There are so many quality restaurants in the Stowe area that its hard to pick just one favorite, but if you're into breakfast in a big way, then McCarthy's IS YOUR SPOT ! Great atmosphere, great service, incredible menu with huge portions and the PUMPKIN PIE WALNUT BELGIUM WAFFLE is the most incredible breakfast item I've ever eaten. Gluten-Free options... More

Breakfast available until closing at 2 pm. Good lunch selections. Homemade desserts. Service was a little slow but everything was good. Only issue was they don't take credit cards. Bring cash. ATM on-site with usual fees.

Had breakfast here with friends. The place was PACKED so you know its good. The service was fast, all of the employees were a little disheveled but overall good. I had the french toast with a side of bacon and it was delicious! Would definitely return. Don't be intimidated by the wait, they turn the tables over extremely fast and... More

Bring a big appetite and cash. Absolutely a family oriented breakfast place. You don't have to be Irish (we are ) to enjoy eating here, although, you'll feel like doing a jig when you see the portions.

There are lots of great restaurants in Stowe. We live very close. Even so, it's almost a "go to" place for Sunday breakfast, lunch with friends, etc. Food's always good, simple but good and reasonably priced. Just got back from breakfast there today and decided to let everyone know the simple truth. It's where the locals go. One other thing.... More

We went to McCarhy's for breakfast on Sunday morning after reading the stellar reviews on Tripadvisor. Overall, we have been underwhelmed by the food and definitely not consider this place for neither breakfast nor any other meal. Here are the details: - Portions were smaller than what I'd expect. I wish I had taken pictures to upload here but, espacially... More

We had breakfast there this morning. Service was quick and we got our food quickly also. Food was delicious and you could order in small portions which I appreciated. Highly recommend the Vermont maple sausages Staff were very friendly. FYI cash only

Friendly staff. Great choice. Not over expensive. Just what you want in the morning. Omelettes were great as was the house granola.

McCarthy's is a down home type of eatery. Don't let the Irish name and decor fool you. The eatery has a large selection of cuisines and they serve breakfast all day long. A very convenient place to eat.

Thank Doc J
