Ate here for breakfast both days on our Stowe trip! It was really convenient that they took online orders. I loved the chocolate croissant and my husband enjoyed the egg sandwiches. The coffee was good, but a bit overpriced for what we got.

When I visit Stowe, this is one of the places I always count on for lunch. I visited this month and enjoyed my cheese sandwich, mocha, and peanut butter cookie. I especially liked the cookie, as did my wife when I delivered hers. My only...complaint would be that they should not make people sign their ipad for credit cards with their fingers right before they eat. There was not even any sanitizer nearby. Really, they should redo that pandemic procedure completely. Really, what are the odds someone will dispute the signature for next couple months? Many places have given up requiring signatures, which is wise. Some have a jar of clean pens provided to sign on screens with, etc.More

This placed looked cute and quaint but did have a line to place our order. We were then required to take it outside. Our order was placed, nothing that a top chef was needed to fulfill, and we proceeded to wait outside at the takeout...window as we were told to do. The older woman who was in charge of delivering the food through the window was very rude, asking us to move away from the window in a loud and aggressive tone after telling us to wait at the window earlier. 45 minutes went by for a sandwich and a cup of premade soup and my husband asked her when our food was going to be ready, and she went into a tirade of how busy they were and this was Stowe’s busiest weekend of the month and then proceeded to slam the window in his face, giving him no opportunity to respond with anything other than shock! We also witnessed a man that she was so hateful and rude to, that he yelled back at her, and she then proceeded to call the police on him! She was the one that needed to be arrested. I would never go back to this place ! Mediocre food and absolutely horrific service.More

My family goes to Stowe most years for vacation and I always make sure we get food here at least once. Everything is so fresh and delicious and the staff are always wonderful. I’m thinking about our next trip and Cafe On Main is a...must.More

My family and I usually visit Cafe on Main when staying at the Green Mountain Inn right down the street. The cafe is super cozy and has a variety of different breakfast/lunch options. The service has always been excellent and the food comes out quick....Highly recommend this cafe!More

Only in Stowe for a day. When leaving the next day stopped to have a quick breakfast. It's a tiny place inside an old building with multiple shops. They have the best coffee I've ever had. I had the English muffin with egg/cheese/ham. My husband...has the waffle with sausage. Both delicious. They had really yummy looking bakery items. I wish we hadn't resisted getting something for a snack later in the day. Fun little place to stop for breakfast, lunch or a yummy bakery item. Don't miss the coffee.More

There is a nice choice of salads and sandwiches, as well as delicious baked goods. The dining area is small but fine. There is outdoor seating in the summer. The staff is friendly and courteous.

My wife and I were in Stowe for a wedding, and wanted to avoid the $15/per charge at the hotel for breakfast, so we wandered about 50 feet down the street to Cafe on Main. No fuss, no muss. Eggs, toast, and coffee for two,...and were out the door for $12.84 tax included. People behind the counter were smiling, friendly, and competent. By the third morning, we were treated as regulars, and I guess we were :)More
