu has some interesting selections. Loved sitting outside and enjoying the beautiful day. Hoping to return soon!

The food at lunchtime is always good here. We enjoy it. Recommend it to our guests for people who want healthy fare and wonderful ambiance. Otter creek was not utilised by businesses when we first came here in 1990. It certainly is greatly in M proved now with a number of great shops and restaurants on the river.

My husband and I returned to the Storm Cafe on a recent visit to Middlebury. Unfortunately, it will be our last since we both were disappointed in the food. We were both in the mood for burgers on their familiar brioche buns but nothing was going to help the underwhelming and over-cooked beef! We were very specific with the waitress... More

This was our second visit to the Storm Cafe. The food was good but the service lacked a significant element of care. First, at 5:30, we called in a reservation for 6:45pm. At 6:30pm, we knew we would be late, we called. Our reservation was not found. Regardless, we arrived at 7:15pm. The restaurant was active on the deck, maybe... More

Nicely nestled away. We were recommended to eat here by the hotel concierge...was a nice surprise. A table by the water just before sunset. Very pretty. Menu simple. Food was very fresh and healthy. Wines selection good. A little on the expensive side for what you get in a small town. However made up for the setting.

Not just for a small town. It was fresh and tasty. We had the black bean and corn salad, a burger, a Caesar salad and the Berber sandwich. The service was good, not super attentive but they were really busy. We couldn't get a seat on the patio and didn't have time to wait for a table. Washrooms were clean.... More

We stopped here for a late lunch after a visit to the nearby Morgan Horse Farm. I enjoyed the House Hummus, a large plate of green, grilled Mediterranean vegetables and hummus-- a light yet filling lunch on a hot July day. My dining partners had the Cheese Steak, a Cuban and a Reuben--all good. The view overlooking Otter Creek creates... More
