Just like eating at your grandma's house -- felt right at home. This is where the locals eat. Friendly service and ends with an old fashioned handwritten waitress tab -- where's Flo:) Mary's breakfast sandwich was just right for me -- big hunka white Vermont cheddah -- oh yeah and crispy bacon and scrambled eggs. It's like a folded omelette... More

My husband and I have eaten numerous times at Mary's Cafe for lunch and really enjoy their specials. I have to say Monday and Wednesdays are our favorites. Monday is chicken and biscuits, mashed potato, (squash or peas) and cranberry sauce. Wednesday is a fabulous meat loaf with mashed potatoes and corn (which tastes like corn on the cob. Of... More

Among us we tried the pancakes, scrambled eggs, and egg sandwich and donuts. The food is very good...very generous and incredibly affordable. The staff are friendly and cheerful. And if you listen you will definitely pick up on the local gossip. Best part is, this restaurant opens at 5:30am! No waiting for morning coffee.

A good place to get breakfast. Homemade jam for your toast and everything is made fresh. You can adjust any of the menu items so it's tailored to your taste. Wonderful service, and a lovely little spot to start the day. I do have one suggestion - the coffee is very weak. Invest in some *good* coffee, charge a bit... More

Although the restaurant is very small and you should have a reservation I found that the breakfast was very good with unlimited coffee refills!

I have had lunch once at Mary's, a small local place. I had the daily special, hot turkey sandwich with green beans, stuffing and cranberry sauce ~ a standard dinner meal. Turkey was rather good, hand carved, not machine cut and the cranberry sauce was also good, but that is were it stopped. The beans were grossly over cooked, boiled... More

We discovered Mary's Cafe on the fourth morning of an 8-day stay in Vermont, and we never ate the complimentary breakfast at our hotel again. The food is delicious, the portions ample, the prices low, and the servers warm and personable. It was a delightful treat to start each day there.
